Thank you to everyone who joined us for the first-ever ULI San Francisco Gala on Thursday, September 29, 2022!
We were thrilled to gather in person after all these months apart and to Reconnect and Renew our collective commitment to ULI San Francisco’s vision and values. The ULI San Francisco Gala provided a time and place to celebrate our community’s resilience and everything and everyone that makes ULI San Francisco so special and meaningful to all of us.
A ticket to the Gala provided access to an incredible night filled with drinks, a variety of hors d’oeuvres, live music, and merriment at a beautiful San Francisco venue with an expansive outdoor patio. We featured delicious food prepared by four up-and-coming vendors from San Francisco’s La Cocina. The mission of La Cocina is to cultivate low-income food entrepreneurs as they formalize and grow their businesses. La Cocina focuses primarily on providing resources to women from communities of color and immigrant communities. ULI SF is proud to support La Cocina’s mission and offerings at the Gala will range from Nepalese dumplings and Algerian puff pastries to Mexican tamales and Senegalese flatbread.
The fun-filled night with also featured live music from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. We celebrated alongside a live four-piece band performing old standbys and contemporary favorites.
ULI SF believes that the best way to effect change within the industry is to lead by example. To that end, 25% of proceeds from the Gala went towards ULI SF’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives. Your support directly contributed to the advancement of our mission to shape the future of the built environment for transformative impact in our community.
