'Tis the season to join chanteuse Veronica Klaus, drag stars Miss Rahni and Ambrosia Salad for a champagne reception to kick-off the San Francisco LGBT Center's Soiree 8 gala. Bubbly and bites will be served on Tue. Nov 17, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. as we celebrate the season of sharing in anticipation of the Center's fundraising gala next spring. All are invited to this reception at the Center, 1800 Market Street in San Francisco. There is no fee to attend, however a request for donations will be made during the evening. And be sure to save Sat. April 10 for the Center's 8th Soiree gala!

San Francisco's LGBT Community Center is pleased to kick off its annual Soiree with this teaser reception, featuring top flight performers dedicated to providing a good time. Headlining the evening is Veronica Klaus, the critically acclaimed singer who was named "Best Chanteuse" by the SF Bay Guardian for her jazz, blues and cabaret repertoire.

Rebecca Rolfe, executive director of the Center, stresses that the joyous reception also is an opportunity for revelers to learn the bigger picture of how the Center continues to celebrate, connect and fiercely advocate for the LGBT community. Rolfe also notes that "those who attend on Nov. 17 will get an early, insider scoop on some juicy news for April's Soiree 8."

The reception marks the kick-off of months of activities to plan the Center's annual fundraising gala, Soiree, which will be held on Sat. April 10 at Terra Art Gallery in San Francisco. Last year's Soiree was attended by more than 700 revelers, including "Milk" screenwriter Lance Dustin Black. This year, Supervisor David Campos and Human Rights Commission executive director Theresa Sparks are honorary chairs of the Soiree.
