The Uptown Update
Uptown's Annual Gala is back! On Saturday, October 16th, 2021, join us for An Evening Under the Harvest Moon.
After a long hiatus, we are so excited to announce that we will be hosting our annual gala at the Bankers Hill Club on Saturday, October 16th, 2021!

The evening will feature cocktails, a silent auction, dinner, and musical stylings by San Diego's own Tre' Tenore. Early bird tickets are $90, tickets purchased after October 1st are $100.

All proceeds from the gala will aid the continuation of Uptown's vital work in the North Park community, assisting our neighbors through providing access to food, clothing, mail, healthcare, and social services.

Join us for a celebration of the incredible impact our collective work has had in the North Park Community and preparation for the year to come! Reserve your seat at the table today! We can't wait to see you there.

Schedule of events, silent auction, and dinner menu for the evening can be found here.
Thank You! To Mission Hills United Church of Christ for their generous donation. In June, Lisa Streibing delivered towels, socks, underwear, backpacks and T-shirts to Uptown CSC. These items were collected from the church members of Mission Hills United Church of Christ.

Many thanks to all the donors that made this contribution possible. These items are greatly appreciated and so essential for the people we serve.

What an incredible outpouring of donations and community in solidarity with our neighbors in need. Thank you to all who contributed, sponsored, and walked on May 15th, 2021 with us!

Thanks to you, your dedication, and your generosity, over $9,000 was raised to directly benefit Uptown's services in the North Park Community. These funds directly sustain our services, including Uptown's emergency food pantry, in-kind donations, mail services, and social services.
