Las Patronas Beneficiary Luncheon

Las Patronas presented 11 San Diego organizations with checks for more than $20,000 each at the nonprofit’s annual Beneficiary Luncheon at The Marine Room. The grants were funded with proceeds from the 72nd Jewel Ball, Viva la Vida, which raised a total of $847,545. The 73rd Jewel Ball, Wonderland, will take place on August 3. For more than seven decades, The Jewel Ball has been the main fundraising effort of Las Patronas and today is one of San Diego’s most enduring, cultural, and philanthropic traditions in San Diego.
