San Francisco Heritage cordially invites you to consider sponsorship of our special 2024 gala “A Night Celebrating Japantown, the Fillmore, and the 50th Anniversary of Moving Victorians.”

On the evening of Thursday, September 5, 2024, we will commemorate the 50th anniversary of San Francisco Heritage’s successful project to save and relocate historic buildings for reuse by Western Addition residents. In 1974, eleven Victorian-era flats and houses were spared from demolition and in early-morning hours were towed west to new locations in the neighborhood. Restored and added in the National Register of Historic Places, all of the buildings still stand and continue to provide housing for dozens of San Franciscans.

After a 5-7 pm VIP networking reception with drinks and heavy appetizers in the War Memorial’s elegant Green Room, the evening will continue with a public big-screen show in the adjacent 800-seat Herbst Theater. Archival films and historical photos of the 1974 “house migration” will be featured with segments celebrating the cultural vitality, history, and resilience of the Japantown and the Fillmore neighborhoods.

Sponsorship benefits have been expanded for our 2024 fundraising gala. Bring clients, friends, and more of your team to enjoy the food and drink at the VIP reception and receive preferred seating for the big-screen show. Presenting sponsorship (“Van Ness Level”) offers 25 tickets as well as unprecedented visibility and recognition opportunities for this unique event.

“Gala ’24” sponsorship supports San Francisco Heritage’s nonprofit mission to preserve and enhance San Francisco’s unique architectural and cultural identity.
