Power of Love Gala

The Power of Love Gala welcomed the honored donors who over the years continuously support the efforts of the Charity Ball with a reception at the Hotel Del Coronado followed by a dazzling night of celebration and support as attendees dined, danced, and toasted to the elegant tradition of the Charity Ball.

Having started in 1909, Charity Ball is celebrated as San Diego’s oldest and grandest philanthropic event. Since 1954, Charity Ball has exclusively benefited Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego. This year’s beneficiary is the new Neuroscience Institute, which offers the exciting possibility of changing the future of a child who has a potentially devastating neurological condition.
