Over the weekend, the Masonic hosted a benefit for All Within My Hands (AWMH), a nonprofit foundation focused on creating sustainable communities by tackling the issues of hunger and workforce education and encouraging volunteerism. The organization was formed by none other than classic metal band Metallica, where they performed a rare acoustic set for their beloved Bay Area with the help of fresh local faces like Cody Rhodes and Avi Vinocur.

The evening’s auction featured autographed music memorabilia, collectibles, and more, helped raise more money for their foundation. Bidding on items continues to November 9 and can be found here.

We were lucky to have our photographer Jon Bauer at the event and he captured the evening in the gallery below.
