MASTERPIECE in MOROCCO
2019 GALA a Magical Night!
Saturday, July 13th 6pm
at the iconic Spreckels Organ Pavilion
The Spreckels Organ Pavilion was transformed into a magical backdrop for the 2019 Gala, Masterpiece in Morocco.
We wandered to a faraway oasis of culture, art and history under the canopy of a million stars to rejoice in the crown jewel of San Diego, Balboa Park.
It was a world rich in flowing fabric, lush color, embroidered cushions & gilded tabletops. We dined, danced and delighted under the lantern-lights to celebrate and support our ten beneficiaries.

This honor serves to showcase the extraordinary contributions of outstanding leaders who exemplify the term iconic and have left an indelible mark for the greater cultural good of our community.
