SAN DIEGO, CA — (March 17, 2015) On March 20, 2015, Family Health Centers of San Diego’s (FHCSD) beloved and long-standing community luncheon, Spirit of the Barrio, will tackle the high-profile topic of a potential new football stadium, and how the project could impact the city’s economy, job development and the city’s image.

Presented by U.S. Bank and ABC 10 News, guest speakers include San Diego City Councilmember David Alvarez and U.S. Bank San Diego Market President Steve Stuckey. Neither a debate nor a sales pitch, the presentation promises to be dynamic and informative.

Since 1986, Spirit of the Barrio has featured interesting topics, raised awareness about FHCSD’s mission to provide high-quality care to underserved communities across San Diego, and served legendary tamales to approximately 400-600 supporters. Past speakers include Mayor Jerry Sanders, world-famous artists and local athletes. Spirit of the Barrio is sponsored, in part, by United Port of San Diego, Rancho Mesa Insurance Services, Inc., Sharp Healthcare, Scripps Health and the Viejas Band of Kumeyaay Indians.

Spirit of the Barrio will take place on Friday, March 20, 2015 from 11:30am – 1:00pm at the Logan Heights Family Health Center (1809 National Avenue, San Diego CA 92113). It is open to the public and costs $25/per person. Attendees are encouraged to bring a children’s book to donate to FHCSD’s pediatric services, and everyone will receive a complimentary raffle ticket to enter a chance to win fabulous prizes.
