Community Service Spotlights

San Diego Blood Bank

Seltzer Caplan McMahon Vitek is proud to be an active supporter of the San Diego Blood Bank (SDBB), a critical element of San Diego’s healthcare system.

SDBB is dedicated to providing a reliable supply of blood to our community, collecting approximately 100,000 units of blood products annually. An independent, 501(c)(3) non-profit, SDBB serves hospitals in San Diego, Orange, Imperial and Los Angeles counties with blood transfusion products and reference laboratory services. SDBB currently operates six local donor centers and 10 bloodmobiles, hosting approximately 2,000 mobile blood drives each year. SDBB’s Cell Therapy Program provides lifesaving stem cell transplants to patients worldwide.

Junior League of San Diego

Shareholder Andrea Myers has taken our commitment to community service to heart in serving as the Fund Development Director for the Junior League of San Diego, an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Andrea designed and re-launched the organization’s Food & Wine Festival into a new multi-faceted signature fundraiser. Under Andrea’s leadership, The Junior League of San Diego Food and Wine Festival: A Kentucky Derby Affair! drew even more chefs, breweries and wineries from all over the area. Leveraging media partnerships to increase pre-event exposure and giving a greater role to corporate sponsors and partners via year-long contracts, Andrea’s team exceeded expectations by increasing overall revenue by 142 percent over the past three years. Tickets now sell out prior to the event and attendance has doubled. The Food & Wine Festival held annually in May, has been such a success that the efforts of the Junior League of San Diego were nationally recognized at the 93rd Annual Conference of The Association of Junior Leagues International.
