On March 15, at the University Club, The Alexander and Eva Nemeth Foundation was honored to host a festive dinner party. The purpose of the party was to introduce our foundation and most recent projects to the San Diego community.
One of the projects announced during the party was the new Nemeth Follow Up N.I.C.U. Clinic at the Sharp Mary Birch Hospital that will open this fall.
This N.I.C.U. Follow Up Clinic will be assisting the families of pre-term infants to better prepare for the future after their discharge from the N.I.C.U.
Another very large support and sponsorship was directed towards San Diego Zoo, specifically to the Frozen Zoo, where DNA of all species and near extinct animals are being preserved. A few representatives of the animal kingdom from San Diego Zoo were there to entertain the guests.
The Gown Event at Neiman Marcus Fashion Valley Mall was hosted on behalf of Patrons of Prado to benefit the Bucks 4 Buses program. This program serves to transport school age children to Balboa Park. To date, over 134, ooo children have experienced the dynamic educational wonders of art, science, history and culture of the Museums and Institution of the Prado.
In the 2016-2017 school year, over 35,000 children, many from Title I schools in depressed socio-economic areas, were able to participate in this life changing program opening up a whole new world of imagination and exploration for these young minds.
The Opening Night of the masterpiece Turandot, by Giacomo Puccini, was a delight worth waiting for. A night in which the audience was wrapped in the romance and spectacle of the music and incredible voices. Nessum Dorma, just one example of an aria sung by all famous artists from Pavarotti to Aretha Franklin, is once again bringing tears in the eyes, the air becomes electric, and the applauses seem never ending.
Eva and Alexander Nemeth were Opera enthusiasts, and The Nemeth Foundation is honored to keep their legacy alive. For this magnificent event, the Nemeth Foundation was honored to sponsor the Patrons and Cast party, where patrons had the opportunity to meet and mingle with the opera’s stars, directors, and designers.
The Nemeth Foundation is also sponsoring the Busing Program for Student’s Night at the Opera, and we will provide details in a following blog.

Summer is San Diego is a lot of fun! Besides having the beach, the pool, the wonderful hikes in the canyons and natural parks, having THE BEST FRIENDS and spending time with them is really THE treat. Today, after doing some art projects with Rosie, water polo girlfriend and long time BFF, I surprised the girls with a visit to Reena’s Threading Center to get their very first Henna Tattoos.
Reena was very welcoming and warm, sharing with the girls her knowledge of Henna history. She’s using only natural henna ingredients directly imported from India and likes to use her imagination to created the patterns rather than follow the traditional patterns.
Thank you Reena for all making the girls’ visit a day they will always remember! Now, they won’t want to do water polo in fear of washing their tattoos away.
January 18, the date when Jeffery and I got married. Wow, 17 years ago, 2 kids later and yes, a few wrinkles here and there (more here). We like to try new things and new restaurants and so we took the kids to a new place, Sirena Cociana Latina. We actually answered a Facebook invitation from Troy Johnson, San Diego Magazine’s Food Critic to come and taste his cooking! This guy can cook! It’s always fun to follow him and his reviews on food throughout San Diego, but normally those that critic …won’t cook! Well, he did, and I am happy I tried ceviche for the first time ever. I loved the fresh taste, the full palate spices, and loved the atmosphere of the place as well. I could not have been there without taking a few photos, so enjoy and hopefully the images make you hungry enough so you can go and try it for yourself.
HAPPY AND FUN FAMILY WITH REALLY INTERESTING NICKNAMES! (I still believe Dylan, no matter how “Super” Dylan he thinks he is, will get in trouble very soon for calling his son WORM! Yeah, that’s right! The little guy is so cute and so fun and soooooo cool for going on with the nickname…Mushie, is just too cute and gentle, such a little lady! I loved playing with them at the beach. Those are the photos the parents chose and I might just end up adding more. Enjoy!
