“San Francisco has been in my heart for over 50 years,” said the 93-year-old Bennett in a statement. “I am so proud and impressed with how the City by the Bay has continued to ‘bend the curve’ during the COVID-19 crisis and serve as an inspiration to the world of how together and alone we can make a difference.”
