Feeding America San Diego hosted community leaders, philanthropists, and humanitarians at its inaugural fundraising gala on Oct. 13 at a memorable evening under the stars in La Jolla with Master of Ceremonies Larry King. Guests enjoyed a sunset on the beach while sipping fresh cocktails, experiencing delectable cuisine, and enjoying an exclusive performance by nine-time Grammy winner Sheryl Crow.
“Sunset Soirée” was underwritten by the Meyer Family, allowing 100 percent of funds raised through tickets, tables and sponsorships to go directly to programs at Feeding America San Diego. Through key partnerships with corporate partners, food donors, grocery stores and the national member network, Feeding America San Diego provides six meals for every dollar donated.
