The Boys & Girls Club of Vista invites you to join us for our Diamond Ball Gala “Mama Mia” on Saturday, May 12 at the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort and Spa. This annual event features Club member entertainment, music, casino-style games, both a live and silent auction, and a special musical preview from “Mama Mia” by performers from the Moonlight Stage Productions. The evening will begin at 5:30 with the silent auction and reception.
The Emcee for the evening is Anne State. Anne is the PR & Community Outreach Manager for Lifesharing, a Donate Life organization which connects organ donors and recipients in San Diego County and beyond. She is also an Emmy award-winning journalist, formerly with “The Now San Diego” on 10News, and before that, NBC San Diego.
According to Matt Koumaras, CEO of the Boys & Girls Club of Vista, “The money raised at the Gala enables the Club to provide engaging and enriching out of school experiences for the kids in our community who need the most support. Members pay just $50 a year to join, but the actual cost is $577 per child. Events like the Gala help us to “fill the gap” to continue offering high quality programs in support of Vista’s kids.”
Tickets are available at $200 per person; $1,350 per table of eight and include appetizers, dinner and casino-style games for prizes. To order tickets visit www.bgcvista.org or contact Ellen Clark at email@example.com or 760-724-6606 ext. 12. Sponsorships are also available.
Premier and Contributing Sponsors for the evening include U.S. Bank, Watkins Wellness and DEI’s Forte for Children.

ElderHelp staff and volunteers alongside UPS volunteers and their families orchestrate the delivery of more than 350 festive poinsettias and gift cards to seniors in our community–creating bonds of intergenerational friendship and brightening the lives of those who may feel overlooked at the holidays. But really, the visit means more than the delivery. The “Angels” don’t just drop off the gifts–they sit down on the sofa for a chat, they share a cup of tea or play a game of cards, they give each senior the pride of hosting a holiday visitor and the comfort of knowing they belong to a caring community. ElderHelp seeks your support through online donations or gift cards to help seniors stretch their limited budgets and feel special at the holidays.
