48 Hills First Anniversary Gala: Thank you for coming!

April 23 Gala to raise funds for SF’s independent news site featured music, food, and networking galore.

A huge thank you to everyone who attended and contributed to our April 23 fundraiser at the beautiful Verdi Club! The live jazz by Marc Capelle of Marc & the Casuals and friends  was uplifting. Comedy by Dhaya Lakshminarayanan brought the house down. A big spread of Mexican food from Casa Sanchez kept us all fed and happy. And there were too many special guests and progressive legends in the house to name here.

We’ll have more fundraisers coming up to ensure 48 Hills keeps reporting on essential news, politics, arts, and culture issues. So if you missed this one, don’t fret. (Please donate to help us expand with more coverage!) Enjoy these pictures from the event by photographer Peter Menchini:

  1. Congratulations on such an impressive year of reporting. …much deserved celebration of for the considerable effort it takes to run a site like this.

  2. Looks like you all had a good time! Have really enjoyed reading 48hills this past year – here’s to another great year of reporting! Thanks, Tim, and everyone –

  3. With the number of serial ids registered by individuals posting on 48hills, clearly it outstrips the sfbg along that measure.

  4. 48hills would have no way of knowing what percentage of folks who read SFBG now read this blog.

    Many issues of SFBG were distributed but, as a free paper, it’s hard to know how many were taken for free cat litter or emergency bathroom tissue.

    A comparison could be made of the number of eyeballs visiting 48Hills versus the online version of SFBG. But the latter data is probably unavailable now and/or in the hands the its corporate owner.

    And even if Tim had that data, he could not possibly know who those viewers were versus who views 48Hills now, except in the rare handful of cases where readers here commentate with their real name and also did there.

    All that said, it would be interesting to see a graphic of their page hits and whether they are growing, declining or stagnant

  5. So, how much did you raise? And I wonder about what percentage of the SFBG’s readership 48hills now has? Would you share 48hills’ stats?
