    22nd Annual Dinner & Auction



    Our 22nd Annual Dinner & Auction will be back at the former Patio Español, now Dominic's SF at Unión Española at 2850 Alemany Boulevard right here in District 11.  Help the D11 Democratic Club celebrate their first quarter century! 

    It is with much emotion that we return to the former Patio Español, now Dominic's SF at Unión Española. That was our home for every year until the Pandemic. The good news is that the meals are outstanding. Members of the Executive Board tested the fare before signing on and it was delicious. The three meals to choose from are: 

    • New York Strip Steak, marinated in fresh herbs, garlic, and Worcestershire sauce for 24 hours and then expertly grilled.
    • Fresh Atlantic Salmon, baked until with a light Meunière butter sauce.
    • Vegetarian Eggplant Lasagna, tender grilled eggplant layered between gourmet flat pasta, Monterey Jack, Ricotta, and Mozzarella cheeses, with a traditional marinara sauce.

    Included with all dinners, is your choice of fruit punch or lemonade, fresh rolls & butter, a raspberry spring salad, a side of vegetables or pasta, and dessert. A no-host bar will be available. 

    Since the pandemic, prices have risen considerably and these price adjustments are reflected in our Dinner categories.  

    We feature an outstanding address by voter engagement expert, Heidi Sieck on how Democrats can win big on reproductive issues. We will also acknowledge our District 11 heroes, Brigitte Davila, Frances Hsieh, and Jason Leiva.  

    Our annual fundraiser accomplishes several objectives: it brings us all together and provides needed funds for the District 11 Democratic Club's voter education efforts. In this upcoming election, we will again ensure that every household in D11 has access to information on how to register, ballot deadlines, and locations for drop-off. In addition, we will host candidate forums and endorsement meetings. Purchasing anything from a table to a single dinner will help us achieve these goals. 


    As a bonus, the Patron level includes wine for your entire table. Purchases at the Patron, Supporter, Sponsor, and Friend levels will have a special mention in the program

    @Jesse Yang: Calling your neighbors dumb because they don’t agree with you is not the most effective route to a persuasive argument. We truly wish you had been at the endorsement meeting to raise your points (albeit in a more civil manner) Speaking for myself, I originally joined the D11 Dem Club in 2008, precisely because of the robust discussions and arguments put forth on matters coming before us as voters. We welcome your point of view.
  • Look out for Newsletter - Next meeting in April 2021


    The February Membership Meeting

    is canceled due to a severe outbreak

    of Zoom Fatigue Syndrome

    The pandemic has definitely affected all of us and, unfortunately, the Executive Board had to cancel the February Membership Meeting. On the brighter side, We created and developed a newsletter to give all our members an update in lieu of the February meeting and as a supplement for the rest of the year. Look for it in your mailboxes. We are hoping to make this a quarterly newsletter so please let us know what you would like to see in it.

    The eboard had an intense burst of creative energy this December for our annual Holiday Event. The usual Hot Chocolate party had to be canceled due to the Coronavirus upsurge, but we managed to deliver custom SF D11 Democratic Club mugs* packed with goodies to our members and had a great Zoom meeting with guest Pedro Hernandez from FairVote.com. We are working on more new and creative ways to connect with club members this year.  Please save the date for our next virtual meeting on April 14th and our annual social and fundraiser on June 4th.

    *If you did not get your mug last December, please contact us at [email protected]

    • Wednesday, September  14, 2016, 6:30 - 9:30pm for all Proposition Endorsements

    With plenty of candidates and over 40 propositions on the ballot, we had to expand to TWO big endorsement meetings in September. Everyone is welcome to attend as there are a lot of important propositions on the ballot

    The SF D11 Democratic Club is co-sponsoring a candidate forum with the D11 Council from 11:30 to 2:30. Local candidates for the State Senate, Judge and D11 Supervisor Race have been invited. The location is the Crocker Amazon Clubhouse on Moscow at Italy. Check the calendar for more info

    Our candidate endorsement meeting will commence immediately after the forum. The S.F. District 11 Democratic Club will also invite the candidates for School board and City College board. While it might seem like a long day, this process is very important to the future of our District. Of course, there will be plenty of food to keep our energy up for these very  important decisions.  Please RSVP here. The candidate endorsement meeting is also at the Crocker Amazon Clubhouse. 

    The propositions will be presented, discussed and voted on Wednesday, August 31, 2016, at the venerable Henry Hunan's Restaurant at 4753 Mission Street. We will provide summary sheets describing the propositions and speakers on some of the major ones. Please RSVP hereAgain, it sounds like a long night but with a little political fellowship and a lot of noodles, you will emerge an educated voter!

    Regular dues-paying members are eligible to vote on endorsements. Regular members can pay their dues on the spot to be eligible to vote on endorsements. New members who joined and paid dues 30 days ago or more are eligible to vote. All members of the community are invited to attend.
