Sanford-Burnham to hold Camp Bring It! at Del Mar Fairgrounds

Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute (Sanford-Burnham) will host its annual Bring It! event at the Del Mar Fairgrounds on April 25 in support of stem cell research at the Institute. Former San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders will co-chair with founding chairs Stath and Terry Karras. This year’s theme, Camp Bring It!, will challenge guests with a variety of fun camp-themed games.

This unique fundraising event opens with a networking reception attended by San Diego’s business A-listers. Then the games begin, with guests organized into teams, competing for the title of 2013 Bring It! Champion. Celebrating its fifth year, Bring It! is a sort of “un-gala,” abandoning formal wear for a rowdy atmosphere and good-natured rivalry.

Among its many strengths, Sanford-Burnham is known for its world-class capabilities in stem cell research. Sanford-Burnham researchers are harnessing the latest stem cell technology to tackle diseases like diabetes, Alzheimer’s, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), brain tumors and heart disease, as well as spinal cord and brain injuries.

A variety of sponsorship opportunities are offered to businesses wishing to reach an active, affluent audience. Tickets, sponsorships and event information are available at www.sanfordburnhamevents.org/bringit or by calling Karolyn Baker at (858) 795-5239.
