Each year, our chapter honors individuals from the San Francisco Bay Area
for their outstanding leadership in the areas of business, civil rights,
community relations, and education.

On *March 11, 2023*an important tradition will continue in San Francisco – our
18th Annual Golden Girls Hats and Gloves Tea. Approximately 300 guests will
be in attendance at the historic Fairmont Hotel San Francisco.

Our event recognizes phenomenal women and girls who positively impact their
community, personify self-esteem, self-respect and continue to be an
inspiration to girls everywhere.

In true High Tea style, guests will arrive in high fashion and dine on an
assortment of Finger Sandwiches, Petit Fours, Scones and Tea. This
celebration will recognize several phenomenal women and one “Golden Girl” for
their contributions that have enriched all of our lives and distinguished
themselves within our communities. Their work exemplifies our organization’s
vision as a force for gender equity, our mission of advocating leadership
development and our values of living and modeling are critical to the
success of women and girls of color.

Proceeds from this fundraiser will be used to fund Chapter programming for
over 2,000 Women and Girls of Color who participate in our main programs:
