The Celebrating Coronado History Gala will be held March 18, 2017 at the Coronado Island Marriott and Spa. The Gala is the Coronado Historical Association’s biggest fundraiser of the year and is how the many important programs are funded. The Coronado Historical Association invites the community to celebrate Coronado’s history, and share in the excitement and effort of maintaining Coronado’s heritage. The theme this year is, Cottages to Castles…and the stories people tell.
The evening will begin with a hosted champagne reception and exciting silent auction. A gourmet dinner will follow ushered in with the music of Coronado resident Marilyn Rees. The emcee for the evening will be KPBS host Elsa Sevilla. Jim Shirey will lead the live auction and raise the paddle. Coronado’s own Gerry MacCartee and Nancy Cobb will delight once again with their presentation Cottages, Castles and Condominiums: A look back at Coronado homes. The event artwork was generously created by local artist Helen Moutes.
Honorary Co-Chairs of the event are Bob and Gail Bardin and Drs. Dennis and Holly Nappen. Current CHA Board of Directors member Debbie Bell is this years Event Chair. The event committee includes Lynda Willkie (Co-Chair), Jami Teagle-Burgos, Patt Flynn, Bobbi O’Connor, Donna Ball and Britt Zeller.
