On an unseasonably cold San Diego morning (around 45 degrees, but we’re not complaining . . . ), a team from the Allen Matkins San Diego office participated in the San Diego Museum of Man’s inaugural 5k run/walk to honor Alan Jaffe, who served as a trustee of the Museum. The 5k, held in conjunction with the Museum’s latest exhibit, “Race: Are We So Different?,” raised money for the Museum’s educational program and the Monarch School in San Diego, a therapeutic school for children with neurological disorders.
Jaffe, who passed away last year, was a friend and client of Val Hoy, a partner at Allen Matkins. Both of them served as trustees of the Museum for over a decade. In his professional life, Alan was a partner in JMB, the Chicago based real estate group. In San Diego, Alan was better known through his connections with arts and culture institutions.
“It was a privilege to honor Alan’s memory by participating in an event that directly benefited causes he was devoted to serving,” said Hoy.
