Benefit Concert — Worlds Together 11-8-2003

Share

An evening to celebrate collaborations and connections:

Saturday, November 8th 2003
Fillmore Auditorium
San Francisco, CA

Proceeds from this benefit will support art and music programs for youth

<p></p>The Bill Graham Foundation and Rex Foundation share long-standing support of art and music programs. Appreciating our common scope and mission in these areas and desire to bring our wonderful communities together, we created Worlds Together. Tonight, multiple worlds connect – music across a range of cultural genres, food with international influence, and friends who have come as fans of the music and our organizations. We are in the midst of challenging times, with global unrest and economic instability. So often, the mainstream news intensifies worry and differences. Tonight, however, we celebrate the joy of bringing all our worlds together to have fun, make new connections and support much-needed art and music programs for youth. This is our opportunity to demonstrate the positive effects of collaboration to generate good will and contribute to the greater community.

Thank you for being part of this special evening. Have a wonderful time.
