2017 Benefit: Decades of Diversionary

Diversionary’s Totally Triumphant
DECADES OF DIVERSIONARY: THE ‘80S!

 THANK YOU!

 

You and over 160 members of the Diversionary family made last Friday night one to remember!

Through your generosity, Diversionary raised over $38,000!

You outdid yourselves by showing up in your best 80’s wear– mullets, shoulder pads, neon tights, ripped jeans, and punk band t-shirts abounded! The highlights of the evening included the presentation of the Fritz Klein Award to Rob Granat & Al Mazur and the Fritz Klein Artist Award to Shana Wride, and a spectacular performance of Falsettos by San Diego theatre favorites!

Heartfelt thanks go to our Presenting Sponsor U.S. Bank. Other sponsors included Chase, The San Diego Foundation, Pemberley Reality, Hillcrest Pharmacy, Woods Real Estate Services, Thomas Schaide & Russ Fox, Withers Worldwide, David Shamblaw, M.D., Urban Optiks, and San Diego BMW Motorcycle. Thanks also go to our amazing food sponsors Circa, Madison, Muzita Bistro, Spanglish Eats, and Babycakes.
