The World Tree of Hope Celebration

When: Monday, December 5, 5:30 PM

Where: City Hall Rotunda

Join Mayor Edwin M. Lee and First Lady Anita Lee for the 6th annual unveiling of our holiday Tree of Hope. Every year since its inception the Rainbow World Fund (RWF), an international humanitarian organization based in the LGBT community, has supported the event by collecting paper origami cranes with special wishes of hope written inside them to decorate the tree.

This year’s event will include performances from Rita Moreno, Peter Coyote, the San Francisco Boys Chorus, Donna Sachet, Josh Klipp, Veronica Klaus, The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Daryoush, and many more. Mayor Edwin M. Lee will be in attendance to give brief remarks and to take photographs with attendees at the Tree of Hope. This year’s World Tree of Hope is dedicated to the victims and survivors of the Northern Japan Earthquake and Tsunami. Consul General of Japan, Hiroshi Inomata, will talk about the current situation in the country’s devastated areas.


Help decorate The World Tree of Hope by sending us your wish.
