The Coronado Historical Association’s Gala, “Celebrating Coronado History”, Saturday night at the Coronado Island Marriott was a grand evening indeed. Everything from the placards on the tables for the silent auction to dessert was first class. Particularly, Gerry MacCartee and Nancy Cobb’s historical presentation was fun, educational and entertaining. Fundraising appeared to be very successful at the live auction also. Look out the rest of Coronado’s many swank fundraising events. The bar has been raised! Nancy Helsper and Carol Raiter as co-chairs outdid themselves for a worthy cause.
