Monte Carlo: A Night to Remember took place on Saturday June 30 at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront. The organization’s biggest fundraiser had more than 600 guests in attendance.
San Ysidro Health THANKS YOU for attending and participating!
All proceeds from this year’s gala will help the organization continue to provide high-quality, compassionate health services to 95,000 patients across San Diego County.
The Hilton San Diego Bayfront was transformed into an elegant rendering of the classic Monte Carlo Casino in Monaco. Guests had an opportunity to mingle, enjoy delectable food and try their luck in the ‘faux’ casino with gaming tables. In addition, attendees participated in silent and live auctions, which included 10 exclusive and original art pieces created and donated by Alejandro Rojas Salazar, artist and art dealer of Alexander Salazar Fine Art.
“We would like to thank our dedicated community supporters who helped make this event possible,” said Kevin Mattson, president and CEO, San Ysidro Health. “We are committed to continue to provide essential services to the 95,000 lives in our care and help them reach their best health potential and thrive in the communities we serve.”
The Health Champion award was awarded to Chula Vista Mayor Mary Casillas Salas, Congresswoman Susan Davis and Congressman Scott Peters for their tireless dedication to protect funding for essential healthcare services for San Diego County’s families that need it the most.
More than half of San Ysidro Health’s patient base is children and seniors. During the gala San Ysidro Health announced its first-ever capital campaign donation of $15,000 by twelve students from the Evans School in La Jolla. The donation will be used to expand pediatric services to serve 7,000 more children.
San Ysidro Health also plans to expand senior services in Chula Vista and El Cajon to meet the growing need in the communities served.
