CECO to Make Annual Awards

The San Diego County Employees’ Charitable Organization (CECO) Annual Awards Breakfast will be held tomorrow morning at the Kimball Senior Center in National City.

Seventy-six programs representing seventy local non-profit organizations, along with the CECO Employee Crisis Fund, will receive checks totaling $227,739. All of this money has been donated by employees and retirees of the County of San Diego and San Diego Superior Court

Representatives from charitable organizations including Rady Children’s Hospital (Anderson Center), Mama’s Kitchen, and Crash Inc. will be present to receive their individual checks.

CECO has been supporting local non-profit groups by way of grants since 1956 and has distributed millions to the local community since its inception.  The Annual Awards Breakfast is CECO’s way of recognizing the efforts of grant recipients, who continue to improve the health and well being of San Diego residents.

The breakfast begins at 7:30 am with a welcome address by CECO president, John Rasmussen. The event key note speaker is special guest Nick Macchione, County Health & Human Services Director. For more information, please contact Tracy Watkins at (858) 505-6390.
