When: Friday, May 3rd, 9pm to 2am (VIP Reception from 8-9pm)
Where: Public Works, 161 Erie Street, San Francisco, CA 94103
Why: Make the first LGBT adult homeless shelter in San Francisco a reality with 100% of your proceeds going toward the Dolores Street Project.
Rampant homelessness is something that stares San Franciscans in the face everyday. While we like to think that San Francisco offers a plethora of shelters and assistance programs, what most of us don’t realize is that LGBTQ homeless people can’t safely access these shelters because their identity makes them a target for violence.
On May 3rd, Reason to Party is throwing one of our signature Galas to benefit Dolores Street Project, an initiative to build the city’s first LGBTQ homeless shelter and tackle this issue head on. To make this shelter a reality, RTP is dedicating 100% of the proceeds from the event.
Come prepared to have your senses stimulated throughout the evening with cutting-edge audiovisuals, dancers soaring through the air, 2 floors of entertainment and DJs, and an open sponsored bar. Reason to Party promises an evening you won’t forget. Let’s join together and make a lasting impact in the lives of LGBT and transgender individuals who experience homelessness in San Francisco everyday. One party is going to make the world of a difference to hundreds.
