We are writing to invite all of our members and candidates to join together in celebration of this year’s graduates from SFCP’s Psychoanalytic Training Program. The Graduation Ceremony begins at 4:00pm in the Center’s auditorium. Our 2017 speaker is Mary Margaret McClure, DMH. A champagne and hors d'oeuvres reception will follow the ceremony.

Graduation Ceremony:

Begins at 4:00pm
SFCP, 444 Natoma Street, San Francisco
(between 5th & 6th streets, Mission & Howard streets)
(RSVP is not needed for the Graduation Ceremony)

The Dinner Celebration begins at 6:30pm at Fang Restaurant. Located at 660 Howard Street, between 2nd and 3rd Streets, Fang is just a short walk from SFCP. The dinner at Fang was a big hit in previous years and we are looking forward to another outstanding meal.

Fang is the sister restaurant of Chinatown favorite, House of Nanking, now seven years old, and serves an innovative combination of traditional and modern Chinese food, drawing on the cuisines of Shanghai, Nanjing and Hangzhou. Patricia Unterman, in her 2010 SF Examiner review, wrote, “If you visit Fang expecting the restraint and balance of the region’s traditional cooking, you will be disappointed. But if you are open to lively, very personal creations that riff on the flavors and techniques from this area, you will discover many addictive dishes. Fang is an original”.

We will dine in Fang’s Upstairs Private Banquet Room, where we will enjoy passed hors d’oeuvres and wine, followed by a multicourse course dinner, with full table service. Cocktails will also be available for purchase from Fang’s bar.

Dinner Celebration:

Begins at 6:30pm
Fang Restaurant, 660 Howard Street, San Francisco
(between 2dn & 3rd streets)
(Pre-registration is required for the Dinner Celebration. Please register by Friday, May 5, 2017. Space is limited and early registration is recommended.)
