The La Jolla New Generations Rotary Club's “Cupcakes & Cocktails” event invites guests for an afternoon of tasty sweets and delicious drinks in a spacious, lodge-style venue overlooking the beach. Over the course of the event, guests can socialize and compare frosting beards as they nibble on two cupcakes and exchange two drink tickets for cocktails or beers by Blue Moon and Longboard, all for a worthy cause. Listen to the reverberations of live music in the natural lighting of the main room, migrate up to the second-floor deck to get a lofty view of the coast, or step out onto the shaded terrace to enjoy the fresh, summer air amid flowers and park benches. Each guest will also be entered into a raffle for chances to win rewards from an Aveda salon, goodies from Sprinkles Cupcakes, a cash prize, and a lifetime supply of leftover ticket stubs.

Veterans 360 works with recent combat veterans, helping them develop professional and interpersonal skills as they reintegrate into civilian life. Structured daily activities and projects are based around four goals: engagement, healing, education, and employment. When veterans first begin the program, they receive holistic posttraumatic-stress-disorder treatments that can include mentorships and therapy. Through engaging activities, they can learn about wind turbines, help maintain children’s playgrounds, and learn how to surf. Educational programs, meanwhile, help participants prepare for a return to the classroom or provide vocational training for specific careers. Ultimately, veterans can earn certifications in trade skills and work with mentors to find jobs.
