Photos: 7x7 and Pacific Gas & Electric Award San Francisco's Favorite Charities 2012

On December 11, 7x7 and Pacific Gas & Electric proudly honored the finalists of this year's search for San Francisco's Favorite Charities in the lovely Crown Room atop the Fairmont Hotel.

Team members and passionate supporters from each of the beloved nonprofits—WOMAN, Inc., Rocket Dog Rescue, Larkin Street Youth Services, Upwardly Global, Meals on Wheels SF, SF Smiles, and Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco—were treated to stunning views of the city they serve, with delicious hors d'oeuvres from the Fairmont's caterers, and holiday beverages from our partners Finlandia Vodka, Glenfiddich Scotch, Peroni beer, and Peju Province Winery.

The stunning room was made even more lovely by our event partners Blueprint Studios and award-winning Church Street Flowers.

PG&E's Vice-President of Community Relations, Ezra Garrett and 7x7's President Todd Sotkiewicz spoke about the Favorite Charities program and welcomed the directors, founders, and leaders from this year's finalists onstage before presenting each category winner with a $2000.00 grant from PG&E. This year's top winner—Upwardly Global—received a special grant for $10,000.00.
