On Sunday March 25 we were happy to sponsor and attend the Soroptimist International High Tea and Fashion show. This beautiful event sold out completely!
More than 400 women (and a few gentlemen) came to support and raise money to help women and children victims of domestic violence.
“What you are doing is saving lives, helping victims of domestic violence fight their way out of darkness, and into the light.” San Diego District Attorney Summer Stephan said.
To mention just a few of the participants in this beautiful event: Iris Mone, San Diego County District Attorney Summer Stephan, News 8 anchor Carlo Cecchetto, Aimee Meals, and of course the very talented Leonard Simpson who amazed us with yet another very charming fashion show.
The Student Night at the Opera Program provides students and their chaperones access to the final dress rehearsal of the mainstage productions. Students can enjoy opera stars singing accompanied by the San Diego Symphony Orchestra, see the cast and chorus in spectacular costumes, watch the backstage set transformations and, on occasion, be introduced to some of the performers and crew who make the productions possible.
The Nemeth Foundation was proud to be sponsoring this program and through its donations more than 7,500 students will be experiencing the magic world of the Opera.
Here are some photos from the last season’s Opera: Florencia en el Amazonas by Daniel Catán.

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.
