Crystal Ball Gala


The 16th Annual Crystal Ball Gala was held Nov. 1 at the Del Mar Country Club.

Proceeds will benefit Casa de Amparo, a nonprofit treating and preventing child abuse and neglect throughout San Diego County since 1978. A former Casa de Amparo client, Yadira Menendez, was at the event to tell her story of her transformation from addict to advocate for other struggling addicts.

The gala also included a lavish cocktail reception, gourmet dinner by Jeffrey Strauss of Pamplemousse Grille, dancing to one of San Diego’s top local bands, Something Simple, and one-of-a-kind live auction items.
