Supervisor Mandelman was joined by dignitaries and MC Donna Sachet for the flag-raising.


As one of the largest, oldest, and most active Merchant Associations in San Francisco, we are excited for the opportunity to participate as a beneficiary of the Avenue Greenlight initiative, working in conjunction with the SFCDMA Community Fund. These allocated funds will allow us to further our continuing efforts to improve and maintain our commercial neighborhood. Working together, we will survive the devastation resulting from the pandemic.

Masood Samereie, President
