“Bringing Down the House”
GLIDE’s Annual Holiday Festival Features a Night of Comedy at
the San Francisco Warfield Theatre

Honorary Co-Chairs Richard C. Blum, Janice Mirikitani,
California First Lady Maria Shriver, Rev. Cecil Williams and Robin Williams


WHAT:
It’s a night of laughter, celebration and generosity at “Bringing Down the House,” GLIDE’s Annual Holiday Festival co-chaired by Richard C. Blum, Janice Mirikitani, California First Lady Maria Shriver, Rev. Cecil Williams and Robin Williams on Thursday, December 2 at San Francisco’s Warfield Theatre. The evening festivities will feature a host of comedians, the GLIDE Ensemble and Change Band and other hilarious surprise guests to benefit Mo’s Kitchen and GLIDE’s programs.

Each year, GLIDE’s Annual Holiday Festival raises funds for Mo’s Kitchen and GLIDE’s programs. Mo’s Kitchen is an integral part of how GLIDE helps San Francisco’s poorest residents by serving up nearly one million meals per year.

"It's time for us to all come together and share a good laugh -- and remember how to bring joy to each other this holiday season -- to our family, our friends and those less fortunate," said Rev. Cecil Williams, GLIDE’s Founder and Minister of Liberation. "We are thankful to our talented comedians and entertainers who remind us to keep smiling, who buoy our spirits so we can help others."

“Bringing Down the House” will feature the comedic talents of W. Kamau Bell, Selene Luna, Johnny Steele and other hilarious surprise guests. Musical entertainment will be provided by the GLIDE Ensemble and Change Band. Tickets range from $65 to $500 with sponsorships ranging from $5,000 - $100,000. Individual tickets are available at Ticketmaster and through GLIDE.org.
