GLIDE is the heart and soul of San Francisco.

On December 4, 2013, GLIDE is celebrating the 50-year anniversary year of Co-Founders Rev. Cecil Williams and Janice Mirikitani at GLIDE and their mission to change the world. This partnership transformed a church into a social movement of service and spirit powered by unconditional love and acceptance.

 

We will be returning to the historic San Francisco War Memorial Opera House.This year, Dr. Maya Angelou, Valerie Simpson, Judith Hill, and an all-star lineup will take us on a musical journey of song and storytelling including San Jose Taiko and Tom Johnston of the Doobie Brothers. The event honors the 50 year epic love story between Cecil, Janice, the City of San Francisco, and the beloved community committed to justice and programs and opportunities for marginalized people to alleviate their suffering and make meaningful change in their lives.  An Honorary Host Committee is led by  luminaries and Co-Chairs Dr. Maya Angelou, Pam & Larry Baer, Richard Blum, Senator Dianne Feinstein, and Robin Williams.

 

The Mistress of Ceremonies will be World Champion San Francisco Giants announcer and radio personality, Renel Brooks-Moon. The GLIDE Annual Holiday Festival benefits Mo’s Kitchen, the heart and soul behind GLIDE’s Daily Meals Program which serves up nearly a million free meals each year to San Francisco’s poor and hungry residents and all GLIDE programs.

 

Sponsorship Opportunities are available. For more information, please call 415.674.6117 or email festival@glide.org.
