HSMAI San Diego's Annual Holiday Luncheon and 2015 Board of Directors Introduction


Holiday Wonder on Wheels
SD Bike Build & Holiday Luncheon

A new President, a new Board, donated bicycles for the Toys for Tots program, and a wonderful Holiday lunch at Wang's.  What a special feeling to be able to participate and give deserving kids a gift they'll never forget! Great way to spread Holiday Cheer this Holiday Season...

The HSMAI San Diego Board thanks you for attending and is looking forward to seeing you again next year.  We'll be back on January 13th at the Westin Gaslamp for our annual State of Industry Address, so mark your calendars now.
