Suggestions for a location for fundraiser in San Francisco?

Asked by joshbc (17points) April 1st, 2010

I’m organizing a fundraiser for the environmental nonprofit I work for that will be held in late June. We’ll probably have around 125 people there or so. Because we’re a nonprofit, we’re definitely operating on a tight budget. Anyone have suggestions? Was thinking of trying out some restaurants perhaps? We want it to be fairly classy, so no dive bars.

Tight budget for 125 people and fine dining in SF: Best of luck to to you. I’d start preparing for disappointment now. Fine dining in SF is not cheap. Not at all.
Finding a place for 125 people means you’re renting out a hall or a pub for the night. Catering is a must because individual orders will get astronomical.

what do you need the space to do for you?
– kitchen
– av/tech (projector, dj booth, etc.)
– tables/chairs
– parking/muni

kitchen, tables and chairs, but less worried about parking or av/tech

Some churches and private schools will rent space. Depending on their policies you may have to hire them to do any catering.

you might try community centers there are several shiny new ones and the rates are reasonable:
if you call 415.831.5500 they can help you narrow the search, tell them kitchen, tables/chairs, # of attendees, and preferred neighborhood – they’ll hook you up.

A liberal fundraiser in San Fransisco? I can’t imagine…
