United Way of San Diego

Centennial Gala

Before the Covid-19 pandemic hit the United States, the United Way of San Diego was busy planning a gala for their centennial year. As the possibility lessened for an in-person event in 2020, our team swiftly assisted in shifting their event and concept to a virtual celebration.

Utilizing local production partners and enacting social distancing precautions, the team was able to execute a beautifully produced in-studio broadcast and livestream to over 100+ attendees. The engaging hosts and distinguished community members were able to reflect on important issues and fundraise to still meet goals set for the year. The Right Hand Events team assisted with finding the proper fundraising solution, offering creative ideas to recognize sponsors, managed vendors, and executed overall event logistics.
