The Coalition on Homelessness is gearing up for the much-anticipated 17th annual Art Auction, an event that channels the creative energies of local artists to raise funds to end poverty and homelessness in San Francisco. Under the tag line “Transforming Art into Action • Resisting Homelessness for 30 Years”, the organization will be celebrating 30 years of successful advocacy that found housing for hundreds of homeless families, kept SFPD from adopting Tasers, supported the livelihood of 250 Street Sheet vendors, and pushed San Francisco’s criminalization of homeless people into international discourse.
When: Thursday, September 14th from 5:30pm–10:00 pm
Where: SOMArts Cultural Center, 934 Brannan St., San Francisco, CA 94103
Cost: Tickets start at $40 (No one will be turned away for lack of funds). Tickets can be purchased at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2965691
We will be celebrating and raising money for this very special organization at our 17th annual Art Auction fundraiser held at SOMArts in San Francisco. The event has something to offer everyone! Bid on beautiful work by over 150 local artists in our live and silent auctions, enter to win exciting raffle prizes, enjoy a complimentary dinner, and visit the open wine and beer bar.
This year we are excited to announce that Antique Naked Soul will be performing live, so get ready to come out and groove to this sweet music. All vocal super group Antique Naked Soul is transforming the a cappella world, taking the listener on a journey through time by creating and remixing Black American liberation music through beatboxing and live looping.
The Coalition on Homelessness is a grassroots social justice organization dedicated to ending homelessness and its social, political, and economic causes. Our bottom-up organizing model ensures the voices of some of the most disenfranchised San Franciscans lead the fight against homelessness. This has been and continues to be an incredible journey, full of victories, despite our many setbacks. Please join us to commemorate the incredible history and promising future of the Coalition on Homelessness.
