Gala: Not For Sale 2013
Today, human trafficking is the fastest growing criminal industry in the world, and more than 30 million people live in modern-day slavery. On October 5th, we will unite to give freedom to more than 1,500 women, children, and men in the year to come. Held at the stunning City View at Metreon, Not For Sale’s annual gala will bring together international advocates to celebrate Not For Sale’s work and to empower the global movement to end slavery. The event will include a world-class dining experience, musical entertainment, powerful speeches from modern abolitionists, and personal stories of hope from survivors.
Overlooking the city lights of downtown San Francisco, the 2013 Not For Gala will begin with a cocktail reception, featuring an interactive installation depicting the realities of modern-day slavery. Guests will then be treated to a full-course dinner and performances by Nikki Reed of Twilight and Paul McDonald of American Idol acclaimed artists who are advocates in the movement to end slavery. Speakers, including Not For Sale President Dave Batstone and Thailand Director Kru Nam, will share passionately on the issue of human trafficking and the work being done to combat it.
