‘An Evening to Remember…with our American Heroes’

Solutions for Change, a San Diego non-profit dedicated to solving family homelessness, held its annual fundraising gala, “An Evening to Remember…with our American Heroes,” Sept. 19 at the Jet Source airplane hangar at the Carlsbad Airport. This year’s event honored the men and women who have served in the armed forces, while raising support for programs and services that help solve family homelessness.

Event guest speakers were Taya Kyle and Clint Bruce. Taya Kyle is a veteran family activist and widow of U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle (the subject of the 2014 Academy Award-winning film American Sniper) and author of “American Wife: A Memoir of Love, War, Faith, and Renewal.” Clint Bruce, a former Navy SEAL and pro football player, is a nationally-recognized speaker and author on veteran issues and leadership.

The evening featured gourmet cuisine by award-winning Chef Jeffrey Strauss of Pamplemousse Grille, and also showcased live music, live and silent auctions, entertainment and special presentations honoring the men and women who have served in the nation’s military.
