The Commonwealth Club's 104th Anniversary and 19th Annual Distinguished Citizen Award Dinner is Thursday, Feb 22, 2007 at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco. Honorees and speakers include a blue-ribbon group of Green leaders.
Denis Hayes will be arriving in our PHEV. The $300/ticket attendees will get the message that we have real solutions to address global warming when they see that car and a Tesla Roadster as they make their way at the hotel's majestic front entrance.
The Commonwealth Club has had several PHEV-related events since 2003, and Sherry Boschert will give a talk based on her book, Plug-In Hybrids: The Cars that Will Recharge America at noon on Weds., Feb.28 (see http://www.commonwealthclub.org/mlf/).
Here's the Feb. 22 program, which is nearly sold out: http://www.commonwealthclub.org/features/annualdinner/19th
Each year, The Club honors individuals who have made significant and enduring contributions to the Bay Area and California community, and who embody the principles and values of The Commonwealth Club.
The Annual Dinner is also The Club's most significant fundraising event, raising funds to support its important nonprofit public forum mission throughout the year.
