2023 LAUNCH Event

Our 2023 LAUNCH Party will feature:

More of San Diego’s top chefs and restaurants serving up their own unique creations for your enjoyment.


Our most exclusive VIP lounge to date:

  • Tray-passed hors d’oeuvres and tasty appetizers and decadent treats.
  • Private hosted OPEN bar serving premium liquors and wine.
  • Exclusive VIP entrance, exclusive restroom and more!

The Board of Directors along with Host Committee, Event Underwriters and Sponsors and Silent Auction donors fund 100% of the expenses associated with this fundraising event. So all monies collected will go directly to the Foundation.

Over the years, through your generous support, the Foundation has granted over $200,000 back to our community.
