Thank you to everyone who joined us at the second annual ULI SF Gala on September 21, 2023!
The ULI SF Gala returned for its second year and provided a time and place to celebrate our community and everything and everyone that makes ULI San Francisco so special and meaningful. In addition to being one of our biggest member celebrations of the year, the Gala offered a chance to dress up, reconnect with ULI peers and colleagues, and support an organization that many believe in. Proceeds from the ULI SF Gala help support our DEI initiatives and other mission priorities.
As San Francisco and other Bay Area cities face a new set of challenges from the current economic downturn, ULI SF is committing to the Downtown Rebound. This year, the Gala was held in the heart of downtown San Francisco at the historic Julia Morgan Ballroom, aptly named after one of San Francisco’s most iconic architects, who was instrumental in rebuilding downtown in the aftermath of the 1906 earthquake and fire.
Julia’s work reminds us of what is possible and inspires us to be persistent and reimagine the cities we all cherish. As California’s first female architect, she also teaches us what diversity, equity, and inclusion in the industry can achieve. We, therefore, can’t think of a better place to connect with ULI SF members, while also raising money for ULI SF’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives.
Friends of ULI SF met on September 21, 2023 for an incredible night filled with cocktails, delicious food, live music from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, and great company at a beautiful San Francisco venue.
If you’re interested in sponsorship opportunities for next year’s Gala, please review our sponsorship brochure and reach out to Natalie Sandoval, ULI SF’s Executive Director, with any questions.
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 will again be donated towards ULI SF’s DEI initiatives. Your support directly contributes to the advancement of our mission to shape the future of the built environment for transformative impact in our community – thank you!
