An Elegant Oceanside Charity Event
Thursday, Nov. 17 6:30–9:30 p.m. La Jolla home of Angie Singh, ASHFoundation Board member (ticketed event)
Convention attendees have a unique opportunity on Thursday evening, Nov. 17, to support the philanthropy of the ASHFoundation. Angie Singh, a member of the ASHFoundation Board of Trustees and president of Plural Publishing, will open her beautiful La Jolla home for a special fundraiser. Plan now to join donors and award recipients for an inspirational evening that will bring the charitable community together for a great cause.
Guests will be transported from downtown San Diego along the curving Pacific coastline and ocean bluffs to a scenic experience on a terraced ocean hillside. The elegant fundraiser will feature a full reception and dinner of fine wine and the tastes of India. Most importantly, proceeds will benefit the ASHFoundation’s innovative research grant and scholarship programs, a cause dear to Singh and her late husband, Sadanand Singh, the ASHFoundation’s special champion.
Space is limited, and guests are urged to register early on the ASHA Convention registration form. The ticket price of $200 includes complimentary bus transportation to the event, located 12 miles north of downtown San Diego.
