SAVE THE DATE for the next Paving the Way gala: Friday, March 16, 2018
Thank you, Paving the Way 2017!!!
This year was even better than we could have imagined – after verifying our calculations, we are proud to share that we raised nearly one million dollars to end youth homelessness!
Thank you so much to everyone who made this incredible night possible: our generous sponsors, donors, and attendees, plus the event committee, volunteers, staff and each of our fabulous presenters.
Renel Brooks-Moon, voice of the San Francisco Giants, wowed us, as always, with her energy and enthusiasm for the cause.
Jeremy Affeldt gave such an amazing, moving speech that really cemented the importance of caring for others in our community.
Our two youth speakers, Ameer Acker and Stephanie Monroe, who were recognized with our “Going the Distance” award, inspired us all with their courage and resilience.
And a special shoutout to Wilkes Bashford for donating a beautiful SF Giants -inspired orange tie for Jeremy to wear at the event! The ties on Ameer and Stephanie in the photo above were donated by Jeremy to Larkin Street after his fans sent him an abundance to wear on air, another fun crossover for all involved.
What was your highlight of the night? It’s hard for us to pick a favorite moment, but dinner by the Four Seasons was wonderful, as well as the incredible silent and live auction lots!
Each year it’s hard to imagine how the event could get better, but with the combined talent of everyone involved, this was a truly successful and memorable event.
Many thanks to our talented photographer Laurie Gordon! Click any photo to enlarge it and view the gallery.
