    Go Red For Women

    2019 San Diego Go Red For Women LuncheonFebruary 28, 2019


    We can do this together! 

    Fifteen years ago, Go Red For Women was born as a campaign to raise awareness among women about their great health threat – heart disease. Slowly, the campaign grew into a movement – one that not only brought together thousands of women annually but became the trusted, passionate, relevant force for change to eradicate heart disease and stroke all over the world. Go Red For Women provides a platform for women and their families to lead healthier lives, and drive collective action for community transformation. It’s not just about wearing red; it’s not just about sharing heart health facts. It’s about: 

    • Providing women with opportunities to prioritize and take charge of their own health;
    • Building communities that support and provide access to healthy choices;
    • Demanding equal access to healthcare for all women and their families;
    • Increasing women in STEM in upcoming generations.

    The Go Red for Women luncheon continues to serve as the cornerstone event of the Go Red For Women movement in local communities. This empowering event focuses on preventing heart disease and stroke by promoting healthy lifestyles, building awareness and raising critically-needed funds to support research and education initiatives. Cardiovascular diseases, which include stroke, claim the life of a woman about every 80 seconds. We hope you will join us on our mission because about 80 percent of cardiovascular diseases may be prevented.


    The time is now. Women are leaning into the idea that when we take a stand, commit, and work together, real change is possible

    Makers of History Gala
    Location: The San Diego History Center - View Map


    One of the oldest and largest historical organizations on the West Coast, the San Diego History Center is one of the only institutions dedicated to the heritage of a major American metropolitan region. The History Center was established in 1928 by noted philanthropist, businessman and civic leader George W. Marston, who built the Junípero Serra Museum to house the new institution on Presidio Hill, site of the founding of San Diego and California.  Marston gifted the Serra Museum and the adjacent land to the City of San Diego in 1929. For over sixty years, the Serra was the site of the Historical Society and Research Archives. In 1982, the Historical Society moved its collections and museum to Balboa Park, maintaining the Serra as an auxiliary museum and educational center. In 2010, San Diego History Center was formally adopted as the institution’s name.

    The San Diego History Center’s annual dinner, The Makers of San Diego History, 
    honors the institutions, communities, and people who have made history in their own time.
