Become a Table Captain at the Gala
Table Captains are the backbone of ensuring a successful, well-attended dinner each year. As the official recruiters and promoters for the dinner, we partner with our Table Captains to help spread the word about the work of HRC in order to encourage friends and colleagues to purchase tickets to attend the dinner. Any individual, partners/couple, company, affinity group, or charity group can serve as a Table Captain.
Each table can seat a maximum of 10 guests. Contact us today to sign up to be a Table Captain, and start recruiting your friends and family to sit at your table!
IMPORTANT: Table Captains are NOT financially obligated to pre-purchase seats and there is NO penalty for not filling the table - just try your best!

I would like to personally invite you to participate in something really important to me and important to our community; I have signed up to be a table captain for the Human Rights Campaign 33rd Annual San Francisco Bay Area Gala on Saturday, October 14, 2017 at the Westin St. Francis on Union Square. If you’ve been to one of HRC’s dinners in the past, you know what a fun, inspiring, and empowering event it is, and I’m sure this year will also be great. As a table captain, I have committed to filling the 10 seats at the table, and would love to have you join us.
As you know, HRC is the country’s largest organization working for full equal rights for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community. The LGBTQ community is quickly mobilizing to respond to the actions of the current political climate. HRC is a critical player in Washington, DC and beyond. We must ensure that pro-LGBTQ candidates are successful to combat the promise to roll back many of our recent successes. There is a lot more information available at HRC’s website, www.hrc.org. This dinner is the largest single event locally to raise funds to support this work.
Please join us. Tickets to the San Francisco usually sell out by the end of September, so please let me know as soon as possible if you’ll be able to join me. Tickets start at $295 for early bird pricing if you purchase before 9/23/17. You can learn more and purchase your tickets at www.sfhrcgala.org. Please make sure to select me as your table captain during the check-out process.
Together we can make a difference in the lives of our friends, families, and communities. Let me know if you have any questions.
