    About the Ball

    Las Patronas is thrilled to celebrate its seventy-fifth year of fundraising for worthy San Diego nonprofit organizations by welcoming supporters and guests to our annual event at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club. 

    For one evening in August, we transform the venue into the backdrop for a magical black-tie event. Guests will be treated to an exceptionally fun night of dining and dancing under the stars in celebration of our nonprofit beneficiaries and generous supporters. 

    Last year, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Las Patronas made the difficult decision to hold a virtual Jewel Ball but was still able to raise $941,562 for our beneficiaries, who need the assistance more than ever.

     first Jewel Ball gala was held in 1947 – attracting two hundred guests and raising $1,357. At that time, Las Patronas was made up of fourteen members who contributed handmade ball decorations. Today, the fifty active members of Las Patronas proudly carry on the traditions of our founding members. We still build the design elements by hand and transport them, piece by piece, to the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club to ultimately create one of San Diego’s best fêtes, the Jewel Ball.

    As we celebrate our seventy-fifth year of serving the San Diego Community, Las Patronas is working hard to continue to bring much needed funds to our worthy beneficiaries, and also to plan for our 75th Anniversary Jewel Ball, Diamonds Are Forever! 

    In classic James Bond style, Diamonds Are Forever will exude elegance, exhilaration, excitement, and intrigue, while incorporating a nod to the past. Arrive dressed to kill, and you will be taken on a mission like you’ve never experienced . . . and won’t soon forget. Think mystery, action, glamour, and sophistication. Think Bond, and prepare to be blown away.

    We thank you for your continued support of our work to help those in need in San Diego County and we look forward to safely welcoming you back to the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club on August 7, 2021

    History of Saved in America

    A California Non- Profit Organization of Former Police Officers and Navy SEALs turned Licensed Private Investigators who assist Parents and Law Enforcement in locating Missing & Exploited Children

    Founder: Pastor Joseph A. Travers, CPI, CCDI, CMECI

    On September 21, 2009 I was reading an article from the Orange County Register, “Retired Terror Hunters Hope to End Child Sex Slavery” (in foreign countries). This brought to mind the news I heard recently regarding a missing 17-year-old girl who left her parent’s home in New York. Brittanee Drexel was last seen in a hotel video in South Carolina on April 25th. Where was she? (In August 2016 the FBI reported that Brittanee was taken from the hotel in Myrtle Beach by a gang member pimp to a stash house in North Carolina for several days then repeatedly raped by gang members, shot dead and fed to alligators.)

    As a former Police Detective and current Licensed Private Investigator, I have seen countless cases of missing children. The statistics are grim and disheartening. I knew many children ended up being trafficked into human slavery and felt compelled to meet the “Terror Hunters”, to see if there was a way to perform these rescues here in the United States. I immediately made arrangements to meet these former special operations ‘Terror Hunters’. Through a series of meetings, I met a former Navy SEAL, Jeff Bramstedt who, along with Trial Attorney Alexandria Phillips, helped form Saved In America (SIA). It was decided after several meetings and operational discussions that Saved In America would focus on preventing gangbanger/pimp/predator/slave traders from securing girls to traffic here in the United States. This meant targeting children before they could be trafficked. 

    Saved in America would find the missing children, the runaways like Brittanee. In the summer of 2014 I was introduced to Bill Lynch of the Lynch Foundation for Children, who graciously funded our first operation. In December 2014 SIA recovered its first child.The Saved in America team model consists of three pillars:

    1. We never charge parents/ guardians to find their children. 
    2. We do this voluntarily, refusing pay. 
    3. We only use former Special Operators and retired/ current Police Detectives who become Licensed and Insured Private Investigators.

    Saved in America currently has over 30 operators; all licensed and insured Private Investigators consisting of former Navy SEALs, Marine Recon Raiders, British SAS, and retired Police Officers. In addition, SIA has an Executive Director, Legal Director, Case Manager, Community Outreach/ Events Coordinator, Training and Child Rehabilitation Director, Social Networking Investigator, Licensed Drone Operators and State Licensed Firearms Instructors. 

    Since our initial operation in December 2014 Saved in America has performed 137 successful child recoveries (out of 137 cases). The approach and techniques used by Saved in America help guide the rest of the nation on how to stop child sex trafficking before it happens, by focusing on runaway and missing children. Saved In America has taught it’s investigative techniques to the Human Smuggling & Trafficking Center, Washington, DC, Licensed Investigator Associations in Texas, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Alabama, and, for the Naval Special Warfare Command in Coronado, California.

    Thank you ‘Terror Hunters’ for your inspiration and Bill Lynch for your generous heart in the remembrance of Brittanee Drexel, who started and continues to drive Saved in America’s work. On November 1, 2018 at the 2nd annual Saved In America ‘Child Saved Not Sold event in Del Mar, California, Saved In America awarded its first ‘Brittanee Drexel Scholarship’ to a survivor of Child Sex Trafficking. Brittanee’s mother Dawn presented the award. 

    The Saved in America story has been published in a book titled - “Investigation of Missing & Exploited Children: The Gateway of Child Sex Trafficking, 2nd Edition October 2018. Available for purchase here.
