Invited attendees previously were offered VIP box seating, which has been one of the elements that has characterized Charity Ball and added to its uniqueness. Borrowed from European ball tradition, each of the 50 “boxes” provides a discrete cluster of eight seats arranged around two small bistro tables near the dance floor. It was once the custom that those occupying the boxes would “receive” visitors at their boxes just as they would have at home.
All Proceeds from this Black Tie gala will be used to further benefit state of the art research at the Rady Children's Institute for Genomic Medicine.
