LAUNCH 2020 update

Dear Friend of Rob Benzon Foundation,

We hope you and your loved ones are staying safe during these difficult and unprecedented times. We have been hopeful that the LAUNCH event could be held this year in some manner. However, with the cancellation of San Diego Pride and continued uncertainties of when we will be able to gather together as a community in any meaningful numbers, we have made the disappointing but necessary decision to cancel our annual LAUNCH event for 2020. As one of our critical Host Committee Supporters we wanted to let you know directly.

This would have been our 21st year of hosting this fundraiser to support the work of the Foundation, so while we’re disappointed that we will not be able to celebrate together this summer, we want you to know that we are still committed to the Foundation’s mission to provide unexpected help and hope to those in need in our San Diego community throughout 2020 and beyond. Thanks to generous supporters like you throughout the years, we’ve been able to donate more than $300,000 to needy individuals and worthwhile organizations as part of our Foundation’s mission. Here’s a link to our grants page with more details on what we’ve been able to do together. Please do not forget if you hear of any needs that meet our mission, please send them our way.

Thank you for your continued support of our organization and the annual LAUNCH event. We look forward to resuming our event in 2021 with a renewed energy and excitement that we anticipate the new year will bring. Thanks again and stay safe.
