Wet, wild and wacky fun returns for the 24th Annual Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation’s (TNDC) Pool Toss taking place at San Francisco’s hip Phoenix Hotel/Chambers Eat + Drink on Tuesday, October 18, 2016. Where else can you pay for the privilege of tossing your favorite Bay Area bigwig into a swimming pool all while raising funds for kids and families in San Francisco’s Tenderloin? This splashy, high-energy, only-in-San-Francisco soiree is known as the pool party of the year and, over the years, has raised more than $4 million for TNDC youth and family programs like the Tenderloin After-School Program (TASP). TNDC serves more than 3,600 of the lowest-income individuals in San Francisco’s Tenderloin and nearby neighborhoods.
This year’s TNDC Pool Toss will be co-hosted by Brian Copeland, Comedian, Writer, TV & Radio Host, and Radio Personality and Commentator Nikki Medoro.
