GIVING BACK CONCERT
This year we are thrilled to announce an exciting new partnership that brings together our two biggest annual fundraisers, co-branded as the San Diego Giving Back Concert and the San Diego Giving Back Raffle.
This special concert partnership enables the raffle to invite many of our supporters to an unforgettable night of great music. Lucky prizewinners will be awarded an opportunity to redeem two tickets to a benefit concert at Petco Park stadium in San Diego, CA. Join us for this special engagement exclusive to supporters of Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego. Concert tickets will not be sold separately.
The inaugural San Diego Giving Back Concert will feature classic rock band FOREIGNER, responsible for some of rock and roll’s most enduring anthems including “Cold As Ice,” “Hot Blooded,” “Double Vision,” “Juke Box Hero,” “Waiting for a Girl Like You,” and worldwide #1 hit “I Want to Know What Love Is.”
The concert will now be held on March 2, 2021. Concert ticket winners unable to attend the rescheduled event date may choose either 1) a replay entry of their winning ticket for a chance to win a prize in $100,000 Cash Replay Drawings, or 2) a Ronald McDonald House-branded duffel/garment bag. More details will be provided to winners at time of prize win notification.
How it works:Winners of concert tickets are entitled to two general admission tickets to assigned sections at a benefit concert hosted by RMHC-SD at Petco Park stadium on or about Tuesday, March 2, 2021. Winners must reserve their concert tickets by August 15, 2020. Winners can make ticket reservations online or via returned postcard. If tickets are not reserved by the winner by August 15, 2020, they will be considered forfeited; a replacement prize or cash equivalent will not be issued. RMHC-SD will provide further reservation instructions at time of prize win notification. Seat location will be assigned according to value of raffle ticket transaction corresponding to prize win and date of concert ticket reservation. For example, a winner who purchases more raffle tickets and reserves his or her concert tickets earlier will be assigned to a section of the stadium closer to the performance stage compared to a winner who purchased fewer raffle tickets and/or reserved his or her concert tickets at a later date. Concert-related inquiries and seat assignment requests, such as pairing seats with another account or ticket holder, should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Heart & Soul Gala
Details:LETTER FROM THE GALA CHAIRS
We were looking forward to the special opportunity to bring our community together to celebrate and honor the lifechanging work of JFS and the incredible individuals within the organization. We were honoring Brian and Danielle Miller, Marcia Hazan, and HIAS — all of whom are amazing partners with JFS and play important roles in supporting vulnerable children, families, and older adults across San Diego.
At Jewish Family Service, the health and safety of our clients, volunteers, supporters, and staff is our top priority. As you may have anticipated, we are officially announcing the cancellation of the 2020 Heart & Soul Gala.
As JFS adapts its operations to ensure the health and safety of vulnerable community members, it is your support that powers essential home-delivered meals to older adults, no-cost groceries to struggling families, reliable transportation to medical appointments and critical financial assistance for rent payments, childcare, and prescriptions.
