Welcome to San Francisco Maritime National Park Association's 12th Annual Maritime Heritage Awards Gala. This is a wonderfully exciting year, as we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Maritime National Park, as well as San Francisco's inaugural role hosting the America's Cup races.

Proceeds from our annual Gala support the Association's mission of bringing maritime history to life through education and preservation. Your participation will help provide critical funding for Bay Area school children, as they participate in our award-winning education programs aboard the historic ships of Hyde Street Pier and the USS Pampanito WWII submarine. Over 14,000 children attend our programs annually, and many of them rely upon scholarships, largely funded by contributions raised at this event. The Maritime programs seek to awaken local students to a world beyond their neighborhoods, while celebrating the maritime history of San Francisco.

We encourage you to consider participating in this year's Maritime Gala. We believe it will be a unique moment for all of us to honor the many wonderful aspects of our maritime setting here in San Francisco. Download invitation
