The Tale of Tom & Jerry’s Tree

Tom Taylor and Jerome Goldstein’s Christmas Tree & Holiday Spectacle in San Francisco’s Dolores Heights draws thousands of visitors. The tree is 65 feet tall! They use a crane to place oversized ornaments, presents, and stuffed toy animals around it. Why do they put on this extravagant display every December, for 20+ years now, all at their own expense? It’s one of their gifts back to the city – and maybe one of the reasons they’ve been together 41 years.  Tom & Jerry, active philanthropists, also founded the Diversity Foundation of San Francisco. Meet them and hear their tale, and their tree’s, on Out in the Bay, 7pm Thursday, Dec. 11, 91.7fm + kalw.org. Eric Jansen hosts.<--break->

The tree and display are on view now through New Year’s Day at 3560 – 21st Street. Santa Claus is there, with candy canes for the kids, every evening through Christmas Eve 6:30 – 9:30pm.  Don’t plan to park on this STEEP block of 21st Street.  If you drive there, park a block or two away and walk to see this fantastic display.
