2023 ANNUAL Gala
Save the Date
In the fall The Commonwealth Club will host the 35th Annual Distinguished Citizens Award Gala and the 120th anniversary of the Club.
The annual gala is the Club’s most important fundraising event of the year and is the philanthropic community’s opportunity to support its civic and nonpartisan mission.
The evening will be a celebratory and multifaceted awards ceremony and gala party! At one of San Francisco’s most spectacular venues—our very own beautiful headquarters on The Embarcadero.
