VetsinTech Gala 2019

Every year 250,000 veterans transition out of military service,
80% of them enter civilian life without a job or defined career path. 

We invite you to help drive our programs in support of
education, employment, and entrepreneurship opportunities for veterans…

Join us at our 5th Annual VetsinTech Fundraising Gala

November 8th at the Marines’ Memorial Club in San Francisco.

We are pleased to announce:
The MC Hammer Scholarship for Veteran Tech Education

Stanley Kirk Burrell, better known as MC Hammer, is an American rapper, dancer, record producer and entrepreneur. MC Hammer is also a Navy Veteran!

Hammer will be joining VetsinTech at our 5th Annual Veteran’s Day Gala to kick off the “MC Hammer Scholarship for Veteran Tech Education”

Thank you to our host committee for your support to our returning veterans!

There are several ways that you can help us support the “Vets 2.0 Beyond the Transition” Fall 2019 Gala:

1. Become a sponsor – as outlined in the enclosed sponsorship package

2. Purchase event tickets – individually or up to ten for a complete table

3. Invite a veteran to join you – we can connect you to VIT alumni


The evening will begin at 6 p.m. with a VIP cocktail reception and silent auction, followed by a seated dinner, live auction, and live entertainment.

The dress code for this event is semi-formal with dress uniform or black tie optional. We hope you will support the gala and the organization by attending the event, having your company sponsor it, or making a contribution if you cannot join us in person. Your generous support helps VetsinTech continue to provide educational, employment, and entrepreneurial opportunities to our veterans.



Your generous support of our Annual Gala will help ensure the VetsinTech mission is a success. By becoming a Gala Sponsor, you’ll get exposure and access at a high-profile event drawing hundreds of influential supporters, along with plenty of media attention. Sponsors will also enjoy ongoing visibility to an audience of prominent philanthropists, corporate leaders and public officials through our pre-event, on-site, and post-event communications. Whatever level of assistance you choose to give, we sincerely thank you for supporting ViT, the veterans we help, and the organizations we impact.
