"Experiencing fado at The Pines is as close to being in Portugal as you can get".... Nuno Mathias, former Consul General of Portugal in San Francisco.

The Pines is once again proud to be the host venue for Fado at The Pines and to support the Sausalito - Cascais Youth Sailing Exchange Program.

The Pines is a 14,000 Square foot Queen Anne Victorian home on Miller Avenue in Sausalito, California, built in 1888. Today it is owned by Gil Purcell and Roxanne Sheridan, who make it available as a venue for selected charitable fundraisers. The Sausalito - Cascais Sister Cities Council hosted their first fundraiser at The Pines. Purcell and Sheridan purchased the home over 10 years ago and following that undertook a labor-intensive effort to restore its beauty. Thank you for your warm hospitality and opening your home to fundraiser for a great cause.
