Stunning $3 Million Home Is Center Piece of 2nd Annual Yerba Buena Center for the Arts "Dream House" Raffle Benefit
Winners Drawn July 10; 1st Prize: $3 Million San Francisco "Dream House" or $1.5 Million in Cash; More Than $300,000 in Additional Winnings

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/03/10 -- They came, they saw, they "oohed" and "ahhed" over the luxurious $3 Million 4-bedroom San Francisco home which lives up to its billing as a "dream house" -- the grand prize in the nonprofit Yerba Buena Center for the Arts' 2nd Annual "Dream House" Raffle (www.sfraffle.com). Coming on the heels of last year's first-time event -- widely acclaimed as the most-successful house auction ever held in the United States -- the esteemed cultural complex launched year two of its creative fundraising effort with a reception that brought together media, artists and politicos by 'land and by sea' to emphasize the contest's universal appeal. The grand prize drawing takes place on July 10, 2010 when the grand prize ticket holder will choose between the $3 million dream home and $1.5 million cash.

"Innovation is a core value at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and is reflected in not only our adventurous artistic choices but also in our creative fundraising strategies," says Kenneth J. Foster, YBCA's Executive Director. "Last year we were very pleased with the success of the raffle -- the first of its kind in San Francisco -- which raised money to supplement funding gaps due to the difficult economy. We hope to repeat, if not exceed, last year's success and thank the community for their continued support of the Center as well as the artists we present."

This year's luxurious "Dream House" boasts a "spare-no-expense design." Its exceptional interior and exterior plan features unparalleled craftsmanship and details with 4 bedrooms, 31/2 baths, 4 fireplaces, and exceptional near-360 degree views of the San Francisco skyline and Bay. Built in 1900, the 3,000 square foot California Cedar shingle residence was expanded and completely remodeled in 2002 to exacting standards.

The result is a sophisticated blending of the original historic "Arts & Crafts" structure with a contemporary high-end residential open floor plan. In addition, the house is pending a Green Point Rating Certification, includes a luxurious in-law unit, and boasts a large backyard with an expansive floating deck, spa and sunken garden with world-class landscape features.

Tickets may be purchased by calling 1-800-870-7886 or by downloading the registration form at www.sfraffle.com. Forms can be mailed or dropped off at YBCA Dream House Raffle, 701 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA 94103. Entrants may also fax ticket forms to (415) 324-8554. Ticket purchasers must be 18 years or older, a US resident and meet other requirements in the Rules and Regulations as specified at www.sfraffle.com.

A limit of forty thousand $150 raffle tickets will be sold from March 3, 2010 through the June 25, 2010 deadline. The Grand Prize Drawing will take place on July 10, 2010 at 4:00 PM PDT at a location to be announced. The drawing is open to the public. Prize winners do not need to be present to receive their prize. Prizes 400 - 16 will be drawn beginning at 1 PM on that day. Prizes 15 - 2 as well as the Grand Prize will be drawn beginning at 4:00 PM on that day.

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA), located in San Francisco's Yerba Buena cultural district, is one of the nation's leading multidisciplinary contemporary arts centers. With a belief that contemporary art is at the heart of community life, YBCA brings audiences and artists of all backgrounds together to express and experience creativity. The organization is known for nurturing emerging artists at the forefront of their fields and presenting works that blend art forms and explore the events and ideas of our time. As part of its commitment to the San Francisco Bay Area, YBCA supports the local arts community and reflects the region's diversity of people and thought through its arts and public programming.

Performing arts, visual arts and film/video programs are curated thematically around Big Ideas which illustrate the connections and associations between the works. Public programs and What's the Big Idea? Parties, YBCA's popular free open house series, are dedicated to establishing a deeper understanding and appreciation of contemporary art. YBCA presents programming year-round in the Forum, Screening Room, Galleries and Novellus Theater.
