Magic Johnson to keynote free San Diego philanthropy event at Del Mar Fairgrounds

The Jewish Federation of San Diego County will welcome more than 900 men to its 16th annual Men’s Event. The event is taking place at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 6, at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. Earvin “Magic” Johnson will deliver the keynote speech, and the theme of the evening is “The Magic of Caring for Others.”

In addition to Johnson’s remarks, the first and only Israeli gold medalist, Gal Fridman, will take part of this special evening and share how he cares for others in his own community. For the first time in the history of Men’s Event, attendance is free as the event has been fully and generously underwritten by the Mizel Family Foundation.

The Jewish Federation has engaged four committed leaders in the community to co-chairs the event efforts — Ronnie Diamond, Ira Feinswog, Todd Kirschen and Alan Viterbi. The Jewish Federation is the vehicle for the Jewish community to care for others locally in San Diego, nationally, in Israel and around the world. In addition to encouraging participants to support the Jewish Federation’s efforts, the Federation has partnered with several local organizations to provide volunteer opportunities to the participants and spark the “Magic of Caring for Others” in the San Diego community.
