Shanti, one of the first-ever volunteer organizations to work with terminally-ill individuals, celebrates 39 years of service to the community with their annual Compassion is Universal benefit on October 9 at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square.
The elegant evening highlights the courage of Shanti’s clients, devotion of its volunteers, and generosity of its supporters. Featuring a reception and auction (starting at 5:30 p.m.), seated dinner (at 7 p.m.), and inspirational program, hosted by Janet Reilly, the event will draw over 500 guests from the Bay Area philanthropic community. The event is co-chaired by Ken Fulk and Bahya Oumlil-Murad.
Shanti was one of the very first community-based HIV/AIDS organizations in the world. The organization has trained over 15,000 volunteers in the Bay Area who have provided over 3 million hours of care-giving. Each year, Shanti serves over 2,000 people with Breast Cancer or HIV/AIDS. For so many of those clients, their work represents the difference between zero and one—the difference between a client having to face a life-threatening illness alone or having at least one caring presence at his or her side.
Tickets to this amazing events start at $185 and can be purchased here. (100% of all tickets and auction sales will benefit people battling HIV/AIDS, Breast Cancer, and other life threatening illnesses.) Compassion is Universal is presented by The Honorable James C. Hormel & Michael P. Nguyen, and Nordstrom. 10/9, 333 O'Farrell St @ Mason.
