I wanted to let you know that the Drug Policy Alliance will hold its
first major San Francisco fundraising event on Wednesday, Nov. 15,
5:30 - 7:30pm, at the City Club of San Francisco. The benefit
reception will honor three dear friends of the organization:
philanthropists and DPA supporters John Sperling (Apollo Group) and
George Zimmer (The Men's Wearhouse), and our own Marsha Rosenbaum.
We'll also celebrate the 10th anniversary of Prop 215 (medical
cannabis), the 10th anniversary of DPA in California, and the 5th
anniversary of Prop 36 (treatment instead of incarceration). Mayor
Gavin Newsom, Assemblyman Mark Leno, and Speaker Fabian Nunez will
co-chair the event, with both the Mayor and Assemblyman Leno planning
to attend.

Please visit the event website (http://www.drugpolicy.org/SF) to learn more
and to see the benefit committee list, which ranges from San
Francisco District Attorney Kamala D. Harris to writer Robert Scheer.

Leah Rorvig, working out of our San Francisco office, is in charge of
organizing the event. I'd be grateful for any assistance you can
provide, whether by attending, buying tickets and/or an ad, spreading
the word, providing names of folks in the Bay area for us to invite,
and so on. Please be in touch with Leah at lrorvig [at] drugpolicy.org or
call her at 415.921.4987 (DPA-SF) or 415.623.0676 (cell).

I have a feeling this is really going to be a remarkable couple of
hours. Please come if you can, and please spread the word.

Many thanks,

Ethan
