The Arc of San Diego held its highly anticipated annual Spring Gala, themed Casino Royale on April 20th at the US Grant Hotel. It was an evening full of glamour, mystery, and exhilaration found on the casino floor.

Under the guidance of Event Chair Linda Kurtin, a longtime supporter and local philanthropist, The Arc of San Diego invites guests to immerse themselves in the world of Casino Royale. Wayne Foster Music and Entertainment set the stage for an unforgettable night, and the gala was hosted by the charismatic MC Mark Mathis, Meteorologist from KUSI TV.
