The Prado at Balboa was the back drop for this year’s BOMA San Diego TOBY &Membership Awards Gala.
Members were greeted by complimentary glasses of champagne, bacon-wrapped shrimp, and bruschetta as they strolled into the outside terrace for the cocktail hour. A photographer wandered about to capture spouses, colleagues, and friends chit-chatting over hor d’oeuvres. After cocktails, members were ushered towards the expertly decorated ballroom; stopping first at the photo booth to take some snapshots (serious & silly) with their entourage.

The Gala officially began with an eloquent speech delivered by BOMA San Diego President, Lynn Hulbert. People were acknowledged and awards were presented as members dined on pomegranate salad, chicken/salmon/risotto followed by a trio of desserts.
Our very own, Jim Dowling, graced the stage twice throughout the night to accept our Silver Sponsorship 2016 award; in addition to, presenting a membership award. His wife, Martha, was also a lucky winner, who was the chosen one to take home the table’s colorful floral centerpiece.
The atmosphere throughout the night was electric; especially as the event wrapped up and members gathered on the dance floor to “raise the roof”. Special shout out the Melanie Bamba with RSI Roofing & Solar, chair of the Special Events Committee, and the rest of the committee members for organizing such a blissful event at the Prado.
