March SF NACE Sponsor Spotlight: ENO Wine Bar

We've missed everyone, as we have been quiet throughout the beginning of the new year due to sickness, busy busy schedules, and travels- but we can't wait to get the party started on Tuesday, March 27th at the fab ENO Wine Bar! 

A little about the venue:

Set in the heart of Union Square, ENO is San Francisco's newest casual wine bar for
those seeking new tastes. With diverse selections, including 150 by the bottle and up to
50 wines by the glass. ENO enhances the city's abundant wine offerings with new value
and variety. Explore your passion for wine and food with knowledge from vintners,
cheese makers,
and master confectioners, who visit the 75-seat wine room throughout
the year to share their passion and expertise with guests. Remaining true to ENO's goal
of showcasing local merchants, wine, cheese and chocolate selections evolve weekly
based on seasonality, leading to new discoveries at every turn. Excite your thirst for
something new with an easygoing evening of wine tasting that doesn't intimidate. Here
at ENO, first-time sippers and worldly wine travelers alike are welcome to swirl, savor
and sip their way to a relaxing experience in the very center of the City by the Bay.

Our focus is on small production wines from around the world, as well as artisanal
cheeses and chocolates from chocolatiers in the Bay Area. We can accommodate
groups of all sizes, from 15 to 150. As every event is unique, we are happy to work with
you to ensure you are getting everything you want out of your reservation. All events are
quoted on a per-head basis and include unlimited food and wine. Packages can be
negotiated if you would like to increase time allocations or upgrade wine and/or food

2017 SF NACE Gala Sponsor Spotlight: Oye Productions

Patricio Angulo, President of Oyé Productions
Patricio Angulo has been in the music and entertainment industry since 1999. As a musician and event producer, he knows first hand what it takes to make any event run smoothly. His close connection to the current musical scene ensures that all artists represented by Oyé Productions are exciting, fresh, and professional.
Linda Wosskow, Founder of Oyé Productions
Linda Wosskow first became involved in the music industry in 1994 when she started the popular trend of "Sunday Salsa" together with Chata Gutierrez, Bay Area's well known DJ from KPOO. This weekly event eventually moved to Jelly's where it continues to be "the" regular spot for Sunday Salsa. At that same time, she had the honor of meeting Cuban pianist Omar Sosa, as well as many of the Bay Area's Latin and Jazz musicians. Recognizing Omar's amazing talent, Linda started to work with him in local clubs and jazz festivals, and co-produced some of his shows – from here, Oyé Productions was born!
Since that time, Linda helped turn Oyé Productions into the premier booking agency for the Bay Area. In 2006, she announced a new partnership at Oyé Productions, introducing Patricio Angulo to the Oyé tradition, “Patricio has lived in the Bay Area for the last 10 years and I am confident that his well-rounded knowledge in the entertainment business will be an asset to Oyé Productions.”

2017 SF NACE Gala Sponsor Spotlight: Esselle

Our journey began as an online shop curating vintage tableware and decor. After running the shop for a couple years we saw a void in well designed place card holders at it was always the most challenging piece for us to source for the shop.
In late 2015 we made the decision to change the focus of our business and pivoted into a design house and tabletop decor company.
We now design, manufacture and hand paint an assortment of geometric place card /photo/signage holders and coasters for modern weddings, homes, and hostesses.
Our design philosophy centers around functionality with modern aesthetics in mind. All of our products are hand-painted, packaged, and shipped from our Northern California studio.

2017 SF NACE Gala Sponsor Spotlight: SEARCH Foundation

We are honored to say that 20% of all proceeds from every San Francisco NACE event get donated to the SEARCH Foundation, but 100% of every dollar we make for our gala will be donated and earmarked especially for our friendors who were affected by the devastating wine country fires. 


The SEARCH Foundation was formed in 1997 to assist event, meetings and hospitality professionals faced with a life threatening illness. Since that time it has expanded to include not only illness, but also any catastrophic occurrence.
Crisis means many things to many people. Your entire neighborhood washed away in a flood, being ravaged by wildfires, or lost in a tornado. A routine check-up coming back with the dreaded words "you have cancer." A car accident that leaves you impaired or hospitalized for an extended period of time.
The events industry is a group of passionate professionals made up of many small business owners. Who do you turn to when you are faced with disaster or unable to perform your job and keep your business open?

Who doesn't love an awesome photo booth? We do! We're so excited to announce that Giggle & Riot will be joining us again this year for our 2017 gala! 

“We believe the world needs a little more woohoo and a little less snoresville. Amazing fun for drunk people (and their designated drivers), Birthday parties, corporate events, weddings, engagements and just about anything else you can think of, we arrive early to roll out the red carpet as you shimmy, shake and mug for the camera in our innovative, open air photo booth.

Giggle and Riot Funbooths was created by the top notch wedding photographers at Milou and Olin Photography so that guests can have a non-lame photo booth experience at events.

Yup, our first event was a wedding! The whole idea is to reinvent the boring old photo booth concept using high powered studio lights, modern DSLR cameras, our sick sense of humor, top notch customer service, gobs of style, a little giggling and a lot of rioting. The result: a hilarious funbooth that’s as unique, supertastic and fun-filled as you are!

Work it for the lens, and we’ll work it for your soiree.”

We're looking forward to seeing everyone there!

Our 2017 gala is this month and we couldn't be more excited- especially for the opportunity to use this event to fundraise for all of our friendors who have been affected by the devastating wine country fires.

"The San Francisco Mint, also known affectionately as The Granite Lady, was said to have held nearly 1/3 of the nation’s wealth in its heyday. Opening in 1874, it miraculously withstood the devastating effects of the 1906 earthquake/fire and continued in operation until 1937. The Old Mint was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1961"

Just LOOK at how gorgeous this space is:

We can't wait to transform this historic building into an unforgettable evening &  most importantly raise money for our industry friends in need!
