The 19th Annual Crystal Ball Gala returned to the Del Mar Country Club in Rancho Santa Fe for an evening to benefit Casa de Amparo. Attendees enjoyed a lavish cocktail reception, gourmet dinner by Pamplemousse Grille, music and entertainment by CalPhonics, and one-of-a-kind live auction items. Since 1999, the Crystal Ball Gala has raised substantial funds to help Casa Kids look into their own crystal ball and see a brighter future. All proceeds will directly benefit Casa de Amparo’s programs which treat and prevent child abuse and neglect. This year the Gala raised $250,000 through ticket sales and auction items throughout the evening. To learn more visit www.casadeamparo.org.
