Las Patronas Beneficiary Luncheon 2008
~ at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club ~
January 16th, 2008 was cheery for many great causes. It was sunny. But first and foremost, it was the annual beneficiary luncheon day where Las Patronas, the formidable female force behind the Jewel Ball, hand out big checks to major designated San Diego organizations.
The luncheon took place at the exquisite oceanfront property of the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club.

2007 Jewel Ball Chair Kathryn Stephens had this to say. “It was an honor to chair ARTRAGEOUS Jewel Ball 2007 and a privilege to personally hand our 11 Beneficiaries their checks from the Ball!”
Among the major beneficiaries were Camp Fire USA San Diego and Imperial Counties Council, The Old Globe, the Helen Woodward Animal Center, Family Health Centers of San Diego, Rady Children’s Hospital – San Diego, the USS Midway Museum, The San Diego Museum of Art, St. Paul’s Retirement Homes Foundation, University of San Diego School of Leadership and Education Sciences, Urban Corps of San Diego County, Voices for Children, and a special grant to the UCSD Regional Burn Center.
Kathryn Stephens explained, “we were able to fund a special grant to the UCSD Regional Burn Center in response to the recent San Diego wildfires. The Total Contact Mask we funded will provide burn mask scanning equipment for the treatment of burns to current and future fire victims.
It was an ARTRAGEOUSLY successful year and the luncheon to honor our Beneficiaries was the final celebration!”
