18th Annual Crystal Ball Gala to be held Nov. 5


The goal of this year’s Crystal Ball Gala Committee is to make 2016’s event the most successful in the history of the event.

Returning on Saturday, Nov. 5, to the premier private Del Mar Country Club in Rancho Santa Fe, the black-tie gala will kick off with an elaborate cocktail reception. Guests will enjoy an exquisite gourmet dinner by the celebrated chef Jeffrey Strauss of Pamplemousse Grille.

Guests will also enjoy music and dancing with JP Hunten Music and a unique one-of-a-kind live auction, which last year included items such as a Super Bowl party for 50, an exclusive Yellowstone National Park private ranch vacation and a five-day private-luxury cruise around the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The committee will work in conjunction with the partners from Fluid Components International that have been named as the Crystal Ball Gala’s Honorary Chairs for 2016.

The gala is the largest fundraiser of the year and it contributes substantially to Casa de Amparo’s operating revenue. Since 1999, visionary Crystal Ball Gala patrons and community members have raised funds to help Casa Kids look in to their own crystal ball and see a brighter future that is free from abuse and neglect.

Be sure to get your tickets early this year as they are sure to sell out quickly. Please visit for more information on the event or call Anna Leyrer at 760-566-3560.
