The League of the San Francisco Consular Corps (LSFCC), in collaboration with The San Francisco Consular Corps, will be hosting its annual fundraising event as a Consular Gala on Wednesday, June 5, 2013 at the Mark Hopkins InterContinental hotel in San Francisco. Emmy Award-winning co-Anchor for ABC7 News, Cheryl Jennings, will be the Mistress of Ceremony for the evening.
The League of the San Francisco Consular Corps (LSFCC) is a non-profit, apolitical, non-partisan 501-(C)(3) tax-deductible organization. Founded in 1989 as the Ladies of the San Francisco Consular Corps, it was re-named in 2012. Forty-one countries are now represented in the current membership of 67 spouses and partners of members of The San Francisco Consular Corps and retired diplomats. Members also include a group of Bay Area residents who serve on the US Support Committee. The mission of the LSFCC is to build deep friendships among members through social, cultural and intellectual exchanges, and to engage, serve and support Bay Area charities through philanthropy.
Also in support of this event, the LSFCC is honored to have as distinguished members of the Honorary Gala Committee US Senator Dianne Feinstein, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, Lieutenant Governor of California Gavin Newsom, San Francisco Mayor Edwin M. Lee, The Honorable Willie L. Brown Jr., Board President and Supervisor David Chiu, Dean of The San Francisco Consular Corps Ambassador Carlos Félix Corona, and Chief of Protocol Charlotte Mailliard Shultz.
Together with the Honorary Gala Committee, I invite you to show your support for the continuous philanthropic efforts of the LSFCC by reserving your seats today.

We will be happy to forward questions to Julie Chin, President of the League, and wife of Consul-General Chin Hock Seng.
This inaugural Consular Gala promises to be not only a memorable event for LSFCC members and their friends to have fun at, but it will also serve to bring together members of the international and local communities including prominent business-people and senior State and City officials. Besides ample opportunities to network, your presence and support will directly benefit local charities.
