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.
