This year, Crescendo — SFGMC's signature fundraising event — is getting a makeover! 

After a decade, our signature brunch is growing into a full-fledged gala. Join us at the stunning Ritz-Carlton San Francisco for an evening bursting with fabulous — from a very special celebrity host to champagne, cocktails, must-have auction items and dancing. Don’t miss a single moment!

To celebrate the theme of our season, we will be honoring several local San Francisco organizations that build bridges and create positive change in the LGBT community and beyond. Additionally, we will highlight several special individuals who continue to transform
hearts and minds with their tireless work and compassion.
