About the Spinsters of San Francisco: Spinsters of San Francisco was founded on November 6, 1929. Patricia Tobin (Mrs. Sheldon Cooper) hosted the first meeting in the ballroom of her grandparents' home, the de Young house, at 1919 California Street. The Bachelors of San Francisco had already been formed, and the young women wanted to develop a sister organization. The first president was Harriet Brownell, who presided over the original membership of 35 young women.Spinsters of San Francisco have evolved into a community oriented social and philanthropic organization of up to 195 members. Non-profit by charter, the group is comprised of college educated, unmarried women who sponsor and raise funds each year for a designated local charity. In addition, the group hosts after work and evening cocktail parties, seasonal dances and three Charity Events for members and their guests. Traditionally, the members have also volunteered their time with local arts organizations, medical facilities and other philanthropic groups such as the Guardsmen.
