Masterpiece Gala 2016 – Full Steam Ahead was a huge success!
Thank you for your participation and support!
The Spreckels Organ Pavilion grounds were transformed into a magical setting where arts and culture lovers, donors, patrons and corporate leaders mingled in steampunk style to celebrate our beloved Balboa Park. We are beyond grateful to our dynamic and dedicated team including gala chair, Arlene Esgate, co-chair Kristi Pieper, president Micki Olin, gala committee members and volunteers who worked so hard to make this a most memorable Masterpiece Gala. Thank you to our generous sponsors and donors who enable us to raise funds to preserve and support our 11 beneficiaries and their world-class exhibitions and educational programming in Balboa Park.

Supporting an extraordinary collection of
arts and cultural institutions at Balboa Park—
the nation’s largest cultural urban park.

 

The Prado is Balboa Park’s central promenade, a crown jewel famous for its historical artisan-crafted facades, lush gardens, sparkling pools and flowing fountains. The area is alive with highly prized attractions, exhibitions and performances. The Prado is always “in season” providing a world-class cultural and educational experience for the millions of locals and visitors from around the world who frequent Balboa Park each year.

Since 1997 the Patrons of the Prado have provided over $2 million and thousands of volunteer hours to benefit the distinguished array of arts and cultural organizations that occupy The Prado.

There is no better way to make an impact on a wide range of San Diego’s cultural landmarks and the health of our community’s arts, than by supporting Patrons of the Prado and our annual Gala—one of San Diego’s premier fundraising events.
