Blue Ribbon 2023 Celebration - October 27 - Julia Morgan Ballroom
Co-Chairs Jillian Manus & Rob Chesnut and P. Wayne Osborne & Gregory Price
October 27, 2023 ~ 6:00pm – 10:00pm

The Julia Morgan Ballroom, 465 California Street, San Francisco

Celebrating 50 years of service!

Join us in drawing inspiration from the roaring 1920s as we pave the way for change in the 2020s.

We welcome you to the Safe & Sound speakeasy where you will sip on your Tom Collins and dance the night away to some 1920s sounds, while we highlight the impact Safe & Sound has had in the community for the past 50 years!

With generous partners and donors by our side since 1973, Safe & Sound has helped strengthen families and build community. Starting as the San Francisco Child Abuse Center, and now a statewide leader on prevention and family wellness, we are proud of the work we have done for-and with- children and families.

Let’s shape the next 50 years of safe children and strong families…Together!

As part of our celebrations this year, we will honor a true advocate for children and families who has significantly contributed to the field of child abuse prevention, Katie Albright, with the Dr. Moses Grossman Award.

*Blue Ribbon: The Blue Ribbon name and/or symbol are used to show support of child abuse prevention. When the Blue Ribbon Event started 26 years ago, Safe & Sound chose the name as a way to honor the vision of a future free from child abuse and neglect.

Dr. Moses Grossman Award

As part of our celebrations, we will honor a true advocate for children and families who has significantly contributed to the field of child abuse prevention, Katie Albright, with the Dr. Moses Grossman Award.

With grace and dedication, Katie Albright has exemplified generosity in mind, body, and spirit making an incredible difference in the lives of children and families. In recognition of her significant contributions to the field, we will present Katie Albright with the Dr. Moses Grossman Award. Named after our founder, the Dr. Moses Grossman Award, which has only been given three times in our 50 year history, acknowledges extraordinary achievements in the field of child abuse prevention.

This event is not just about commemorating the past; it’s about looking ahead to a future where all children, families, and communities are safe, supported, and loved. Together, we will raise funds to support our continued mission, ensuring that our organization’s vital initiatives can positively impact lives for the next 50 years.
