Red Balloon

Traveling Stories took their organization to new heights during their first annual Red Balloon Awards. Cirque du Livre opened its pages to supporters with an inspirational dinner and awards gala honoring literacy heroes in the community. Just in 2015, the award-winning nonprofit inspired 5,000 kids in California, and abroad, to fall in love with reading via programs and seven world libraries. Thanks to the support of Mission Federal Credit Union, strong literacy skills are being created in San Diego.Over the last three years, the Boys and Girls Club of San Diego’s signature event has raised over $2.4 million to help to continue to change lives. This year, the fun and party returned with live entertainment by former Lead Guitarist of The Eagles, Don Felder. Funds raised support kids through programs that promote academic success, character development and healthy lifestyles.Some of San Diego’s top executives gathered at The Grand Golf Club course at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar for a summer fundraiser benefitting Junior Achievement. Along with staff and volunteers, business leaders enjoyed a round of golf from carts to caddies and on-course food and beverages to an awards reception to conclude the engagement. Now in its 4th edition, the event collects monies to help empower young people to achieve their own economic success.Shopping, sipping and supporting was in store for guests of the Art of Fashion Show & Luncheon in Rancho Santa Fe this year. Relishing in the summer sun, attendees had a chance to boutique shop while drinking enjoying the latest fashions on the runway. Fashionable supporters were happy to form part of the organization’s efforts in raising funds for local human care agencies.
