Jennifer Siebel Newsom and Vernon Davis To Be Honored at Glide Gala

Event:  Glide Legacy Gala
Date:  Saturday, July 28
Place:  Regency Ballroom, San Francisco

GLIDE, the San Francisco philanthropic organization dedicated to empowerment, recovery and personal transformation, has touched tens of thousands of lives since its inception in 1929.

On July 28, 2012, Glide presents the 3rd annual GLIDE Legacy Gala-A Love Supreme.  The black-tie affair is an evening of music, dance and celebration that recognizes the important work of the city’s philanthropists who are dedicated to improving the lives of others.

This year, the Gala will honor San Francisco 49er Vernon Davis and award-winning filmmaker Jennifer Siebel Newsom for their dedication to the improvement and empowerment of the community.

“I am thrilled to be honored by GLIDE for my achievements and talents to help young people around the world overcome obstacles in order to reach their full potential,” said Vernon Davis.

The GLIDE Legacy Gala raises funds for programs of the GLIDE Foundation so it can continue to provide innovative and comprehensive services to the poor and marginalized in the San Francisco community.

The fundraising momentum started one month ago when GLIDE received a generous donation from the 13th annual eBay auction for lunch with Warren Buffet. The  lunch sold sold for a staggering $3,456,789, and 100% of the proceeds goes to GLIDE.  eBay and Restaurant Lulu hosted a party for GLIDE supporters to cheer on the final moments of the auction.
