Your SFFR Week (10/1-10/8)

10/03/2018, 7:15pm PDT
By Liem Nguyen

Welcome to 2018! Here is your weekly dose of all things FrontRunners:

Thanks/Recap From Last Week:
 The SFFR had a closed board meeting last Monday. We concluded that it will be an exciting home stretch to finish! There are plenty of events to look forward to. 

1) Vote, Vote, Vote! We would love to hear from you!
Starting now and until December 1st, there will be 3 different voting or nomination periods. We have End of the Year Awards & Feedback, PRIDE RUN Beneficiaries, and the 2019 Board Elections. To make it easier for everyone, we will break it up into three periods. The time period now until 10/27 is to nominate your fellow members for the coveted end of the year awards and give us your feedback of our organization.

Please participate as the data collected will be used to enhance your experience with SFFR. 

Please check your email to give us your feedback and cast your nomination. 

2) Little Black Dress Run- October 6 @ 9am.
The Annual Little Black Dress run or LBD which began in 1999 is here again giving you the opportunity to stride through the park in your swankiest, slinkiest, snazziest, skimpiest, sassiest or sluttiest little black dress or in any way you want to make a fashion statement. After strutting through the park for about 2 miles we'll sashay over to the catwalk for judging and prizes hosted by Chuck Louden and Reggie Snowden as well as a bagel brunch.  Regular Saturday runs will also take place for those not inclined to seek the inner RuPaul.

If you don't have time to go shopping, contact Bob at and he will bring some extra dresses.  Meanwhile watch the video for ideas and accessories.

3) Beach Day @ Dolores Park w/ the Tsunamis- 10/7 @ 12pm-4pm 
You know the drill! We will be stationed near the Gay Beach at Dolores park this Sunday. It will be a beautiful day. We will have the LGBT swimming group as our special guest. Come meet our aerobic brothers and sisters!

4) "LOVE SIMON" October Movie Night - October 12 @ 7pm
Food: 7pm; Pizza, BYOB
Movie: 8pm
Description: Everyone deserves a great love story, but for 17-year-old Simon Spier, it's a little more complicated. He hasn't told his family or friends that he's gay, and he doesn't know the identity of the anonymous classmate that he's fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying and life-changing.

3) Homeless Connect Volunteer Opportunity- 10/24, 2 shifts 10am- 1pm & NOON- 3pm
100 service providers are in a convention style format at Bill Graham Auditorium.    This “one stop shop” model provides many services that could not otherwise so easily be accessed.

The most needed role is that of  of "guide."  The clients register and select the type of services needed on a form.  You meet the client with their  form in hand and help them find the way through the maze of vendors to that service which is most important to them.  Or another role would be to volunteer at a specific service provider.  You might work in the food pantry area handing bags of food.  You might work at the cafe making sure that everybody who wants to eat gets fed.  You might work in registering clients as they enter the auditorium.  Click HERE for more information.
