Black ties, red carpets and gold records…just a few of the hues that painted the spectacular scene at the 2013 SMPS San Diego A/E/C Rockstar Awards. The local star-studded event featured Interim-Mayor Todd Gloria on the Mic, mint-infused “hair-of-the-dog” at the bar, and delectable delicacies artfully presented by Alchemy to sate even the hungriest competition.
Indeed, the inaugural Awards gala was the place to be seen for A/E/C professionals on August 22nd. It was such a success, in fact, that our Chapter Board of Directors has voted unanimously to set the ball in motion to make this a bi-annual event! Stay tuned for details of the follow-up.
Thank you to everyone that donated to our Charity – The Community Project: Ethiopia! Your individual donations, combined with proceeds from the Awards, Golf and our Holiday party, allowed us to donate almost $5,000 towards their important work developing community facilities in Debre Birhan.
