For over four decades, GLIDE has been there to help our brothers and sisters overcome their struggles and celebrate life! Today more than ever, we are there to meet those needs.
On Thursday, December 2, 2010 at the San Francisco Warfield Theatre, we celebrated the Glide Annual Holiday Festival, our largest gala fundraiser and a time for us to come together.
Co-hosted by Richard C. Blum, Janice Mirikitani, California First Lady Maria Shriver, Cecil Williams and Robin Williams, our theme was Bringing Down the House with joy and laughter – to benefit Glide’s programs to feed the hungry with hope, humanity, humor…and fried chicken. This year's event, was filled with fun and adventure from a surprise cast of characters including live entertainment from comedians Robin Williams, W. Kamau Bell, Selene Luna and Johnny Steele, and the Glide Ensemble and Change Band.
