Folks in the Bay Area looking for a fun evening out? Stop by the Global Exchange offices in San Francisco for our annual Open House. We are celebrating 24 years of social change and activism on October 4, 6-10 pm, at 2017 Mission St., 2nd Floor, San Francisco, CA (16 & Mission BART).

With the presidential elections right around the corner the 2012 Open House will be a PAC (People Above Corporations) Super Party. It will be a wonderful evening with dancing, specialty cocktails, FREE food and a chance to meet and mingle with Global Exchange staff. And of course, we’ll be hosting our annual Prize Drawing. Don’t miss out on your chance to win a Reality Tour and to support our work. Tickets are just $10 or Six for $50.

Our Open House is for our members, supporters, and friends but all are invited to spend the evening with Global Exchange. Whether individuals or organizations, our staff has been inspired by the positivity from the community, surrounding this event. We welcome all to join our party for the people!

This year, we have some REALLY great prizes, thanks to the generosity of the Bay Area community.
