The 2017 Heart & Soul Gala was a success! With an incredible matching gift from Evelyn & Ernest Rady, we were able to raise more than $1,100,000 for JFS. We are deeply humbled by the outpouring of generosity from our community, whose investment offers a way forward to thousands of individuals and families who turn to JFS when hope feels out of reach.
Thank you to our Underwriters, Gala Committee, and Auction Donors, whose exceptional effort and support made the evening possible. Together, we are building a stronger, healthier, more resilient San Diego.
We look forward to seeing you at the next JFS event!
