Thanks to the generosity of the Fr. Illo, Fr. Michael, Fr. Sebastian, and the Star of the Sea Community, the Bella Health & Wellness 1st Annual Bella Founders Gala was an amazing success and we could not have done it without all of you.
Our Lord abundantly blessed us with generous donors, inspiring speakers, talented musicians and hard-working volunteers like you to provide an evening with our prolife friends and family to celebrate the long awaited opening of San Francisco’s new Catholic primary care medical center.

"When I walked into the Star of the Sea gymnasium, I was shocked by its transformation. Golden velveteen covering the walls and party bulbs crisscrossing the room emitted a warm, welcoming glow. But this was the least of my surprises. I expected to see all the old comrades who, God bless them, have been turning out for pro-life events in this city for decades. What I did not expect were all the new faces, especially those of the young volunteers who bused tables, played jazz, and heaven knows what else. My congratulations to the Bella Founders Gala Team, who organized this event, and everyone who helped them to make parting people from their money so enjoyable and encouraging."
