Papa Doug and Lisa Manchester and the Manchester Family Foundation have donated $1 million to the 114th Anniversary Charity Ball benefiting Chadwick Center for Children & Families at Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego, the single largest gift in Charity Ball history.
“This incredibly generous and transformative gift from the Manchester family will change the lives of many children and allow them to heal from trauma. I invite the community to join us,” says Danitza Villanueva, Charity Ball chair. For more than a century, the volunteer-organized Charity Ball has brought together community leaders and supporters from throughout our region for a night of elegance, recognition, entertainment, and commitment to children in need. The black-tie affair, themed “Come Fly with Me,” features a VIP reception at 5pm, general reception at 6pm, and a white-glove dinner in the historic Crown Room followed by dancing and a fabulous floor show featuring entertainment in the Ocean Ballroom from 8pm to midnight. Individual tickets are $500 and box seating for parties of eight is also available.
