      SAN FRANCISCO FLEET WEEK ASSOCIATION
      FUND RAISER AND CABARET!
       
      As many of you know, San Francisco Fleet Week 2010 took on  new mission, headed up by MajGen Mike Myatt, President and CEO of The Marines’ Memorial Association and Club here in San Francisco, and supported by an entirely new Board of Directors.
       
      The Fleet Week that most of the Bay Area knows has always focused on the annual Air Show, featuring the remarkable Blue Angels, along with a host of other air acrobatic talent. The Parade of Ships is always breathtaking, and once the ships parade under the Golden Gate Bridge and are lined up along the San Francisco Waterfront, the public is offered the opportunity to tour these active military vessels . .. seeing, touching, feeling where their tax dollars are going.
       
      However 2011 brought a new element to San Francisco’s Fleet Week . . .for, honorary co-chairs the Honorable George Shultz and Senator Diane Feinstein along with then SF Mayor Gavin Newsom were and are very concerned about the Bay Area’s preparedness for the next big earthquake . . and feel that it is not a matter of IF, but WHEN . . .in brainstorming as to how better prepare, they realized that whenever there has been a natural disaster on this globe of ours, it has been the US Military who have been the first responders . .  to wit, Haiti, New Orleans, Pakistan, and now Japan.  And what better way to integrate and showcase the capabilities of the US Military than in conjunction with SF Fleet Week.
       
      Hence was born the 2010 SFFW ambitious new mission: to showcase the military’s proven capabilities for providing Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Response (HADR).
       
      2011 SFFW will continue with this mission, expanding it to include a Table Top exercise with the Hoover Institute, another Senior Leader’s Seminar (where we intend to present the findings from the Table Top exercise). . .and much more
      But all this takes money . . . . Lots of it! 
       
      And we are planning to Kick Off this year’s San Francisco Fleet Week with a really great Fund Raiser Event to be held on Monday, May 2nd at the Marines Memorial Club Theater in San Francisco . . the details for which are outlined below.
       
      We would love nothing more than to have our maritime partners and friends join us for this festive evening! The tickets are $95.00 each and include dinner, an open bar, a fantastic silent auction (two African Safaris, a trip to Paris . . and more!), the Cabaret, followed by a dessert buffet before you waddle off to your homes!
       
      The San Francisco Fleet Week Association is a 501 (C) (3) organization, and as such, relies on corporate sponsorship and public donations to fund this extraordinary event, with a small portion of funds coming from exhibit space, Air Show reserved seating and vendor sales.
       
      Now, you can easily book your tickets directly with the Marines Memorial Club Theater box office below using the provided link
