Cruise for a Cause is hosted by the San Francisco Housing Development Corporation (SFHDC) and produced by Velma Landers. The event will launch SFHDC’s Artists Housing Fund, an initiative dedicated to providing affordable housing and financial empowerment services to local artists that are struggling to hold on to their homes and livelihoods in San Francisco. Since 1988, SFHDC has provided affordable housing, financial empowerment, supportive services and economic development opportunities for San Francisco’s low- and moderate-income residents.
In addition to providing an unforgettable night of music and dancing, Cruise for a Cause will help launch San Francisco’s return to a culturally vibrant place where artists can afford to live and practice their crafts.
