Please join us for UPAC’s 50th Anniversary Gala to be held in the Nautilus Room at the Coronado Community Center, on Thursday, May 16th at 5:30pm-10:00pm.

This event is highlighting UPAC’s impact in San Diego County over the span of 5 decades.  Attendees will begin their evening by indulging in various hors d’oeuvres and libations overlooking Coronado Bay. After cocktail hour, photo opportunities, and chatting among friends, the event will shift inside to cultural entertainment, a live auction, and a silent auction featuring an art exhibit cataloged by UPAC youth and EMASS clubhouse members. Then, the Gala will showcase an elevated family-style dinner curated by UPAC Executive Chef, Eduardo Gochicoa, and the youth employed at Neighborhood Café and Timmy’s Place. Each dish represents a unique culture that celebrates vibrant diversity. Through this event, we bridge cross-cultural understanding, connect partners and friends with UPAC’s mission, and raise funds for our vital programs and services.

Tickets are $250 each and sponsorship opportunities are available for this event! To learn more or become a sponsor, contact Katie Boatman at or call 918-630-7255.
