PEERS Network’s 5th Annual Black Tie Gala Raises $335,000 for the Challenged Athletes Foundation
On Saturday, September 28, the PEERS Network 5th Annual Black Tie Gala welcomed a sold-out crowd to raise $335,000 for the Challenged Athletes Foundation, a San Diego-based non-profit whose mission is to provide individuals with permanent physical disabilities the support they need to get active and involved in sports. The gala, which was held at the private La Jolla Farms home of Steven and Lisa Altman, was hosted by the PEERS Network, a group of San Diego entrepreneurs whose mission is to give back to the local community.
“We are proud to host what has become known as ‘the social event of the year’ to bring together the top influencers of San Diego in support of impactful local organizations,” said Guiseppe Ciuffa, PEERS Network board member and event co-chair. “The Challenged Athletes Foundation helps thousands of individuals each year, locally and around the world, to succeed in sports – and in life. It is an honor to do our part to support their mission.”
More than 430 attendees supported the formal affair which honored Dr. David Smotrich, founder of La Jolla IVF, and welcomed professional athletes and VIPs like Bill Walton, Tony Hawk and John Carney. The evening begn with a special VIP reception where attendees were adorned in fine jewelry and watches from K. Brunini. Guests enjoyed cutting-edge gourmet cuisine from chefs like Giuseppe Fine Catering, Beaumont Eatery and CUSP at more than a dozen gourmet food stations with treats from PURE Cupcakes.
The money raised at the 5th Annual PEERS Network Black Tie Gala will provide funding for expensive adaptive equipment (like running prosthetics and handcycles), training and competition expenses to help overcome the financial barriers that often keep challenged athletes on the sidelines. “We’re tremendously grateful to the PEERS Network for selecting CAF as the benefiting charity of this fabulous fundraising event,” said Virginia Tinley, Executive Director of the Challenged Athletes Foundation. “As a charity started right here in San Diego that is now celebrating its 20th anniversary, it is wonderful to see the local community come together to celebrate the challenged athletes we support.” Read more

Many Americans who struggle with technology jokingly refer to themselves as computer-illiterate. And throughout the United States, it is common to only speak one or two languages. This is in stark contrast to Tim Doner, a New York teenager who has a YouTube video in which he speaks 20 languages.
A few of Tim’s first learned foreign languages included French, Latin, Hebrew and Arabic. Now, the teen speaks many more with varying levels of fluency. He learns from books, teachers, classes, friends, and practices his languages in NY and on Skype.
To watch Tim speak 20 languages, click the video below.

How do you think Internet speeds in the United States rate worldwide? Would you guess that USA has the fastest speed? Top 5? Top 10?
USA actually ranks 9th in Internet speed. In Akamai’s “State of the Internet” quarterly report, USA fell from 8th to 9th this quarter. Although the average US Internet speed has improved since this time last year, the country as a whole has fallen behind in the international scope.
According to a recent CNN article:
In some ways, the United States is at a disadvantage when it comes to fast connections. Its sprawling size and hefty population can make building efficient broadband networks a challenge. But critics argue that a relative lack of competition among service providers also hurts.
The states with the best Internet connections include Vermont, New Hampshire, Delaware, DC and Utah. Click here to read more about the United States’ Internet speeds, and be sure to contact K&R Network Solutions to keep your infrastructure running smoothly.
