Celebration of Independence Gala


Dear Doors of Change Angel:


I am excited to share details of our upcoming Gala with you, and hope you will agree to attend, and/or be a sponsor of this spectacular event.  On May 5th, 2018, Doors of Change will hold its primary fundraising event of the year, the Celebration of Independence Gala.  Doors of Change addresses the heart-breaking issue of youth homelessness, which is an over-represented, but under-publicized segment of our San Diego community.  Doors of Change provides a variety of innovative and successful community-based and residential programs for these young people, and we are seeing amazing results.


This year, we will celebrate moving our youth towards independence with a Cinco de Mayo-themed party, to include cocktails, dinner, dancing, live and silent auctions, and great merriment!  Our Fiesta will be held at the Sheraton Carlsbad Sheraton Resort and Spa, and we hope you will join us.  We would love to have a large and enthusiastic crowd to celebrate the accomplishments of our youth, and also to show appreciation to our amazing Ken Thygerson Difference-Maker Award honoree for this year – Zephyr, and its CEO, Brad Termini. 


Thank you, in advance, for supporting Doors of Change by attending our May 5th Gala.  One-hundred percent of the net proceeds from this event support the hundreds of youth served each year by our agency.  Your investment, very literally, will save lives. Thank you for wanting to help.


Peace & Love,




Jeffrey Sitcov
