A NEW YEAR'S EVE IN A CLASS ALL ITS OWN

From the leader of San Francisco's “Upscale & Fashion-Forward” Culture Movement, the creator of this year's hottest, most talked about Halloween event: “The Haunted Ball” @ Ana Mandara, comes Donovan's next extravagant upscale masterpiece. After his infamous New Year’s Eve events at City Hall 2009 (See Pics) and Bently Reserve 2008 (See Pics), please join Donovan and his fashion-forward community at San Francisco’s most historical landmark: THE UNITED STATES OLD MINT BUILDING, built in 1874, for “THE NEW YEAR'S 2010 EVENT IN A CLASS ALL IT'S OWN".

The “Old Mint” is rarely opened for special events and this New Year’s Eve is your extremely rare opportunity to view, experience, and celebrate the new year in one of San Francisco’s oldest, most famous historical landmarks.


After producing 1000+ person New Year’s Eve events for the past several years, and with the majority of New Year's events being 1500+ person size events, Donovan has chosen to go back to his “highly exclusive” roots and produce a much more “intimate” experience that truly stands out as the most high-profile, most elegant, most intimate New Year’s Eve event of San Francisco, attracting a classy, upscale crowd of young professionals seeking a “quality” over “quantity” event. So tickets are very limited.

To further differentiate our New Year’s Eve event from all the other mass-market events, Donovan’s New Year’s Eve at The United States Old Mint offers a complimentary bottle of Dom Perignon with every VIP Table, a complimentary glass of Veuve Clicquot champagne at midnight, and complimentary decadent deserts by Godiva chocolates to indulge your senses. Unlike most events with no dress code, Donovan's New Year's Eve is the only “black tie optional” event where we strongly request our gentlemen guests wear a classy suit and tie, and request our lady guests wear an elegant dress. For those looking for the most “unique”, most “culturally rich”, most “classy”, and most “intimate” New Year’s Eve event of San Francisco, Donovan’s “New Year’s Eve @ The United States Old Mint” is unquestionably the unparalleled choice in a class all its own.

Donovan has built a famous reputation for not only drawing the most gorgeous, fabulously-dressed crowd of the city, but also producing the most extravagant, breathtaking productions that go far above and beyond the average New Year's Eve party. Nobody has a stronger reputation in the city at putting more creativity and more meticulous detail into his event productions than Donovan. So when it comes to choosing your New Year's Eve party, you can count on Donovan's NEW YEAR'S EVE 2010 @ THE UNITED STATES OLD MINT being the most extravagant New Year's Eve production & experience of San Francisco.

ABOUT THE UNITED STATES OLD MINT

The San Francisco Mint is a branch of the United States Mint, opened in 1854 to serve the gold mines of the California Gold Rush. It quickly outgrew its first building and moved into its current location in 1874. Within the first year of its operation, The San Francisco Mint turned $4 million in gold bullion into coins. The United States Old Mint, is one of the few buildings that survived the great 1906 San Francisco earthquake. At that time, The Old Mint held $300 million, fully a third of the United States' gold reserves. In 1961, the Old Mint was officially designated a National Historic Landmark.
