It is with immense gratitude that I write this to most sincerely thank Schubach Aviation and Ranch & Coast Magazine for hosting the event of the season, San Diego’s “Best of 2013 Party” on Friday May 24th, 2013 at Schubach Aviation’s hangar in Carlsbad, CA. Shelter to Soldier was the beneficiary for this year’s party and we are blown away with the generosity of the above mentioned organizations as well as the many individuals and companies that donated to the successful opportunity drawing and silent and live auctions.
Thank you to Andrea Naversen for being our wonderful MC and to Russ T Nailz for donating his time as our auctioneer. We appreciate all of the donors that helped us raise much needed funds via our silent auction and opportunity drawings: Detour Salon, Curtis Chan, DDS., Fairen Del, George’s California Modern, Urban Plates, Solace, Carmel Valley Facial Plastic Surgery, Eddie V’s Prime Seafood, Helen Woodward Animal Center, Café Secret, Uber on Demand Private Drivers, Shier Aviation, Pacifica Del Mar, San Diego Opera, Popchips & SeaWorld, Cynthia Webb Designs, Camellia Boutique, Burlap, Baxter Development Group, The Lodge Torrey Pines, Promises2Kids Summer Concert Gala, TRE Boutique, Longaberger (through Lore Meanley), Schubach Aviation, Geppetto’s, BodyRokCarlsbad, Dirty Dogs, Frog’s Fitness, Park Hyatt Aviara Resort, Del Mar Rendezvous, HPF Hangover Prevention, Cedros Soles & 20 Lounge, Adelaide’s, and Belly Up.
A special thank you to our live auction donors; Schubach Aviation & The Bacara Resort, The Grand Del Mar, and John Matty Co. We were able to raise $11,100.00 on these amazing live auction items alone! We will be posting the total amount raised soon!
We would also like to thank the culinary and beverage partners who certainly added so much to the evening. Pamplemousse Grille, Del Mar Rendezvous, The Fish Market, Burlap, Market Restaurant & Bar, The Marine Room, Pacifica Del Mar, Cafe’ Secret, Waters Fine Catering, Stone Brewing Co., Nobleza Azul Tequila and Venom Vodka. A big thank you to our floral partner, Adelaide’s, for providing amazing arrangements!
The event was a huge success for CA non-profit Shelter to Soldier and has given us a needed boost for rescuing and training more shelter dogs and certifying them to be service companions for our veterans suffering with mental health disabilities.
We will be forever grateful for the level of support and love that was evident from the beginning to the end of the event, and we are particularly grateful to be a part of such a giving, loving and dedicated community.
We look forward to growing the partnerships and networks that were established on this fantastic evening and we can’t wait to see familiar faces at our future events. Thank you for your continued support! Together we will save lives, two at a time!
