Come Celebrate San Francisco Values and our Prop. 8 victory on Friday, March 9, 2012 at BALIF's 32nd Annual Gala.

This year, BALIF returns to SFMOMA for our annual Gala. Join 600+ attorneys, judges, lawmakers, in-house counsel, and law students for one of SF's biggest and most star-studded parties.

  • Sip mixologist cocktails.
  • Tour SFMOMA art galleries.
  • Catch-up with old friends and swap numbers with new ones.
  • Gourmet food stations, each showcasing a different type of SF cuisine.
  • No stuffy assigned table seating; mix and mingle throughout the night.


We're honoring the Transgender Law Center with the Community Service Award, and Morrison & Foerster LLP and Lambda Legal (counsel for Karen Golinski) with the Legal Service Award.


The Gala doors open at SFMOMA at 7 pm for General Admission and 6 pm for those attending the VIP reception. Can't wait for the party to get started? Take-off work early and pre-party with your rock star BALIF colleagues at not one, but three star-studded venues:


John Colins Lounge. 138 Minna Street (right around the corner from SFMOMA)
$2 discount on all cocktails and $1 discount on beers and wines


The Press Club. 20 Yerba Buena Lane
$3 discount on beers and happy hour whites and reds by the glass
