We are excited to announce that our annual community party and fundraiser will be held at the beautifully designed AirBnB HQ in downtown San Francisco on December 5th! Expect the same fun, celebratory atmosphere along with a silent auction. New for this year is a Girls Leading Girls panel discussion about why it is important for girls to play sports, why we need to advocate for equal play for girls, and how we can continue to use sports/soccer specifically as a platform for positive social change.
Panelists include Leslie Osborne- former USWNT & World Cup player, co-founder of Sweat Cosmetics, and Studio Analyst for Fox Sports. As well as Ann Kletz, co-founder & CEO of Goal Five apparel and former Division I Harvard University women's soccer player. All ages welcome, and feel free to bring guests!
Access to panel of local women change makers- Leslie Osborne & Ann Kletz, moderated by our junior board representatives
All-you-can-eat style dinner prepared by onsite chefs
Optional wristband for unlimited beer and wine for adults ages 21+
Activities for kids ages 7+
Amazing silent auction items up for bid including a weekend getaway in Tahoe, two rounds of Golf at the Olympic Club, Outdoor Voices gift card, and more!
