Serving children, youth and families in San Diego County since 1971.


We sold out at 450 guests for an evening that could not have been more perfect: sunset, ambiance, friends, stories of hope and then
dancing into the evening.

We celebrated partnerships and most importantly raised much needed funds for domestic violence services. Nearly $200,000 was raised that evening to sustain and support domestic violence emergency shelter, 24/7 response team, counseling and also Mi Escuelita Therapeutic Preschool.  Of these funds, more than $60,000 was raised specifically for Mi Escuelita Therapeutic Preschool during the evening’s paddle raise. 

Please know that your partnership on this one evening gives over and over again. We hope you will consider joining us again next October –details to be shared soon! In the meantime, please enjoy the following photos and video and relive the evening!
