July 2016

Dear Fellow Harvard Alumni and Friends, 

Thank you for your interest and support of the Harvard Club of San Francisco.  I hope you are enjoying your summer.  You along with our club officers, board members, and numerous volunteers make HCSF a vibrant community for alumni throughout the Bay Area.  We also serve as a connection to the Harvard Alumni Association (HAA) in Cambridge and serve over 1500 members who enjoy the benefits of HCSF membership and connection to our local Harvard community.  We kicked off our new year in May with a sold-out annual dinner honoring Harvard '05 alum and Airbnb Co-Founder Nathan Blecharzyk as "Citizen of the Year".  We followed with two sold-out Global Networking Nights which has become a popular networking opportunity for many of our alumni and friends.  These events along with our annual Holiday party, Harvard-Yale game viewing party, and discount tickets to popular Tony Award winning shows gives us a rich and diverse set of events that bring together alumni from across the Harvard Community.  HCSF has now become one of the most active alumni clubs in the country organizing over 100 events each year for the past several years. We clearly hope there is something for everyone!

Our club is very active and more changes are on the way as we continue to seek ways to grow our value to the Harvard community.  We welcome not only your suggestions for activities or programs but also your membership and involvement as well.  Stay tuned!
