5th Annual Mighty Real Gala a Resounding Success

PRC is proud to announce the resounding success of its 5th annual Mighty Real Gala on Friday, November 5, 2021. Taking place at the beautiful Four Seasons Hotel and attracting nearly 350 guests, this incredible evening raised more than $425,000 for PRC’s essential services for San Francisco’s most vulnerable individuals.

The outpouring of support of this year’s Mighty Real Gala is a testament to this community’s commitment to helping San Francisco’s homeless and other vulnerable populations. It was an emotional evening for us all, and coming out of the pandemic, we all needed this.” shared PRC CEO Brett Andrews. 

Highlights of the evening included emotionally touching personal storytelling by Gala Chair and PRC Board Member Merredith Treaster, PRC client Joe Gorriceta, and Mayor London Breed. There was not a dry eye in the house. The festivities were ushered in by Master of Ceremonies extraordinaire Dale Johannes, who presided over an exciting live auction and Fund a Need, and the fabulously entertaining seven-piece band, Last Wave. Guests were also treated to award presentations of the Outstanding Corporate Partner Award to Tito’s Handmade Vodka, the Outstanding Community Partner Award to Bare Chest Calendar, the Vanguard Leadership Award to Honey Mahogany, and, accepted virtually, the Sylvester Community Pillar Award to Joel Grey. Between Tito’s specialty cocktails and ventures onto the open balcony overlooking Yerba Buena, guests took turns posing before the one-of-a-kind, mirrored, PRC step and repeat, painstakingly crafted for the occasion by PRC staff member Seth Abrahamson. It was a touching return to live events for all, and a touching tribute to those served by PRC’s services.
