Children’s Charity Gala

Thank you to all who joined us for an impactful and emotional evening at our 39th Annual Children’s Charity Gala, presented by Joan and Irwin Jacobs. Over 400 attendees and sponsors united to create Tales of Hope for children and families experiencing homelessness in San Diego.

Eric and Jennie Casazza graciously served as Honorary Chairs and NBC7’s Monica Dean emceed the event. Cristiano and Adriana Amon, and Ron Cohn and Family, were presented with awards for their generous contributions to the organization.

The event raised over $1.3 million to combat homelessness and rebuild lives. All funds support programs that enable families and children to create a new story. Periods of struggle are inevitable, but hardships or current circumstances do not define our neighbors. This is just a chapter.

Thank you for helping our neighbors turn the page to a brighter future and for making a substantial impact in the lives of those in need. Your generosity is proof that, above all, hope prevails.

Lasting Legacy

Joan Jacobs passed away shortly before the event. As an advocate, visionary, and philanthropist, she blessed Father Joe’s Villages and countless other organizations. Joan’s interest, support, and example made a great deal possible for San Diego, ensuring it had the elements of a world-class city. 

As the presenting sponsor of our Children’s Gala, Joan once again demonstrated her commitment to breaking the generational cycle of homelessness. We are forever grateful for her compassion and investment in the population we serve. We will continue to honor Joan’s legacy in our work.
