This handbill was reprinted for the Bill Graham Presents' employees on the company's 25th Anniversary in 1990.

Bill Graham said that the "Appeal Party", the first benefit for the San Francisco Mime Troupe, was by far the most significant evening of his life in theater. Thrown to raise money for the Troupe after Ronnie Davis was arrested for performing in the park without a permit, the Benefit brought together a mixed group of musicians, theatre buffs, political liberals, and passionate folks looking for something hip and happening.
