The Glide Legacy Gala Is Rad But Totally Online (And Crazy Affordable) This Year
San Francisco’s best charity ball is still happening in 2020, though online of course, as the 11th annual Glide Legacy Gala is this Saturday, August 15, at 8 p.m. It’s a virtual celebration that still features a digital DJ Dance Party, the awards ceremony, and words from your activists — with Michael Franti of Spearhead in the mix this year!
Michael Franti will be receiving the Reverend Cecil Williams Legacy Award, while poet and activist Amanda Gorman, the first-ever National Youth Poet Laureate, will receive the Janice Mirikitani Legacy Award. And DJ KingMost will be on the decks for the bomb-beats dance party.
Since this year’s festivities are online-only, a donation of any amount gets you access to the livestream. (Suggested minimum donation is $25). A donation of $100 or more gets you “exclusive entry to the Legacy Gala VIP rooms featuring a SnapFiesta photo booth, improv classes hosted by Speechless, a bartending demo from Tonic Go, and more”. The deluxe deal at $1,000 or more includes “VIP room access and a custom Legacy Gala Kit complete with exclusive GLIDE swag, all the fixings for custom cocktails from Tonic Go and Tres Agaves, and delectable treats from a number of San Francisco’s most beloved eateries, including 25 Lusk, Pa’ina Restaurant & Lounge and Petit Crenn.”
Even throughout this public health emergency, Glide has been serving up 15,000 meals a week, and essential services to their unhoused and low-income Tenderloin neighbors. Glide Legacy Gala tickets are more affordable than ever this year, and Glide’s mission is more important than ever this year, so grab your tickets and get dressed up for the first time in five months for the “most highly black-tie optional party of the year!”
