Academy of Friends VIP Gift Bag Stuffing

And the award goes to ... all BRIDGEMEN who join us for a morning of camaraderie and tchotchoke as we partner with The Academy of Friends to stuff VIP gift bags for their anual Academy Awards Gala.

Academy of Friends annually produces the world’s premier Academy Awards Night Charity Gala as the centerpiece of its efforts to raise funds, award donations, and encourage volunteerism that benefit a diverse group of organizations who provide HIV/AIDS prevention, education and direct care services in San Francisco.

After we stuff the bags, we'll stuff ourselves with a late lunch together at a restaurant nearby.

Saturday, February 23 | 10:00am-1:00pm

Terra Gallery & Event Venue, 511 Harrison Street at 1st Street.

All proceeds from the 2013 Gala benefit:

AIDS Legal Referral Panel, Asian & Pacific Islander Wellness Center, Larkin Street Youth Services, Maitri, Mission Neighborhood Health Center (Clinica Esperanza), and Pets Are Wonderful Support (PAWS).

    Hey guys, this will be a fun way to get to know other BRIDGEMEN over some light activity, with lunch to follow, if you are available. The more volunteers we have, the faster the project will go, and the sooner we will be able to go out to eat! Please feel free to contact me at [masked] if you have any questions about this activity. I hope to see you there!
