Sherry and Betsey Warrick were the guests of honor on Saturday, September 19th at a benefit for I-House which recognized them for 70 years of marriage. For 26 years Sherry served as Executive Director of I-House, with Betsey right beside him. This night of memories and friendship included a performance by the UC Berkeley Men’s Octet, an intimate interview with Sherry and Betsey, and a singalong, followed by a dessert reception in the newly renovated I-House Dining Commons. View photos of the evening.

Special thanks to Narsai David for the generous donation of wine, and I-House Board member Milan Kaur for her raffle prize donation of a two-night stay in Lake Tahoe.
