We’re very excited and proud to announce our honoree for the 15th annual Paving the Way Gala: Jeremy Affeldt, three-time World Series champion and former pitcher with the San Francisco Giants, advocate for Larkin Street, author, and founder of Generation Alive.

“I care about the cause of homeless youth because I know these kids aren’t hopeless throwaways,” says Jeremy. “These kids want to find a positive future, and with our help, they can. Thousands of youth have gotten off the streets, and stayed off the streets, thanks to Larkin Street’s Youth Services.”

The Paving the Way Gala brings together more than 400 Larkin Street supporters, donors, volunteers and community leaders who “paved the way” for Larkin Street since the organization’s founding in 1984.

Since 2003, the Paving the Way Gala has raised over $8 million to benefit Larkin Street’s housing, education, employment and physical/mental health programs!

The evening will include a cocktail reception, silent and live auction, sit-down dinner and award ceremony and is followed by an after-party hosted by Friends of Larkin Street.

In addition to Mr. Affeldt, we’ll also honor two young people from our programs with our annual “Going the Distance” awards, celebrating their journeys to build lasting well-being in their lives.

And, last but certainly not least, Renel Brooks-Moon, Voice of the San Francisco Giants, emcees the event. We hope to see you there!
