SAN FRANCISCO - Oct. 24, 2018 - PRLog -- Bay Area real estate veteran, John Winther (, will be this year's honoree at the 34th Annual Gala & Auction held by the San Francisco Bay Area Council of the Boy Scouts.

Mr. Winther is the founder and Managing Partner of Oakland-based Harvest Properties (, a full-service real estate investment firm active in the ownership, development and operation of commercial properties through Northern California.

The Gala will be held on Saturday, November 3 at the Intercontinental Mark Hopkins in San Francisco.  Proceeds from the gala & auction assist the Council in making sure inner city and "at risk" youth are able to participate in a variety of outdoor experiences, including summer camp.  Among the speakers for the evening will be Explorer Scout Quadrick Reeder, of Oakland, discussing his scouting experiences.

Mr. Winther is an Eagle Scout and an Assistant Scout Master in his sons' scout troops, where his three boys have earned and/or are in process of earning their Eagle Scouts. He founded Harvest Properties in 2002 and the firm has transacted assets valued at more than $3 billion for the range of institutional partners and private investors and has approximately 10 million square feet of office, industrial and R&D space under management throughout the Bay Area.

"Scouting is such a integral part of my family and the SFBA Council does stellar work in bringing the benefits of scouting to at-risk youth in the Bay Area. It's truly an honor to be recognized by my peers in the Bay Area business and real estate community at this very worthwhile event," said Winther.

In recent months, the Boy Scouts of America have made history by offering iconic "Family Scouting (" programs to both boys and girls for the convenience of the entire family. The Gala Committee has also been continually focused on supporting local families and communities by providing educational programs that focus on developing leadership skills and building personal character.  As a result, over a thousand youth are gifted time at camp ( to have experiences outside of their urban neighborhoods.

Note:  Past Gala honorees have included:

* Matt Field of TMG Partners

* Rajiv S. Patel of Spear Street Capital
* Jeffery Weber of Eastdil Secured
