On June 19, 7x7 staged a lively event to kickoff SF Pride Week, honoring hometown hero Wells Fargo's long-standing commitment to the LGBT community.
Guests converged at 111 Minna Gallery to engage with staffers and executives from a variety of the financial institution's departments, including Tracy Curtis (Regional President, Wells Fargo San Francisco), who spoke of 25 years of support, including sponsorship of the City's largest public event—and the largest LGBT gathering in the nation—the world-famous San Francisco Pride celebration and parade.
The party also raised awareness of the Youth Program at the SF LGBT Center, a beneficiary of Wells Fargo's support. Executive Director Rebecca Wolfe and volunteer Michelle Wright conducted a fantastic raffle for cherished gift bags, which included cute stuffed pony toys from Wells Fargo; tickets to Frameline36, the annual SF LGBT Film Festival; and an awesome grand prize courtesy of Carmel Valley Ranch.
The guest check-in table was adorned by a gorgeous Pride-themed arrangement from Church Street Flowers. The eclectic crowd of professionals enjoyed a scrumptious homestead station and passed bites from Small Potatoes Catering; and complimentary beverages from Karlsson's Vodka—which offered Swedish Mules and a savory martini—and ice-cold Bud Light Platinum.
The gallery was rocked by beats from DJ Stanley Frank (Vienetta Discotheque), and guests were able to take away terrific custom T-shirts from the live printing station overseen by Anthem Screen Printing.
