Dirk Dirksen Alley Memorial Plaque

The City of San Francisco to honor Dirk Dirksen

Donations are being excepted now www.hearnet.com/auction.html

The City of San Francisco has authorized the street naming of Dirk Dirksen Alley at the former Rowland Street location. For those of you who don't know, Rowland Street is the alley next to the old Mabuhay Gardens location at 443 Broadway Street in North Beach.

With your help we will be purchasing a memorial plaque and installing it at the Dirk Dirksen Alley location.

H.E.A.R. will be managing the contributions going towards the Dirk Dirksen plaque creation and the city sidewalk installation. Our goal is to raise $3000.00

Please help the friends and family of Dirk Dirksen and the City of San Francisco to complete this last step to honor the Pope of Punk and San Francisco's Counterculture Music Scene that he presided over.

Thank all of you for your wonderful support! And a very special thanks to San Francisco Supervisor and Comic Tom Ammiano, Supervisor Ammiano's Legislative Assistant Zack Tuller. Many thanks to San Francisco Supervisor Aaron Peskin, Barbara Moy SFDPW, Liz Lerma SFDPW, Durden DiJaida SFDPW, Rich Bridygham SFDWP, San Francisco Chronicle Music Critic Joel Selvin and H.E.A.R.

We are in the final steps. Remember it's almost here....so we need your help. As Dirk would say... Onward and Upward!
