We are excited our second annual Launching Leaders Luncheon is coming up on Friday, May 13. PFLAG SDC and the San Diego Human Dignity Foundation will be awarding nine scholarships to high school seniors, full-time graduate and undergraduate students. The recipients of the Harvey Milk Memorial Scholarships will be also awarded at that time. The keynote speaker is Fernando Lopez, Director of Operations for San Diego LGBT Pride. The event is from 11:30 am -2:00 pm at the McMillin Event Center at Liberty Station, 2875 Dewey Road in Point Loma. Funds raised will enable PFLAG SDC to provide more scholarships in the future.
The Scholarship Committee, ably chaired by Hilary Flocke, has worked diligently choosing recipients. There were 32 qualified applicants and it was difficult narrowing the list down to eight. We were able to offer a ninth scholarship with the generosity of donations of $500 each from Phyllis Van Wanseele and Lonnie Brunini. Anyone who wishes to donate to a scholarship, please send a check made payable to San Diego Human Dignity Foundation and mail it to:
Attn: PFLAG Scholarship Fund, Des Kelly

San Diego, CA 92106.
To buy individual tickets at $60 or if you want to gather your buddies together and chip in for a table of eight, it’s $400 and can be purchased at pflag.sdhdf.org.
