As a co-sponsor of the 2017 Lunar New Year Multi-cultural Charity Gala Jasmine is happy to announce that we had over 380 participants at the event and have raised a net income of $10,164.00 to support the charity and humanitarian projects of San Diego United Lions Club. Donations are on their way to The Monarch School of San Diego, Education for Humanity/Americans Helping Asian Children and American Chinese Cultural and Education Foundation to support the very much needed education of underprivileged children in order to provide a life changing opportunity for the children and their families. Thank you!
Due to the immediate needs of the people of Nepal affected by the 7.8 magnitude Nepal earthquake that hit their country recently, our event organizers have decided to re-direct our efforts from our previously planned event to support the Nepalese. Thank you for your support and understanding of the changes. Additional details regarding the event are to come! Please stay posted.

Dear San Diegans,
As in past natural disasters where we raised funds for relief and rehabilitation, the San Diego Lions and Friends will again organize a fundraising dinner at Jasmine Seafood Restaurant on May 22, 2015 at six o’clock in the evening.
Aware of your humanitarian heart, we are appealing for you to have a table for your friends and/or organization for $450 per table for 10 persons or $50 per person. The management of Jasmine Seafood Restaurant has generously offered to donate 70% of the gross proceeds to the Nepal Earthquake Relief.
We believe that “To whom much is given, much is expected”. We hope that you are with us in giving significance to this biblical truism.
Our Nepalese friends are crying for help, let’s help them!
