The 2016 Gala was a night to remember, with a gourmet dinner, meeting our 2016 scholarship recipients, mingling with a Who’s Who of San Diego society and bidding on one-of-a-kind auction items.

The Gala culminated with prime seating to enjoy the beloved songs of Brian Wilson from his days with the Beach Boys and as a solo artist.
