Annual Plan C Fundraiser Event

Please join Plan C board members and friends at the 10th anniversary of our annual fundraiser on Wednesday, June 22, 2011 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm to celebrate our recent victories – and, most importantly, to discuss our plans going forward.

The night’s featured speakers will be San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, and Supervisor Mark Farrell.

After a decade of hard work and persistence, we have much to celebrate this year with the election of a more moderate Board of Supervisors and many other accomplishments!

Plan C played a direct role in helping elect moderate supervisors Scott Wiener and Mark Farrell, and ensure passage of the Sit/Lie Ordinance and other initiatives. More recently, we worked to promote the payroll tax waiver to keep Twitter in San Francisco and encourage a mid-Market Street economic rebirth.

You can help us build upon our recent successes. Much depends on this coming November’s mayoral race, the first time ranked choice system will be engaged for a mayor’s election. You can count on Plan C, as San Franciscans have since 2001, to provide you with the city’s most widely used moderate voting guide.

Please join us as a sponsor for our 10th Anniversary fundraiser on June 22. Organizational and individual sponsors will be listed as co-hosts, hosts and premier hosts on event invitations, email reminders and signage. Hosts at all levels will receive tickets to the event, the quantity commensurate with donation level. Individual hosts at all levels will receive a one year paid Plan C membership with voting rights.

RSVP and Donate: For more details about giving levels and benefits, click here to sign up for our host committee or join as an individual sponsor.
