SAN FRANCISCO (May 16, 2019) – Telegraph Hill Neighborhood Center (TEL HI) today, announces their annual gala fundraiser, “A Taste of TEL HI” at San Francisco’s Oracle Park (formerly AT&T Park) on Friday, May 31, 2019 from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm. This gala event is open to the public and will benefit TEL HI’S “Power of S.T.E.A.M.” (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) educational programs, one of the many programs TEL HI provides in direct services to families, youth and seniors. The TEL HI Neighborhood Center is a community non-profit that has been operating for 129 years and serves over 1,000 people each day.
The ballpark’s Club Level event will be emceed by Renel Brooks-Moon, the pioneering female announcer in Major League Baseball and Franco Finn the animated and irresistible hypeman for the Golden State Warriors. San Francisco Mayor London Breed will be a featured guest speaker and a special appearance by San Francisco’s famed Beach Blanket Babylon will highlight the evening. Guests will enjoy exquisite wines, a culinary dinner from Oracle Park’s executive chef David Button, and have a chance to win over 100 silent and live auction items including SF Giants and SF Warriors Dream Packages, fabulous vacation getaways and a private dinner at 25 Lusk among others.
“The Power of S.T.E.A.M. at TEL HI will introduce kids of all ages to science, technology, engineering, arts and math in fun and creative ways,” says Nestor L. Fernandez II, CEO and executive director of TEL HI. “Our goal is to provide opportunities for our kids to develop skills and expertise that will help them succeed in their future.” S.T.E.A.M. has become popular with educators who realized that S.T.E.M. education alone was not as effective without the art (A) element to enhance student learning outcomes.
The mission of TEL HI is to promote stability for families and children, to build skills and self-worth in their client base to help them succeed, and to support seniors so they may stay vital and independent. They do this by providing a myriad of free and low-cost programs such as early child care, pre- and after-school programs, summer camps and senior programs.
A Taste of TEL HI gala tickets are $240, reception-only tickets are available for $100 and may be purchased here. For further information on sponsorships please visit www.telhi.org or call Yvonne Curley at 415-580-7227.
