Crystal Ball Gala Patron Party


The Crystal Ball Gala Patron Party was held at the Ecke estate in Encinitas on Oct. 9. This pre-party honors Crystal Ball Gala patrons and Casa de Amparo’s largest supporters.

The 16th Annual Crystal Ball Gala will be held on Saturday, 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.

The Nov. 1 evening will include 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.
