SDCCU, San Diego’s largest locally-owned financial institution, was a sponsor of the American Diabetes Association’s Father of the Year Awards in San Diego, a fundraiser that generated more than $200,000 in donations for diabetes research and programs and services for people with diabetes.

Held June 12 at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla, the 250 guests honored four local fathers with 2014 Father of the Year awards. Honorees included: Allan Shaw, community leader and retired president/CEO of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s San Diego-based Pacific South Coast Chapter; Rick Reeder, executive managing director, Cassidy Turley San Diego Capital Markets Group; Jim Stone, managing associate, Pollakov Financial Group; Thomas Wornham, chairman, San Diego County Water Authority.
“We are proud to support the American Diabetes Association and its Father of the Year awards program that honors fathers who have demonstrated the ability to balance their personal lives, serve as role models of strength, commitment and love for their children and help make positive contributions to their families and communities,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Halleck.
The New York-based Father’s Day Council, which began the awards program in 1942, designated the ADA as its charity partner in 1999. In 2004, the San Diego ADA office began its Father of the Year awards program. Over the past 11 years in San Diego, the awards program has generated more than $2 million in donations.
The American Diabetes Association is just one of the more than 75 non-profit organizations and community events supported annually by SDCCU.
