About the 2018 Gala and After-Party
Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco together with co-chairs Brandon Boze, Chris Clifford, Thayer Meicler, and Michael Neruda are pleased to announce the 2018 Gala & After-Party.
Friday, May 11, 2018
Fort Mason Festival Pavilion, 2 Marina Boulevard
Interactive Exhibits and Cocktails | Dinner and Program | After-Party
This year, join us to celebrate the unique programs that have helped youth in San Francisco build great futures and become tomorrow’s leaders. Guests will peruse interactive exhibits during the reception and experience the exceptional talents of our youth members during the dinner program.
After the Gala, all guests are invited to join us to continue the celebration. The After-Party will feature an array of desserts, full premium bar and dancing to Lawrence, The Band. Led by siblings Clyde Lawrence and Gracie Lawrence, the New York-based soul-pop group recently released their 12-song debut LP, Breakfast, which blends old-school and new-school vibes to create a set of songs that sound as good on the record as they do at their high-energy live shows. An act on the rise, Lawrence has been featured at Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, South by Southwest and more. Join us as they grace the stage at this year’s BGCSF Gala After-Party! Individual tickets to the After-Party will be available closer to the event date.

Generation after generation, BGCSF has continued to innovate and evolve, all while meeting the needs of our children and families. Each decade brought new challenges and opportunities – some local, some national, and some global. From the industrial revolution to the digital revolution, through two World Wars, a great depression and two devastating earthquakes, Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco has been a force for good in kids’ lives.

Parking and Transportation
Friday is a busy night at Fort Mason, with our Gala, Off the Grid, and a few other events happening simultaneously. Due to this, we strongly encourage all attendees to take advantage of ridesharing and taxi options or public transportation. Parking at Fort Mason is available, but most parking spots will be a several minute walk to the entrance of Fort Mason Center’s Festival Pavilion, where the Gala is happening. If you arrive by Uber, Lyft or a taxi, look for our Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco signs and volunteers to help direct your car to the Festival Pavilion for drop-off.
