Join The Center in 2021 for our Signature Fundraising Events
Tantrums & Tiaras
Tantrums & Tiaras is an event like no other! A high-quality spoof of beauty pageants complete with extravagant costumes, divine “ladies”, and a “talent” showcase. Local companies sponsor male contestants, none of whom have any pageant experience, as they compete to be crowned the next community Queen! In collaboration with Mo’s Universe Group, it’s an evening of wigs, glitter, and hilarity, all for a great cause! Join the fun and cheer for your local favorites. Proceeds benefit theprograms and services of The Center.

Each year, thousands of San Diegans Dine Out to Fight HIV. Dining Out for Life® is an international fundraising event involving the generous participation of restaurants throughout San Diego County.
