Thursday, February 7, 2013 at 6:00 PM (PST)
San Francisco, CA
Join us for a fundraising event to raise $5,000 for the launch of Girls on the Run (GOTR) at George R. Moscone Elementary School. When we reach our $5,000 goal, we will be able to provide 16 girls the opportunity to participate in the GOTR program at no cost for the entire 10 week season.
We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than rolling back the clock to the fabulous 90s. This rockin’ party will include:
- DJ Razo spinning the hottest hits from the 90s.
- Full bar and free snacks
- Pre-order tickets now and get up to 2 free drink tickets (while supplies last)
- Silent auction including San Francisco Giants tickets, Golden State Warrior tickets, SF Bay Club membership, Jambox, and more.

When & Where
Girls on the Run of the Bay Area- Associate Board
Girls on the Run of the Bay Area provides an innovative running program for girls ages 8 to 13 that uses experiential learning to teach very specific and well-defined social and personal skills.
Girls on the Run provides a safe environment where girls can express themselves, build confidence, and learn from each other. We believe it is critical to reach girls at an early age in order to teach them these important life lessons and to prevent at-risk behavior such as eating disorders, substance abuse, depression, obesity, and adolescent pregnancies.
