Get ready to soak up the fun at the 25th Annual TNDC Pool Toss! Watch San Francisco luminaries get drenched for dollars! Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation’s splashiest event is at SF’s chic Phoenix Hotel/Chambers Eat + Drink on Wednesday, October 11. Notable Bay Area personalities belly flop, nose-dive, and cannonball into the pool to raise money for TNDC’s After- School Program. THE pool party of the year has raised nearly $5 million for TNDC youth and family programs. TNDC serves more than 4,100 of the lowest-income individuals in San Francisco’s Tenderloin and nearby neighborhoods.
In addition to wet and wacky fun, the festivities include hosted bars and tasty Bay Area bites from Twenty-Five Lusk, Brenda’s French Soul Food, Cumaica Coffee, Deerfield Ranch Winery, Kai Vodka, Farallon, and Jane on Larkin, just to name a few.
Bonhams auctioneer Aaron Bastian will lead the spirited auction while the burly and brawny lifeguards from Fitness SF will be rescue ready if the need arises. Pool Toss fave, The Fabulous Bud E. Luv Show, will be back again to entertain the crowd.
