The San Diego Center for Children’s 130th Anniversary Celebration, Protecting Hope, Creating Dreams, will take place on Thursday, May 4, 2017 at the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina, 333 West Harbor Drive, San Diego, CA beginning at 5:30 p.m.
The Center, founded in 1887, is San Diego’s oldest children’s nonprofit organization, offering comprehensive accredited therapeutic and educational programs for children and teens struggling with mental, emotional and behavioral disorders.

The celebratory event will include silent and live auctions, a three-course dinner, and live entertainment. The Anniversary Celebration committee is co-chaired by Sue Kalish, Sally Oxley, Doreen Schonbrun and Gwynn Thomas. Committee members include Monica Ball, Vicki Barón, Joyce Glazer, Jackie Greulich, Vince Heald, Martha Lorch, Deborah Lys, Mary Montgomery Johnson, Michelle Mueller, Jim Mulvaney and Dori Wittman. Honorary chairs are Jack McGrory and Una Davis.

Bank of America will be honored at the event with this year’s PATH Award, which will be presented by Mayor Kevin Faulconer. The PATH Award is a distinguished and annual acknowledgement of the Center’s Partners in Achieving Transformation and Hope. The PATH Award recognizes partners of the Center who have made an outstanding impact, celebrating extraordinary contribution and transformative outcomes.
Bank of America’s support for the San Diego Center for Children was strengthened with a Neighborhood Builders two-year grant in 2014. The award allowed for the creation – and continued growth – of an important and innovative program to serve the needs of transition-aged youth who are struggling with mental, emotional and behavioral disorders.

“Bank of America is proud to be the 2017 recipient of the PATH award by the San Diego Center for Children. It’s their 130 years of inventive and highly impactful programs for local children that certainly deserve all the accolades, but we are happy to be considered their partner in this effort to help families get on the path to self sufficiency,” said Rick Bregman, San Diego market president, Bank of America.”

Moisés Barón, Ph.D., president and CEO of the San Diego Center for Children, commented, “We are grateful to Bank of America and to the generous corporate and individual support from so many in our community that allow us to build on our 130-year history to find new and innovative ways to bring care to even more families in need.”
