Converting fundraising neophytes into leading socialites, SFS aims to attract new donors through fun and entertainment while introducing them to a variety of charitable organizations in the hope of creating long-lasting relationships. “We rotate our causes every two years, believing that this allows us to expose our audience to a variety of charities and helps them find the causes that they’re most passionate about. By connecting people with their passion, we hope to inspire lifelong benefactors.”
The San Francisco Social held this past Saturday gathered more than 500 young adults at the Fairmont Hotel to raise over $75,000 for Larkin Street Youth Services, an organization helping San Francisco’s youth move beyond street life for over 28 years. Saturday’s crowd was young, hip, tech-savvy, and passionate about giving.
Larkin Street Youth Services offers safe housing, hot meals, medical care, and warm clothing to youth ages 12 to 24. Once their basic needs are met, Larkin Street provides youth with opportunities to complete their education, obtain employment, and ultimately, achieve personal and financial independence.
Larkin Street Youth Services helps thousands of homeless youth each year get off the streets and become contributing members of our community.
The San Francisco Social debuted it’s first-ever San Francisco Social Benefit Dinner on Friday, May 18th to a sold-out crowd at Foreign Cinema. The goal of the event was to raise additional support and awareness for Larkin Street Youth Services, a social service organization that provides housing, medical, social and educational services to thousands of at-risk, homeless and runaway youth. The event was also a preview of the annual San Francisco Social, the annual fundraiser which is taking place November 10th at the Fairmont.
