Enjoy an evening of elegance and fine dining while supporting the work of the American Psychiatric Foundation.
While in San Francisco, spend an evening with your colleagues in one of the city’s most exclusive locations, known for its world-famous art and architecture—the City Club of San Francisco.
This is the site of this year’s American Psychiatric Foundation annual benefit, which will be held on Saturday May 18, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Guests will enjoy live music, delicious food, and the opportunity to meet and mingle.
Mexican artist Diego Rivera created his first U.S. fresco on the wall and ceiling of the grand stairwell. The large figure represents California, for whom the state is named.
The City Club is housed in the Stock Exchange Tower, which opened in 1930 as offices of the brokers who worked “on the floor” of the adjacent San Francisco Stock Exchange. In 1931, Mexican artist Diego Rivera painted a fresco in the grand Staircase—it’s a popular stop for tourists (see photo).
The venue is decorated in the Art Deco style. Evening views of the San Francisco skyline from the heart of the Financial District await guests, as does an evening of mingling with friends and colleagues and dining treats.
Additionally, guests will be able to view the presentation of the Awards for Advancing Minority Mental Health. Since 2003, the foundation has been presenting psychiatrists, mental health programs and organizations, and other health professionals with awards to recognize innovative and supportive efforts that have increased awareness of mental illness in underserved minority communities, the need for early recognition of mental illness, the availability of treatment and how to access it, and the cultural barriers to treatment.
The American Psychiatric Foundation is the philanthropic and educational arm of APA and supports a variety of programs that educate the public about mental illness and its treatment and contribute to the scientific base of psychiatric practice and policy.
Tickets may be purchased at the American Psychiatric Foundation’s Web site at http://www.psychfoundation.org. The price is $125 until May 1, $150 thereafter. ■
