We all have a few celebrities we’d like to toss in a pool. Like Ryan Gosling, mainly because we want to see him wet. (Oh, come on. Tell me you don’t want to see that.) Ryan Gosling won’t be there, but Team Twitter will.
Celebrity hurling has been a proud tradition for Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation (TNDC) since 1992, tossing celebrities like Robin Williams, Kristi Yamaguchi, and Mayor Willie Brown into a pool to support TNDC’s mission of providing safe, affordable housing in the Tenderloin for low-income seniors, families, and people with disabilities.
Tomorrow’s fundraiser includes former Oakland Raider Jarrod Cooper, SF Giants mascot Lou Seal, San Francisco Supervisor Jane Kim and, of course, Team Twitter. Emcees include MC Hammer and Cheryl Jennings of ABC7. Toned lifeguards will be on hand to make sure no one drowns or lacks for eye candy.
October 11. Phoenix Hotel, 601 Eddy Street. Tickets are $125 at 415-358-3944.
