Center for Children Benefit

First, the Center for Children Gala raised funds with “Glee” at the U.S. Grant Hotel. That was a “Glee-ish” show presented by some very talented children from the center.

The evening got off to high notes with audience participation in a sing-a-long encouraged by San Diego Center for Children’s Executive Director Rana Sampson. More contributing to the cause were Gala co-chairs Doreen Schonbrun and Kathleen Stoughton, Gala honoree co-chairs Olivia and Peter Farrell, and Lisette and Michael Farrell, as well as the evening’s honorees, Laurel and Donald McKahan.

Long-time donor Darlene Shiley was unable to attend but sent a big check to help the San Diego Center for Children. All in all a tremendous contribution to help the center’s  mission to aid children and adolescents suffering with mental health issues and re-directing them toward a healthier future through creative programs such as music and dance.

Meanwhile, across town in La Jolla, a very cool art opening took place at the K. Nathan Gallery. The gallery has long been known as San Diego’s premiere source for early Californian and pre-1970 paintings collected by a local and  international who’s who.

K. Nathan Gallery guests Holly Peters, Katie Krebbs and Dylan Edwards.

For this evening, one of the ‘it’ artists of the contemporary California art scene, Tony Peters, was the feature. As such, the gallery was soon packed with art enthusiasts and collectors who appreciate and covet Peters’ vision of the urban landscape. As explained by Keith N. Kelman from the gallery, Peters’ most recent honors include the prestigious Urban Landscape Award from the California Art Club.

Voice Your Opinion

We Want Your Opinions on San Diego’s Big Issues In the coming months, Probosky Research (one of California’s leading opinion research firms) will continue its partnership with SD METRO to survey San Diego residents about topics of interest to our readers. We’d like to throw open the door for suggestions for topics. What do you want to know? What do you think you know, but aren’t sure? What are you certain you know, but want to prove it beyond doubt? Ideally, we’d like to see questions that have to do with public policy.

Some areas may include Mayor Filner’s first 100 days job performance, should the city be responsible for economic growth and the creation of new jobs, how important are infrastructure improvements to our daily lives (streets and bridges, etc.), how important is water independence, how satisfied are residents with public transit or how do city residents value Balboa Park and other open spaces? Do you believe the City Council should revive the Plaza de Panama plan for Balboa Park?
