Highly Anticipated Hotbed Benefit 2016 Tickets Now on Sale

The Annual Gala by the Drever Family Foundation Will Be Hosted by Sharon Stone

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - May 05, 2016) - The Drever Family Foundation has announced that tickets to their annual, head-line catching gala, Hotbed Benefit, are now available for purchase online. This year's Benefit, themed as a 1920's French circus featuring Fund-a-Need and live auctions, an art gallery, and fashion show, will benefit Planet Hope. Sharon Stone will return as the event's host and auctioneer with TV host Frankie Grande joining as the ringmaster for the evening. The main attraction will feature fashion by couture designer Tony Ward. There will also be special musical performances by Victoria Noyes and American Idol's Rayvon Owen.

"We are especially excited about this year's Hotbed Benefit," said Galen Drever, Events Director for the Drever Family Foundation. "Sharon Stone will be returning as our host and auctioneer and we will be supporting her and her sister's incredible foundation, Planet Hope. This year's theme is full of thrilling surprises, and we look forward to giving our guests another unforgettable experiential evening."

Since beginning in 2012, the annual Benefit has evolved with changing themes. Each year, the event has doubled the total funds raised -- exponentially increasing donations to the partner organization.

"With Hotbed 2016, we're really trying to show what we can do with our gala, and raise the bar of how much we can donate to local charities to support education and the arts," Drever continued. "Having almost immediately sold out pre-sale tickets, we're looking forward to raising expectations again."

Tickets to this year's Hotbed Benefit are available at Hotbed Main Event Individual Admission: $250; Official Hotbed After Party: $150 (After Party tickets not sold separately). The Hotbed benefit will take place at the Drever Family Estate in Tiburon on June 4, 2016 beginning at 6:00pm.
