GLIDE Annual Holiday Jam: Love Overcomes @ The Masonic
Nov 29 @ 5:30 pm – 11:00 pm

2_jhill2GLIDE Annual Holiday Jam: Love Overcomes

A celebration of hope and unconditional love, two ingredients that can overcome violence, bigotry, racism, environmental disasters, and divisiveness.

Special performances include:

  • Soulful and powerful singer and songwriter Judith Hill
  • Grammy award-winning singer, songwriter, and producer Valerie Simpson
  • Grammy-nominated, soul singing sensation, model, and Empire actress, V. Bozeman
  • Voice percussionist and female beat-boxing champion Butterscotch
  • World-renowned GLIDE Ensemble and The Change Band

Funds raised will help the GLIDE Daily Free Meals program and more services that help marginalized members of our community.

This year’s benefit will feature a special tribute honoring Amy Errett for her dedicated service and visionary leadership as Chairperson of GLIDE’s Board of Trustees for 22 years. Amy has been a major influence in supporting GLIDE’s co-founders, Janice Mirikitani and Reverend Cecil Williams, its board and executive staff, and the fiscal robustness that has helped GLIDE become a major human services provider and spiritual force in this city.

In addition to the tribute to Amy Errett, GLIDE welcomes new Board Chair Kaye Foster, new President and CEO Karen Hanrahan, and new Lead Pastor Rev. Dr. Jay Williams, who together will work with our Co-Founders, Executive Director and staff to take GLIDE into the future, embracing our values of unconditional love, acceptance, inclusion, and social justice.

Honorary co-chairs include Richard C. Blum and Senator Dianne Feinstein, Felicia and Ben Horowitz, Susan Lowenberg and Joyce Newstat; Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom and Jennifer Siebel Newsom; Eva and Bill Price; Jim and Liz Steyer; and Joyce Stupski.
