WNP Gala 2022!

Western Neighborhoods Project Annual Fundraising Gala

Join us for a celebration of all things Outside Lands at our annual fundraising benefiting Western Neighborhoods Project - May 15th @ The Presidio Clubhouse.
We're thrilled to FINALLY be able to hold our biggest party of the year and we're doing it in style! To commemorate the 50th anniversary of its closing, our 2022 gala will have a Playland-at-the-Beach theme. We'll provide passed appetizers and a hearty meal, complimentary wine, and of course all kinds of entertainment. You won't want to miss this special evening where you can greet neighbors and make new friends, maybe see old classmates, and even spot some local history "celebrities."
We hope you'll join us on Sunday, May 15th at 6:00pm at The Clubhouse at Presidio Golf Club. Early bird tickets, which are $175 each, will be on sale until March 31st. Tickets purchased after the early bird window has closed will pay $225 each. All tickets purchased (and not previously refunded) for our cancelled gala in 2020 will be honored at this event.
Please register today and email Executive Director Nicole Meldahl if you or your company are interested in sponsoring a table or would like to make a donation for our silent auction.
