Hundreds of guests in Mad Hatter costumes ventured down the rabbit hole for an Alice In Wonderland-themed evening featuring live dance music under the starry night sky. After sipping on cocktails at a pop-up speakeasy, the women of Junior League of San Diego honored three community leaders leading volunteer efforts.

The award recipients included Dairrick Hodges, who was formerly in foster care and now leads several local programs to empower transition-age youth with mentorship, professional development and exposure to the arts. Ann Hill, also an award recipient, celebrates more than 30 years of promoting equality as a leader with Junior League of San Diego. Her accomplishments include winning a $5-million grant to lower San Diego’s dropout rate and support students from immigrant families. Senator Toni Atkins was recognized for authoring and recently signed legislation to increase funding for affordable housing (SB 2) and protect victims of human trafficking (SB 230).

All proceeds raised from the event support the Junior League of San Diego’s work to help youth transitioning from foster care to the real world, end human trafficking in San Diego and empower women to become strong volunteer leaders in the community.
