Established in 1990, the Brindis Gala is the signature and premier fundraising event for MANA de San Diego. This memorable evening showcases MANA’s programs, events, milestones and accomplishments. It brings together friends, community leaders, and advocates to celebrate the partners, members and volunteers who have made and continue to make MANA de San Diego the premier Latina organization in San Diego County. All proceeds of this bi-yearly event go to fund MANA’s various programs designed to empower and educate Latinas to become leaders in their communities.
The Brindis Gala offers guests an evening filled with friendship, delicious cuisine, lively musical entertainment, and a diverse silent auction, all while showing commitment to MANA’s mission of “Empowering Latinas through Education, Leadership Development, Community Service and Advocacy.”
