Project Concern International’s Hands Across Borders Gala
PCI:
5151 Murphy Canyon Road
Suite 320
San Diego, CA 92123

Project Concern International hosted another fabulous Gala in 2018 at The Hyatt in La Jolla.

They started the festivities with a silent auction, and VIP cocktail reception. Guests were treated to a photo booth and amazing items on display form the different countries.

The Pulse was on hand to interview the VIP guests and PCI team.

This years award recipients were, Medtronic Leadership Award, given to Spencer Kirk, and the Anne Otterson, Community Connector Award, given to Molly Eldrege.

Molly was chosen to receive the award for her outstanding service to PCI, her dedication to promote philanthropy, and her tireless work to inspire others to serve the community. The Community Connector Award honors the legacy of La Jolla luminary and PCI advocate Anne Otterson, who passed away last year. Anne was a shining example of how inspiring others to do good can change the lives of vulnerable children and families everywhere.

This is PCI’s largest fundraiser of the year and always a great time for a great cause!
