Table Captains are our best resource for making the 2016 HRC San Francisco Bay Area Gala Dinner an amazing experience! Table Captains are the heart of the dinner's attendance. Each Table Captain strives to fill a table of 10, creating their own guest list and spending an inspirational evening surrounded with friends and family. If you'd like to select the nine people who will sit at your table, just become a Table Captain. And Table Captains are not financially obligated to fill the table. As a “thank you” for helping to support the drive for equality, Table Captains are listed in Dinner advertisements, invitations and program books. If you'd like to learn more, email
