Thank you for tuning into the Tribute Celebration virtual broadcast on Saturday, September 18. Due to the overwhelming show of support for the vital programs and services of San Francisco AIDS Foundation, we raised over $492,000! 

On behalf of SFAF staff, board of directors, volunteers, and the 25,000 clients we serve each year, thank you. We look forward to leveraging these funds to address the disparities among those most affected by HIV. If you would like to contribute to these efforts, you can donate here

Event Update

In response to the rising cases of COVID-19 in the Bay Area, and in an effort to ensure the safety of our guests, we have made the decision to transition this event to a fully virtual one. Fear not, the party will go on!

We are committed to ensuring that you have a fabulous evening on Saturday, September 18, no matter where you celebrate. Buy a Tribute-at-Home pass and we’ll ship goodies right to your door to help you celebrate. The program will be live-streamed and accessed through the virtual event platform, which also includes access to the virtual red carpet and silent auction.

Sometimes the best parties are the ones you can spend in your sweatpants!
