San Diego County Credit Union, San Diego’s largest locally-owned financial institution, was a sponsor of the 39th annual Home of Guiding Hands (HGH) Gala, a recent fundraiser that generated more than $100,000 in donations for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
More than 350 guests attended the HGH Gala held June 1 at the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego. Leading the fundraiser’s live auction was Sean Kelly of TruTV’s “Storage Hunters”. This year’s Gala honoree was Frank Gerberding, volunteer coordinator of HGH’s golf tournament. Under Gerberding’s leadership over the past 30 years, the annual golf tournament has generated more than $1 million in donations, HGH officials said.
SDCCU has been a longtime supporter of HGH, a non-profit organization that provides services, training and advocacy for people with developmental disabilities. Services are provided to approximately 800 adults and children with disabilities including intellectual disabilities, epilepsy, cerebral palsy and autism. Support is provided to these individuals who are living independently in their own homes and communities of choice in East San Diego County, along with residents of 31 homes in the San Diego area communities of El Cajon, Lakeside, San Carlos and Santee.
