San Francisco's Annual Interfaith Homeless Memorial Service

Thursday, December 18th  4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Meet at 121 Golden Gate Avenue,  March to Civic Center Plaza

The winter solstice marks the first day of winter and the longest night of the year. On or near this day, cities across the country remember and honor the members of their communities who died while homeless. San Francisco will mark National Homeless Person’s Memorial Day with an interfaith memorial featuring a reading of the names of homeless San Franciscans who have died, a candlelight vigil, and words of hope and inspiration from faith leaders.

We invite you to participate in this event with St. Anthony’s to honor the lives and the memories of our deceased homeless brothers and sisters. We will gather as a group at our Dining Room (121 Golden Gate Avenue) at 4:30pm. We will have a brief program. Then we will march to Civic Center for the vigil.

Penny Pitch

37th Annual Penny Pitch to benefit St. Anthony's

When: Friday, May 2, 2014 @ 12pm

Where: MoMo's Restaurant - 760 2nd Street

Year after year, this team competition brings together a great cast of characters for a common good: to feed hungry San Franciscans. What began back in 1977 as a friendly wager between two watering holes has become a cherished San Francisco tradition and raised over $1 million for St. Anthony Foundation.

Last year, with fantastic support from our sponsors, vendors, and giants in the community, the event raised over $78,000 for St. Anthony's. Please join us for what promises to be another spectacular afternoon pitching pennies to raise dollars for the poor in San Francisco. 

If you would like information on sponsorships or registering a team, please visit or contact Kathryn Murphy, Events Manager, at
