2016 Have A Heart Dinner and Auction
Saturday, February 20, 2016
Portola Hotel & Spa at Monterey Bay
Reception & Silent Auction, 5 pm
Dinner & Live Auction, 6:30 pm
Since its conception in 1997, the Have A Heart for Students Dinner & Auction has raised more than $1 million! And we want to say THANK YOU, because it is the generosity of our community members that got us here. The Have a Heart for Students Dinner & Auction is an annual fundraising event directly benefiting student scholarships at California State University, Monterey Bay. Originally called the "Student Success Auction," Have A Heart began in 1998 as the idea of then-financial aid director Bonnie Brown, who saw a need to create student scholarships at CSUMB.
The fundraiser started as an intimate breakfast in a private home, grew to a wine tasting event with a small ticket price, and is now a four-course seated meal with a silent and live auction, including items and sponsorships from the finest Monterey and Salinas community members. Thanks to dedicated community volunteers like Sue Antle and Leslie Taylor (original committee members), along with Shahin Anable and Marti Myszak, Have A Heart raised more than $180,000 at last year's event.
We hope you'll join us Saturday, February 20, for the 18th Annual Have A Heart for Students Dinner & Auction.
CSUMB Loses a Great Friend, Shahin Anable
CSUMB is sad to share the news that our university lost one of its great friends Wednesday morning. Shahin Anable has been an important part of our community for many years. She has served as the co-chair of the Have a Heart Annual Dinner and Auction and has been active in the Women's Leadership Council since its inception.
With her graceful leadership and persuasive energy, Shahin has been instrumental in securing philanthropic gifts for student scholarships and success. We will miss her and we send our deepest sympathy to her husband Leonard and her family.
