San Diego County Gun Owners PAC has Rescheduled its 2020 Second Amendment Celebration Dinner from August to October

San Diego CA— The San Diego County Gun Owners PAC (SDCGO), a political action committee promoting Second Amendment rights in San Diego County, has announced a new date for its Second Amendment Celebration Dinner, an annual fundraiser benefiting Second Amendment advocacy. The date has changed from Saturday, Aug. 15 to Saturday, Oct. 3.
The dinner will be held in October at the same venue planned for the August date, the Town and Country Resort Hotel and Convention Center in Mission Valley, 500 Hotel Circle North, San Diego. The dinner on Aug. 15 was expected to be held outside, according to Michael Schwartz, executive director, SDCGO.
“Out of an abundance of caution, after months of staying in touch with the staff at the Town and Country Hotel, in cooperation with our SDCGO staff, we moved the entire Second Amendment celebration dinner, scheduled for Aug. 15, to an outdoor, on-site location because there is no county health restriction limiting the number of outdoor dinner guests,” said Schwartz. “With an outdoor dinner, we were confident that we would be in compliance with all state, county and city regulations. And, we were not going to be pressured by unfounded threats from elected officials who oppose our fundraiser in support of the Second Amendment because of their own politically based objections.
“However, for a variety of reasons, including our desire to keep the focus of the event on our mission and to protect the integrity of the event, we decided to reschedule the event from Aug. 15 to Oct. 3. We wanted to be sensitive to the feelings of some of our older members who were concerned that our adherence to masks and social distancing would not be enough. Also, the later date gives us even more opportunities to accommodate more guests. We already had 750 reservations for Aug. 15, and we expected the final attendance figure to be even higher. Now, at our dinner on the first Saturday in October, it’s possible that we might reach 1,000 people in attendance.”
Schwartz continued: “Our prudence and precaution should not be viewed as a sign of panic or fearfulness. We are not giving up and we will not be intimidated or dissuaded because of our frustration with California politicians. We’re in this together, and together, we will win. During this year of unprecedented weirdness, I have promised our 2,000-plus members that our Second Amendment Celebration dinner will not be canceled and we will work hard to make it an amazing, good time. It will be an evening of incredible inspiration and hope for the future of the Second Amendment and the guaranteed right to keep and bear arms. It will be worth the delay. We’re inviting everyone who believes in the U.S. Constitution and the Second Amendment to join us on Oct. 3 and help us change California from the bottom up.”
The fundraising dinner on Oct. 3, the PAC’s fifth annual, will be open to the public. Scheduled activities at the fundraiser will include a silent and live auction, speakers and awards presented to gun shops, SDCGO members and politicians. Attendees will include gun sports and hunting enthusiasts, politicians, Second Amendment advocates and gun control opponents.
Tickets begin at $99 per person. Tickets must be purchased in advance. No tickets will be sold at the door. For more information, including sponsorship information, visit www.gunprom.com. Questions also can be emailed to Wendy Hauffen at info@sdcgo.org or wendy@sdcgo.org.
While every U.S. state has a Second Amendment PAC, along with several nationwide gun rights PACs, SDCGO is believed to be America’s first strictly local, countywide Second Amendment advocacy organization. The local PAC features a diverse and inclusive membership with representatives from the LGBT, Latino, African American, Asian and Pacific Islander communities.
Founded in 2015, the San Diego County Gun Owners is a registered political action committee (FPPC ID #1379388) and advocacy organization focused on organizing the gun industry and community and protecting the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment right to bear arms. With a membership exceeding 2,000 individuals, the PAC provides news and information on new gun laws and Second Amendment advocacy. Its sponsored events include gun safety classes, small gun shows, sporting clay shoots, social gatherings and pistol, rifle and shotgun experiences taught by professional instructors.
