San Francisco Cornerstone Event


Point Foundation held its annual San Francisco Cornerstone at the St. Francis Yacht Club on Thursday, May 30th. Nearly 150 guests enjoyed appetizers, cocktails from 42Below and Wet Woody’s and the sweeping views of the Golden Gate Bridge. Guests heard from Point Alumna Andrea Knittel and Point Scholars Ved Chirayath and Nick Orozco who shared their compelling stories about their experiences and heard from Sarah Biscarra-Dilley, Nicole Opper and Jeff Sheng who participated in a question and answer session for those newly introduced to Point Foundation.

Under the direction of Point Foundation's Founding Director, John Pence and Point Trustees and Alumni Angela Clements and John Downey, the Host Committee raised over $62,000! Special thanks goes to all of our event sponsors and host committee for another successful Point Cornerstone event!
