The next generation of young professionals and philanthropists dressed to the nines and gathered at the Regency Ballroom for the 2014 Glide Legacy Gala. The 5th annual event shines a spotlight on Glide’s positive impact on the community and the individuals who make it all possible. The celebratory affair treated the Bay Area’s top politicians, philanthropists, and influential community members to an evening of bites, cocktails, and conversation. The Glide Ensemble and Change Band kicked off the gala’s live entertainment, and DJ KingMost kept the guests dancing throughout the evening.

During the evening, the Glide Legacy Committee recognized the above-and-beyond contributions of three community members who embody the dedication and spirit of Glide Co-Founders Cecil Williams and Janice Mirikitani. This year’s honorees included Pursuit of Happyness author Christopher Gardner, Lava Mae founder Doniece Sandoval, and Glide Legacy Committee Chair Mike Kim. Glide Minister of Liberation Reverend Cecil Williams commended each of the honorees’ passion for philanthropy and strong connection to the Bay Area community.
