The GOLD (Gifts of Loving Donors) Diggers of San Diego honored the work of the Polinsky Children’s Center Auxiliary during “Hats Off to San Diego: “There’s No Place Like Home” at Hotel Del Coronado on April 4.
The GOLD Diggers of San Diego celebrated the event with a playful Oz theme.
The Polinsky Children’s Center Auxiliary received $5,000 as the traditional luncheon’s major beneficiary.
The award will enrich the auxiliary’s efforts to provide a safe, nurturing and loving temporary home for 3,000 of San Diego’s at-risk children each year.
The A. B. and Jessie Polinsky Children’s Center is a 24-hour facility for the temporary emergency shelter of children who must be separated from their families for their own safety, or when their parents cannot provide care.
The chair of the event was Sandra Graff. Holly Smith Jones is the current president of the Gold Diggers.
