The Nice Guys honored Joe Harper at their 40th annual major fundraising gala

Nice Guy of 2019

The Nice Guys honored Joe Harper at their 40th annual major fundraising gala. Each year, the nonprofit recognizes someone who has given their time, money, and support to help San Diegans improve their lives. At the request of Harper, part of the funds raised were given to The Don Diego Scholarship Foundation and The Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito. The remainder of the funds supported Nice Guys’ projects and individual San Diegans who need a “one time” helping hand up to get their lives back on track. The Nice Guys Charity Committee identifies these cases throughout the year. “Every single dollar we raise goes to needy San Diegans,” said David Walters, the 2019 Nice Guy of the Year committee chair. Founded in 1979, the Nice Guys of San Diego is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization of more than 177 men and women, with no paid staff. In 2018 they provided more than $780,000 to underserved San Diegans, including $340,000 by their Victory Fund in assisting military families. Their total charitable distributions now exceed $21 million with 100% of every dollar raised going to needy recipients. All Nice Guys operating costs are paid by its members.
