This outdoor event featured live musical entertainment, fabulous silent and live auction items, specialty hors d’oeuvres prepared by renowned local chefs and a delicious dinner.

Dear Food Bank Friends and Supporters,

The San Diego Food Bank is preparing to host its 12th Annual San Diego Food Bank Gala outside on the grounds of their Miramar facility, and we feel incredibly honored to serve as this year’s Co-Chairs. The goal of the Gala is twofold. First, to celebrate the impact of the Food Bank’s programs on San Diego families facing food insecurity, and second, to raise the vital funds necessary to continue the Food Bank’s critical work as the county’s regional safety net for anyone experiencing hardship. This includes working-poor families, seniors living on a fixed income, and children living in poverty.

Our incredible donors and Gala Sponsors are the foundation for the Food Bank’s continuing success. We hope you will join us in supporting this year’s event and find a sponsorship level that speaks to your passion for the Food Bank’s mission. The San Diego Food Bank’s mission is one that touches our hearts, and we hope their work will inspire you, too.

With great appreciation,

Amy Jacobs and Jeannie Johnson-Bolinger
