Home Start, a local nonprofit organization dedicated to child abuse prevention and providing evidence-based family strengthening services, will celebrate its 50th anniversary at its annual Blue Ribbon Gala this year. The event is titled “IMAGINE Families Living Life in Peace” and will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m., Saturday, May 14 at The US Grant Hotel, located at 326 Broadway in downtown San Diego.

This annual signature event raises funds for the organization’s crucial programs and assistance services to help children and parents affected by tragedies including homelessness, domestic violence, hunger, abuse, and neglect.

Guests will enjoy a three-course dinner, live entertainment, inspiring stories of lives changed, and appearances from special guests. Attendees may choose to dress in 70’s attire, and they will also experience special activities and surprises from that era. There will be many chances to bid on unique travel packages and specialty items during the live and silent auctions.

To celebrate this milestone, the evening will especially highlight the impact Home Start has made during the past five decades, reflecting on the lives changed through Home Start’s programs.  It will bring awareness to Home Start’s mission of strengthening families and communities across San Diego.

“We are thrilled to be celebrating 5 decades of providing services to San Diego children and families. This will be an evening to remember that will raise crucial funds for our life-changing programs,” shares Laura Tancredi-Baese, Home Start Chief Executive Officer.

The Presenting Sponsor for this year’s event is the Rodeki Foundation, and the Gold Sponsors are U.S. Bank, Guild Mortgage, and MUFG Union Bank. For more information about sponsorship opportunities, please contact Mark Lagace, Director of Philanthropy, at mlagace@home-start.org.
