Jane Hammond Events had the pleasure of working with Twitter on their first San Francisco holiday party since moving to their new offices on Market Street. The event was at the Herbst Pavilion at Fort Mason, where nearly 2,000 guests went on a journey through the districts of SF at their “Welcome Home to SF” holiday celebration.
Guests entered through a reproduction of the Golden Gate Bridge, and perused the districts of SF on the main floor, or walked up Lombard Street, and viewed the partiers below from the elevated Lombard Street Bar.
Chef Heidi Hornikel created a Districts of SF menu, with an array of trendy and delicious passed appetizers, and playful stations celebrating the personality of some of the main districts of SF.
MC Hammer delighted the crowd until the lights came up.

Featured Event: Life Technologies Product Unveiling
As part of this year's American Society of Human Genetics Annual Meeting, Life Technologies hosted the Explore Art and Science event at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SF MoMA) on November 7th. 400 guests attended and were treated to an evening that brought modern art and modern science together. JHE provided an innovative stations menu and our lighting team transformed the space to highlight the exhibits and new products from Life Technologies. Guests browsed the museum's galleries, sipped on "Ion-Torrentinis" at the bar, and amused themselves with a temporary tattoo parlor.
