Take a night off from working and worrying about the climate crisis to celebrate SanDiego350’s achievements in good company, and know your contribution supports our bright future.
 
The event will be held in a beautiful garden in Hillcrest. There’ll be beer, wine and appetizers (vegetarian and vegan), entertainment from amazing local musicians Peggy Watson and Devan Moncrief (info below), a guided tour of the permaculture garden and a fun party game or two.

Featuring local musicians:

Peggy Watson and David Beldock: Peggy and David perform original acoustic folk, blues and jazz. Together, they are known for their dazzling musicianship, beautiful harmonies, and humorous stage presence. Peggy Watson is recognized as one of San Diego’s leading acoustic singer/songwriters. “Watson's purity of tone, pinpoint control and glorious range are matched throughout by her unerring good taste” (San Diego Union Tribune). David Beldock and Peggy Watson have been frequent music collaborators for nearly 20 years. Beldock is widely recognized as one of San Diego’s leading guitarists. “Beldock pushes the rhythmic wagon with some of the most cracklin’ country/jazz solos and fills you’ll hear anywhere” (L.A. Times). Beldock is also a top-notch songwriter with several awards.  His song “Feel the Wind,” won a second-place prize in the international John Lennon songwriting contest. Website

Devan Moncrief: Devan’s rich soulful vocals and simple yet genuine lyrics combine to create a powerhouse performance that radiates audiences. She creates music that connects with the human spirit, in harmony with her passion for igniting love through music. Devan M. began writing music at a young age. While her early experiences are rooted in the church, she has developed a musical versatility that enables her to rock out a pop performance, while remaining true to her deep bluesy vocals. The combination makes for an intoxicating production with songs that you just can’t get out of your head. Devan is currently performing locally, honing her solo acoustic performance. Website

Tom Steyer Talks Climate
Sep 7 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Registration for this event ended at 2 pm on Sept 7. There were still a few dozen seats available at that time. We will accept walk-in registrations at the event until the Cathedral is full. Seats will be held for people who registered in advance until 6:15 pm. Thanks in advance for your patience!

Tom Steyer will join us to talk about current issues in climate change politics and NextGen America's work to prevent climate disaster, promote prosperity, and protect the rights of every American.

There will be an extensive Q&A during which Tom will discuss the climate movement, the politics of climate, and how Californians can take effective action.

San Diego Council Member Barbara Bry (District 1) will also talk about implementing a Community Choice Energy program in San Diego in order to meet our goal of 100% clean energy, and how San Diegans can help make it happen. Barbara is a former journalist and high-tech entrepreneur who was on the founding team of several local high-tech companies. 

Council Member Chris Ward (District 3) will introduce Tom Steyer. 

RSVP NOW to join us this exciting evening with climate leader Tom Steyer. And join and share our Facebook event!

Tom is a business leader and philanthropist who believes we have a moral responsibility to give back and help ensure every family shares the benefits of economic opportunity, education, and a healthy climate. He serves as President of NextGen America, an organization he founded as NextGen Climate in 2013 to prevent climate disaster and promote prosperity for all Americans.

“[In 2012] Steyer and environmental activist and author Bill McKibben spent a day trudging through the Adirondacks. Not long after, Steyer parted ways with the leadership of his company and his oil and gas investments, began to fight the Keystone XL pipeline, and then reinvented himself as a one-man superfund for climate causes.”  – Wired
