‘Hats Off to San Diego’ luncheon


The Gold Diggers of San Diego held the 20th Anniversary “Hats Off to San Diego” luncheon and Betty Mabee Hat Parade on May 16 at the Del Mar Country Club.

The theme for 2013 was “Light Up The World Through Giving,” and the hats designed by the 11 local nonprofit competing charities all expressed this theme in a creative way that illuminates the mission of each organization.

This year’s major beneficiaries are License to Freedom, which promotes nonviolence and serves refugee and immigrant women and children, and a Transitional Storage Center for the homeless, organized by the Girls Think Tank. Both will receive grants of $5,000 from the Gold Diggers in honor of the 20th Anniversary of Hats Off.
