This is an affiliate event – not hosted by the Halftime Institute.


Natural High, founded by Fellows Alum Jon Sundt, has a vision that every kid in America would make the choice to live naturally high. Support the realization of this vision by attending the 2019 Natural High gala on November 16, 2019 at The Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines.


Natural High partners with over 40 celebrity ambassadors who share powerful stories of challenge, resilience, and determination in our online videos. Educators and youth leaders across the nation pair these videos with our research-based activities. We provide these free resources to help anyone who works with youth begin meaningful conversations that create lasting change.


We invite you to sponsor our largest annual fundraising event as we gather to celebrate the achievements of young people living naturally high. The 2019 Natural High gala is on November 16, 2019 at The Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines. Our gala brings together approximately 350 of San Diego’s most prominent individuals and executives from the financial, business, medical and professional sectors.


We’re asking you to support our vision. Here’s why you should—

• 85% of youth participating in the program reported that having a natural high will help fight the temptation to use drugs or alcohol.
• There are 43,000 educators in Natural High’s network across the U.S. and growing.
• 80,000 people have directly pledged to live naturally high.
• Over 8 Million youth have engaged in Natural High’s programs, and the number is growing
