What We Believe
We at the National Cheers Foundation believe in “Celebrating Life through Life’s Celebrations.” It is our mission to empower women to live life with vitality, free from the five primary health threats, which are heart disease, mental illness, cancer, osteoporosis and autoimmune diseases. We intend to raise funds in support of organizations that endeavor to help women improve their lives through care, health, education, empowerment, research and support.
What We Do
The National Cheers Foundation was established in the summer of 2012 by a group of caring professionals and community leaders in La Jolla, California. Facilitated by our annual gala and “joie de vivre” grant program, the foundation raises funds to support medical research and health institutions, health advocacy groups and outreach programs, and has developed a resource and educational program that offers to women the ability to empower themselves.
We Give Thanks
We are currently interviewing applications for our annual round of funding. Non-profits throughout San Diego County are invited to apply for our annual grants through January 31st, please visit our Grant Page for details. Please be assured that these submissions are thoroughly vetted and members of our grants team personally do onsite visits for each applicant that meets our Women’s Health criteria.

We give thanks to our sponsors who generously support our gala. This allows us to maximize our contributions to all our beneficiaries.

2017 Cheers Gala

Celebrates the National Cheer’s 5th Year Anniversary


5.30pm- 10.00pm


The National Cheers Foundation is thrilled to have board member Diana Szekely as the Chair for this year’s fifth annual celebration. Diane is embracing her Rancho La Puerta’s mission of health, harmony and a love of life and nature for this year’s Cheers Celebration.  As such, we are going green this year too and taking all registrations online.

At Valle De Guadalupe guests will toast to our five years and be tantalized with Mexican delicacies co-created by Rancho La Puerta’s chef partnering with Chef Bernard, the Beach Club’s chef. Specialty entertainment From Rancho La Puerta will be brought up to serenade those lucky enough to attend. Diane brings her wonderful experiences at Rancho La Puerta and draws on them to artfully transform the Club’s golf course into a picturesque and authentic Mexican Fiesta, strew with long wooden tables embellished with candles and flowers with white lights over head, thus creating a romantic setting where guests can sip wines from Valle de Guadalupe, taste tequilas and enjoy fresh and healthy cuisine artfully created by the two fabulous chefs…Ole!

Guests will enjoy Complimentary Wines and Tequila tastings from Valle De Guadalupe during our silent auction with non-hosted premium bars available all evening.

We generate funds at the gala through our auctions, through our donation drawing and through our sponsorship campaign program.

We expect two hundred plus guests to enjoy dinning and dancing while helping raise money for women’s health!
