Alzheimer’s Association gala raises more than $300K

The Alzheimer’s Association San Diego/Imperial Chapter’s annual spring fundraiser – “Our Bright Future” – was held May 15 at the private Rancho Santa Fe residence of Lori and Steve Temko.

The event, which was chaired by local community leaders Jim Laslavic and Ed Campbell, was attended by more than 400 people and raised approximately $325,000. The event’s honorary chairs were San Diego icon Rolf Benirschke and the Legacy Golf Group.

Each year, the association honors an individual, business or group that has made an extraordinary contribution to those living with Alzheimer’s disease with the Reagan/Thal Legacy Award. This year’s award recipient was coach Frank Broyles.

The event featured singer-songwriter Tristan Prettyman and a tasting of San Diego restaurants and world-class wines.
