April 2004 (San Diego)--More than 400 people from throughout San Diego and East County attended the 48th annual Children’s Ball. Held at the U.S. Grant Hotel in downtown San Diego, this elegant gathering benefitted the Boys and Girls Clubs of East County.
This year, the event honored Mary Alice and Ron Brady (photo, right), founders of the Brady Companies which recently donated $3 million to the Boys and Girls Clubs of East County. A new Brady Family Clubhouse on the campus of La Mesa Middle School will be named in their honor. The Boys and Girls Clubs of East County serve over 3,000 children every year.
