ABOUT THE ANNUAL GALA AND THE RED BALLOON AWARD

A Very Important Date!

Oh won’t you join us at our 4th Annual Gala on September 21 at Encinitas’ wonderland, also known as the enchanted Lux Art Institute.

In searching for this year’s theme we must admit we fell down the rabbit’s hole as we searched this way, that way, over here & over there and finally decided on going the mad hatters way with one that is indeed curiouser and curiouser than any theme we’ve ever had before!

Bring your kids to our Alice in Wonderland fun zone and introduce them to philanthropy. Kids can bid on items of their heart’s desire with their own Book Bucks, purchase raffle tickets or exchange them for prizes in the StoryTent!

Whatever you do, make sure to not miss out on this very important date and run as twice as fast as you can to snag early bird tickets. Pay early bird prices (up to July 31) only $110 for individual tickets, or better yet get a whole table of 10 at $1,000. What’s a tea party without friends!
