Cocktails & Conversation

Adding a twist to our traditional Cocktails and Conversation gatherings, St. Germaine Children’s Charity hosted a lively event at a local brewery to bring further awareness to our members and guests of child abuse and neglect in the San Diego community. Bay City Brewery owners, Andrea and Greg Anderson, opened their brewery to more than 40 guests to enjoy unique beers and sample delicious street tacos from The Taco Guy. The event was further highlighted by one of our community leaders in the prevention of child abuse and neglect, Tamara Fleck-Meyers, executive director of Casa de Amparo in the San Marcos area. Tamara discussed the many supportive programs her organization provides to at-risk families and children, including the latest steps they are taking to prevent the growing threat of sex trafficking. Following a detailed video and Q&A, guests were educated on how they best can contribute to Casa de Amparo. Anyone interested in donating new household and baby items for young mothers can respond directly to the St. Germaine website.
The next event for St Germaine will be our annual luncheon on June 6, 2018, at the La Jolla Country Club. Watch your email for an invitation arriving soon!

St. Germaine Children’s Charity is a California nonprofit corporation comprised of approximately 300 members committed to stopping child abuse and improving the lives of abused and neglected children in San Diego. Formerly known as St. Germaine Auxiliary to the Child Abuse Prevention Foundation, we assumed the responsibilities of our own 501(c)(3) organization in August 2006.
