Crescendo - SFGMC's Signature Fundraiser - March 12, 2017

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!

With the Chorus' landmark Lavender Pen Tour of southern states coming up in October, we will be focusing on the mission and message of the trip, and raising funds to underwrite the costs associated with such a massive undertaking. 

This year’s star-studded event will honor two-time Emmy and Grammy award-winning comedian Kathy Griffin with the Vanguard Award for her achievements in LGBTQ equality and for using her voice as an agent of change in the movement.

Additionally, we will be honoring Lexus with the Corporate Champion Award and the Hrostowski / Garner Family with the Human Rights Champion Award. 

This year, we will have a special performance by country music artist Chely Wright. The evening will be hosted by a dazzling duo of emcees: My So-Called Life actor Wilson Cruz and winner of RuPaul's Drag Race Season 5 Jinkx Monsoon!
