Please join me and our City Ballet Board of Directors as we present an exciting virtual fundraising gala.

Pivoting from our traditional gala at the Hotel del Coronado to a virtual gala proved to be a challenge. We shifted with resilience, combining the talents of our committee to produce an event that will surprise and delight you. Join us as we raise support for City Ballet of San Diego.

I am honored to chair this unique event and look forward to greeting you all via The City Ballet Youtube Channel.

We encourage you to join us in the comfort of your own home to enjoy this virtual gala.

Thank you,

Proceeds from this event provide funding for City Ballet’s Performances, Education, and Outreach Programs, maximizing our potential to touch the lives of thousands of children and patrons given the challenges in 2020 to our social environment.
