The article describes our grassroots park project and features quotes from many of our founding supporters including Former San Francisco Mayor Mark Farrell, SF Recreation & Park General Manager Phil Ginsburg, Launce Gamble, Bruce Keene, and Helen Hilton Raiser. We are especially grateful to Francisco Park Leadership Donors Lyna Lam and Chris Larsen who have stepped up in so many ways for us and were photographed and quoted in the article. We are thrilled for the extra visibility the Nob Hill Gazette article brings to Francisco Park during the last weeks of our 2018 Matching Gift Challenge.
