Hump Days With Harvey: Cocktails For a Cause


When: Wednesday, October 25 at 6 PM - 9 PM                                                                                          Where: Virgil's Sea Room at 3152 Mission Street

The Harvey Milk LGBT Democratic Club will be hosting a special Hump Days with Harvey event this month with Virgil's Cocktails For a Cause. We are excited to team up with one of our favorite watering holes in SF to raise money for UndocuFund.

UndocuFund was launched by a coalition of immigrant service providers and advocates to bring assistance to undocumented residents and workers who were displaced and otherwise affected by the fires in Northern California. 100% of what we raise and subsequently donate to UndocuFund will go to the fire victims to provide assistance paying for basic needs, rent, groceries, etc.

Virgil's will be creating a specialty cocktail for our Happy Hour and donating a portion of those sales. We will also be collecting a sliding scale donation at the door but no one turned away for lack of funds.

Join us for an early evening of community gathering, cocktails and fundraising in the beautiful Mission district. Please RSVP on Facebook here.

Believing that LGBT representation was essential to securing rights for our community, Harvey Milk founded our club in 1976 to politically mobilize San Francisco’s queer progressives.

For 41 years, the Harvey Milk Club has continued Harvey's legacy of political activism, electoral organizing, and building power across communities and issues in San Francisco. Our political agenda for 2017 includes: resistance against the current regime; police accountability, reform and transparency; Fighting for Trans lives; solidarity with the#BlackLivesMatter movement; Preserving our Sanctuary city; housing affordability; addressing the homelessness crisis; fighting for economic, social and environmental justice; and working with progressive elected officials to ensure our voices are heard and counted.. // //
