Robin Williams and W. Kamau Bell at Glide’s Annual Holiday Festival
If you want to support San Francisco's disenfranchised in this season o’ charitable giving, but need more compelling incentive than a dude with a red bucket and bell - incentive like, say, Robin Williams and fried chicken - mark Thursday for Glide’s annual fundraiser. You'll get world-class comedy and the smug satisfaction of supporting Glide's grand tradition of helping Tenderloin residents find their feet and their spirit.
Ticket money funnels straight into Mo’s Kitchen, a Glide program that dishes up nearly one million meals a year for San Francisco’s poorest residents. Don’t worry, you'll get fed too. After the show, feel free to hover vulture-like over the buffet tables loaded with tasty grub/epicurean delights from local restaurants - including, we presume, fried chicken.
December 2. Warfield Theatre, 982 Market Street. Tickets are $65-500 at glide.org.
