By Liem Nguyen

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

Thanks/Recap From Last Week:
 Thank you Martin Brook for organizing the special Lafayette brunch for the SFFR members on Sunday. 

1) Annual Halloween Party - 415 Hill St, SF- 10/27 @7pm-9pm
Bob and Chris will host our Annual Halloween party at their home at 415 Hill St. Prizes will be awarded for Best and Most Original costume. Light snacks, BYOB. After 9PM, attendees can head out to other celebrations. Cost is free. Details and Videos (for costume ideas) can be found on the SFFR calendar.

2) Movie Night by Fred Fox - Man in an Orange Shirt- 11/2 @7pm
Gather: 7pm
Food: Sandwich Wraps, Please BYOB
Movie: 8pm  RSVP by noon Nov 1 via text 415-377-7605
Movie Title: Man in an Orange Shirt
Description: Man in an Orange Shirt features two separate yet interwoven stories: Part 1 tells of the obstacles that Western society is putting into the love relationship of the two veterans Michael and Thomas in the immediate post-war period. Part 2 describes the trials and tribulations of 21st century partnerships, using the example of Michael's grandson. The stories are linked by Flora, as Michael's grieving wife and Adam's grandmother, whose unrequited love for Michael and conservative education results in a hateful response to Adam's coming-out. See calendar link for apt entry details.

3) 2019 PRIDE Run Beneficiary Nominations
The time has come to select our beneficiary for the 2019 Pride Run! We're opening up nominations to all members this week, with a goal of getting down to the final list next weekend. On Saturday, 10/27, we will have representatives from the final list come out and present at second circle, after the Saturday run. After that, we will open up voting to the whole group and finalize the beneficiary by mid-November so we can get started on fundraising for next year's run.

To nominate an organization, just fill out the survey in the link below. Note that only complete submissions will be considered.
Looking forward to learning more about the great organizations you want to support!

Events Supported by SFFR

1) 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.
