Giant Sweep Mid-Market Cleanup and Poster Walk Celebration
Saturday, July 27, 2013, 10 a.m. (registration 9:45) @ U.N. Plaza
Those who register and volunteer will be entered into a raffle for SF Giants tickets for the August 6th game against the Milwaukee Brewers or a baseball signed by SF Giant Hunter Pence.
Join us on Saturday, July 27, 2013 for the Mid-Market Giant Sweep Cleanup and Poster Walk celebration, hosted by the Department of Public Works, the San Francisco Arts Commission and the City’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development.
The first annual Giant Sweep poster contest received more than 270 entries! Now, we want to make sure the public gets a chance to check out all the posters created by our talented and creative students.
The festivities will get under way at U.N. Plaza at 10 a.m., when the three winning posters will be unveiled. Enjoy great music from bands like the San Francisco Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band, the Dixieland Dykes +3 and T-Mambo Cuban Salsa Band!
Immediately following, volunteers, working with public works crews, will be provided with equipment to pick up litter on Market Street from 10th to Fifth streets. As they’re working, they’ll get to see all the great Giant Sweep posters, which will be placed on display along the corridor in a multi-location popup art gallery.
The event promises to be fun, productive and inspiring. But first we need your help.
Get involved and join the team! We are seaking volunteers to help us pick up litter. You’ll be surprised how good it feels to pitch in with others to beautify the neighborhood.
Sign up at firstname.lastname@example.org and be sure to let us know how many people will be joining your group.
