GLIDE Annual Holiday Jam:
Legends Live

You're invited to Glide's annual Holiday Jam! It's an inspiring evening with live performances and features the legendary Joan Baez, Rita Moreno, and Paula West. Join Glide to celebrate the Living Legends in "all" our communities!
The all-star Legendary line-up is joined by MC Renel Brooks-Moon, the Glide Ensemble and the Change Band, and Glide co-founders Reverend Cecil Williams and Janice Mirikitani!
Enjoy the post-concert reception with hors d'oeuvres and libations from some of the San Francisco Bay Area's finest restaurants and beverage companies. Festive attire suggested.
Benefiting Mo's Kitchen and Glide's programs, the evening's honorary co-chairs include The Honorable Willie L. Brown, Jr., Richard Blum, Senator Dianne Feinstein, Felicia and Ben Horowitz, Dolores Huerta, and Phyllis Lyon. Recently departed legends and beloved Glide family members, Dr. Maya Angelou, who had agreed to be Honorary Co-Chair for this year's event prior to her passing, and Robin Williams, last year's Honorary Co-Chair and headliner for the 2010 Holiday Festival, will be celebrated during the evening's events.
Mo's Kitchen serves three meals a day, seven days a week, to San Francisco's poorest residents - nearly one million meals a year.
Having recently celebrated its landmark 50th anniversary of daily service, Glide works to create a radically inclusive, just and loving community mobilized to alleviate suffering and break the cycles of poverty and marginalization. Located in San Francisco's culturally-rich Tenderloin neighborhood, Glide serves a diverse cross-section of homeless, low-income, and disenfranchised populations, providing an array of programs including free meals, primary and mental health care, housing assistance, domestic violence counseling and abatement, substance abuse recovery, licensed childcare, afterschool and summer programs for youth, and a Family Resource Center. Glide has founded and sustained visionary programming, and achieved tangible results for tens of thousands of individuals and families on the margins, all once thought to be beyond the possible.

Tickets start at $65, with sponsorships ranging from $500 to $150,000.
Thursday, December 4. Doors open 6 p.m., Concert 7 p.m., Post-Performance Reception until 10 p.m.
