Laurels for Leaders 62nd Annual Luncheon
The Washington-Lincoln Laurels for Leaders luncheon is held in February each year around the time of the birthdays of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Laurels for Leaders was established in 1957 as a way of honoring and recognizing the achievements of ASB presidents of San Diego County high schools.
Each ASB president is seated with other ASB presidents and sponsors from the community, in order to facilitate networking and building connections. School staff, parents and guests are welcome to attend the luncheon and sit in a special section in order to observe their students being honored.

The California Center for the Arts and EcoLife Conservation presents
The California Condor Recovery Program.
Join us for an evening as Bill Toone, Executive Director and Founder of EcoLife Conservation, speaks about North America’s largest flying and most endangered bird, The California condor. When the California Condor Recovery Program was launched in the early 1980s there were fewer than 25 California condors left in the world. With the help of hard-working scientists at the San Diego Zoo the condor is back from the brink of total extinction. Learn more about the life-cycle, habitat, and threats to condors and the amazing recovery program led by Bill.

Program: Nan Sterman with Water Wise
THINK A WATERWISE GARDEN IS BROWN, LIFELESS & COLORLESS?
Nothing could be further from the truth!
Low water gardens are bright, brilliant, colorful gardens with as much interest, variety and wildlife – and in some ways even more – as any other gardens.
Let Nan Sterman show you how to meet the challenges of gardening in California by:
Creating sustainable gardens in California's dry, Mediterreanean climate
Planting beautiful plants, beautifully suited to California gardens
Growing organic fruits, vegetables, and herbs
Removing and replacing lawn with beautiful, waterwise gardens
This is what the Waterwise Gardener is all about.
What began more than a decade ago as a grassroots effort backed by the fire service, the Burn Institute’s countywide Boot Drive has become a hallmark fundraiser for the organization, raising over $200,000 for BI programs and services in 2018!
Each year, hundreds of uniformed firefighters from fire departments all over San Diego County come together for a common goal, hopping aboard their engines to meet at intersections within their communities to collect donations in their boots during the morning and evening commutes. And each year passing motorists help to fill those boots with their spare change — ones, fives, twenties – even $100 bills. No matter the economy or weather, San Diegans have always given generously.
Proceeds benefit Burn Institute fire and burn prevention education programs and burn survivor support programs such as Camp Beyond the Scars for burn-injured children, 8-17 years. Celebrating its 29th season, the Burn Institute’s unique camp program has provided a safe place for many hundreds of young burn survivors to share their experiences in a supportive camp environment.
Sponsored by the San Diego–Imperial County Fire Fighters Advisory Council and the San Diego County Fire Chiefs’ Association, the Burn Institute’s 20th Annual Firefighter Boot Drive is the organization’s largest one-day fundraiser. All of the funds raised through the Boot Drive will stay in San Diego County. As always, the top fire department from each region will win the Burn Institute’s highly-coveted bronze Boot Drive trophy.
When: May 2, 2019
Each year, the Burn Institute pays tribute to individuals in our community who have risked their own lives in an effort to save another from burn injury or death.
In 1974, members of a local support group for burn survivors called “Burns Recovered” approached the Burn Institute with the idea of honoring these courageous citizens. Many of the burn survivors had been rescued by such heroic individuals, and wanted to publicly express their strong appreciation. The Burn Institute supported the concept and has continued to present the award for the past 40 years. The Annual Spirit of Courage Awards banquet is a community service of the Burn Institute.
Citizens are nominated by local fire service and law enforcement agencies. Then a Burn Institute board committee composed of fire service personnel and other professionals select the final recipients. The criteria for selection is:
The nominee must have performed an exceptionally courageous act attempting to save another person from death or serious injury to burns from any source – fire, chemical or electrical.
The rescue attempt must have involved a significant degree of personal risk – exposure to either death or severe injury.
Firefighters and law enforcement personnel are eligible for this award but must have displayed a level of commitment not required or expected in the performance of their daily duties.
