Dessert First!

Macy's and Project Open Hand invite you to celebrate the sweetness of life at DESSERT FIRST on Sunday, May 5, 2013 at San Francisco's beautiful Four Seasons Hotel. The Bay Area’s most talented pastry chefs will come together to create their signature desserts for you to taste. In addition to decadent desserts, there will be tasty hors d’oeuvres, creative cocktails by SKYY, fine wines, live music and lively dancing, silent and live auctions, and lots more. We can't wait to see you there!

There will be a VIP Pre-Party presented by Whole Foods Market from 4-5 p.m. featuring a Mixology Competition where some of the Bay Area’s top cocktail creators will battle it out to create the tastiest cocktail of them all - and YOU are the judge.
