Bay Area Dinner 2014



Can one person change the world?

Every day, urban youth in America’s inner cities and villagers in some of the poorest countries on the planet are stepping up to prove that the answer to that question is a resounding YES!

At the 2014 buildOn Bay Area Dinner you will hear the incredible stories of people overcoming adversity through education, you will talk with courageous students who are shaping their communities through service, and you will join the generous community of individuals who are supporting this powerful work.

Join us on Friday, June 6th at the Westin St. Francis in downtown San Francisco and be inspired by the knowledge that each of us has the power to change the world!

We are expecting over 500 people, which will include prominent individuals and corporate sponsors from around the Bay Area. The event will begin at 6pm with cocktails and a silent auction.

Dinner and the evening’s program will begin at 7:45pm with our Mistress of Ceremonies, Diane Dwyer, Weekend Anchor for NBC Bay Area News.

Please join us on June 6th for an unforgettable evening!
