DETAILS

Each year, Savor the Greenbelt brings together over 250 Bay Area philanthropists and thought leaders to celebrate our organization’s work on the pressing sustainability and growth issues facing the region today. The event benefits our work to preserve open space, safeguard the region’s farms and ranches, and advance smart growth solutions across the Bay Area.

In 2019 we’ll feature our work to address the impacts of climate change around the region.

PROGRAM

6:00 p.m. Reception
Savor local wine, hors-d’oeuvres, and views of the city at sunset from the Fairmont San Francisco’s beautiful rooftop garden.

7:00 p.m. Dinner and Auction
Enjoy an elegant dinner prepared by executive chef Oscar Gonzalez in the French Provincial-inspired Gold Room. In celebration of our work in the Bay Area, you’ll have the opportunity to bid on one-of-a-kind live auction experiences around the region.

Our 2019 Keynote Speaker Kate Gordon is a nationally recognized expert on the intersection of climate change, energy, and economic development. She serves as Director of the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research and Senior Advisor on Climate for Governor Gavin Newsom.

Before her role as the OPR Director, she was the Senior Advisor at the Henry M. Paulson Institute. While at the Institute, she worked to quantify the economic impacts of climate change on the U.S. economy and provided strategic support to their U.S. China CEO Council for Sustainable Urbanization. Kate has also served as the Vice President for Climate and Energy at the Center for the Next Generation and was the V.P. of Energy and Environment for the Center for American Progress.

With a career deeply rooted in climate, energy and economic work, Kate Gordon brings accomplished insight into our world’s biggest threat. We are thrilled to have her join us as the keynote speaker at this year’s Savor the Greenbelt.
