The 2018 Fundraising Gala hosted by The Skating Club of San Francisco (SCSF) is a celebration of Bay Area champions. We are honoring the 30th year of Brian Boitano’s Olympic Gold Medal, and he will be the guest of honor. We also are honoring the 20th anniversary of Brian’s Youth Skate Foundation and the 20th anniversary of the Yerba Buena Ice Skating & Bowling Center and its partnership with the SCSF. Charlie Tickner, Olympic and World medalist will be the Master of Ceremonies for the evening.
The Gala is a benefit for our competitive skaters and teams to defray their training and competition costs. All proceeds will go directly to the Bill and Laurie Hickox Memorial Fund.
It’s been a tremendous year for Bay Area skating as we celebrate our first Olympian from the SCSF, Vincent Zhou, the 2018 US Men’s Bronze Medalist, and the youngest 2018 Olympian to compete in PyeongChang, South Korea. Vincent will headline the show with all of the Team USA members, national medalists and competitors from the SCSF. Look for performances from Dinh Tran, Sarah Feng and her partner TJ Neiman, and Kate Wang. World Junior and US Junior Dance Champions Anthony Ponomarenko and his partner Christina Carriera will be with us. There also will be a special guest performance by the 2018 US Junior Champion Alysa Liu. Our SCSF award-winning teams, Theater on Ice and the Tremors will be there to show their new programs.
Most of all we will be celebrating the joy of skating from the beginner, recreational and accomplished, from the toddler to the adult. The event will begin with a reception of savory and sweet appetizers, beverages, and a meet-and-greet with our athletes. Come join the fun!
