Sheriff's Foundation to hold first fundraising gala

The San Diego County Deputy Sheriff's Foundation is holding its first fundraising gala on Feb. 28 in Rancho Santa Fe.

The “Support and Remember” event will raise funds for the foundation’s core programs, which include support to widows and children of law enforcement personnel who die in the line of duty, as well as sickness and distress assistance to San Diego County Sherriff’s Deputies and their families who have medical needs that are not completely covered by health insurance, or have other emergencies.

The gala event honors Scripps Health President and CEO Chris Van Gorder for his leadership in the community and his service worldwide following natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina and the earthquake in Haiti. Van Gorder also volunteers as a reserve commander with the Sheriff's Search and Rescue Unit.

Others on hand for the event include: Sheriff Bill Gore; author Joseph Wambaugh; the live sounds of recording artist Mario Olivaras and Latin Spice; internationally acclaimed winemaker Jean-Charles Boisset; and Brent and Kelly King, the parents of Chelsea King and spokespersons for the Chelsea's Light Foundation.

The foundation plans to make this gala an annual event.
