Support Seniors at Curry Senior Center

No act of generosity is too small to make a difference, especially when it comes to promoting wellness, dignity and independence to our seniors. Curry is an oasis of care for over 2,000 seniors annually in their own neighborhood, providing nutritious meals, housing, case management, primary health care, mental and behavioral healthcare, socialization programs, home visits and meals for homebound seniors, and much more.

The Board of Directors and staff cordially invite you to a festive evening celebrating 48 years of providing comprehensive services to isolated, low-income and homeless seniors in the heart of the city.

This year's theme is Our Stars of the Silver Screen!

Join us for a Hollywood-inspired night of glitz and glamour.

Our auction and reception will be held in the beautiful Garden Court at the Palace Hotel.

Curry Senior Center's Annual Gala

Palace Hotel, Garden Court Reception

Silent Auction, Networking and Evening Program: 6 pm - 9 pm

After Party: 9 pm - 12 am

The celebration will feature: delicious hors d'oeuvres and libations, live music, a three-course dinner and an exhilarating live auction presented by Curry Board Member and famous Bay Area news personality, Diane Dwyer, along with many wonderful silent auction items and special VIP guests.

A primary goal of the Helping Hands Healing Hearts Gala is to honor those who have made our community stronger and healthier through their efforts. We do this annually with three awards named after historic and iconic change-makers for Curry Senior Center:



The Dr. Francis J. Curry Award - Dr. Carla Perissinotto is Associate Chief for Geriatrics Clinical Programs at UCSF, where she oversees and develops all inpatient and outpatient Geriatrics clinical programs, including Care at Home. Dr. Perissinotto's research focuses on the health effects of loneliness, and she is interested in programs that address loneliness and isolation. She has been a critical advisor for Curry's 5-year pilot program "Addressing the Needs of Isolated Older Adults" and helped in the continuation of the program.


The Joseph Mignola, Jr. Award - In 1993, Pacific Union real estate agents in San Francisco created the Community Fund. After Compass bought Pacific Union in 2018, it continued raising money for non-profits under the Compass Community Fund. This fund distributes grants to local non-profits serving San Francisco's neediest neighbors. The Community Fund has been a dedicated partner in supporting Curry Senior Center for over 20 years.


The Vera Haile Dalenberg Award - Saint Anthony's Client Safety Services (CSS) monitors the safety of Saint Anthony's programs and outside organizations by providing on the ground response to increase safety in the Tenderloin and similar communities. By using a trauma-informed perspective, CSS staff have successfully built relationships with the communities it serves. The team de-escalates behaviors and risks with compassion and care. The CSS team is visibly present on many blocks in the Civic Center 7 days per week, most prominently in front of both Saint Anthony's and Curry Senior Center.
