Vista, California (6-24-10) – The DEI Holdings Charitable Foundation, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is: “To improve the quality of life for disadvantaged children in the communities in which we do business,” is pleased to announce two major fundraising events happening in August which are both open to the general public:

Charity Gala Dinner: To be held on Sunday night August 22 at the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa, the DEI Holdings Charity Gala will honor Darrell & Kathy Issa for their many charitable activities through the Issa Family Foundation. There will be an extensive Silent Auction. Seats at the Gala are now available at $250 each, or tables of 10 for $2,000. To reserve your space, please e-mail or call (760) 599-1390.

Charity Golf Tournament: To be held the next morning, Monday August 23 at Torrey Pines, the Charity Golf Tournament will be followed by lunch on the Arroyo Terrace, where Congressman Issa is again expected to speak. Golfers are welcome at $375 each. To reserve your space, please e-mail or call (760) 599-1390.

Since 2003, the DEI Holdings Charitable Foundation has raised nearly two million dollars, and has disbursed hundreds of thousands of dollars to multiple children’s charities, helping tens of thousands of children in need. Beneficiaries include the Boys & Girls Clubs of Vista, Oceanside, San Clemente and Temecula, CA that support a safe place for kids to learn and grow; Casa de Amparo, San Diego, CA that treats and prevents child abuse and neglect; and North County Solutions for Change, San Diego, CA that provides solutions for homeless children. The Foundation has also reacted to natural disasters around the world by donating to earthquake relief in China, typhoon relief in Taiwan and, most recently, to earthquake relief in Haiti, helping families rebuild their lives after these devastations.

The DEI Holdings Charitable Foundation has made it possible for beneficiaries to upgrade their facilities, purchase much needed supplies, and most importantly, help underprivileged children. The Foundation’s goal is to continue to distribute roughly half of all funds raised in any year directly to carefully screened and deserving organizations that share the goal of helping impoverished children, while the balance of the funds are invested to provide a perpetual annuity to allow the Foundation to continue to generously donate to these worthy causes for many years to come.
