October 12, 2019 | Hotel del Coronado

Hotel del Coronado is the setting for City Ballet of San Diego’s fundraising gala, which will begin at 6pm on October 12 in the Del’s new outdoor event venue. Following the reception, guests will move to the ballroom to enjoy dinner, a ballet performance by City Ballet dancers, live auction with auctioneer Darren Diess, and dancing to The Mighty Untouchables. This year’s honorary chairs are Barbie and Dan Spinazzola, whose guidance and support over many years has been invaluable to the arts organization. Jeweler John Matty of John Matty Co. in Rancho Santa Fe has created and donated a stunning pair of one-of-a-kind 18k white gold and diamond earrings with onyx and pearl, which will go to the winner of the opportunity drawing. cityballet.org
