Sweet treats await Don Diego Gala-Goers on June 7, 2018 at the San Diego County Fair, 2260 Jimmy Durante Boulevard, Del Mar, CA 92014.

The Infield Pavilion will be transformed into a candy land of delight for the exclusive Gala. Individual tickets are $275, with a $25 discount if purchased by May 21, 2018.

Guests will mingle with a Who’s Who of San Diego society and meet the Class of 2018 college scholarship recipients, who will be presented in a brief program before the Gala culminates in elite seating for the performance of the iconic classic rock band, Kansas.

A live auction will feature a case of Gold Medal wines, Blue Ribbon lamb, Grandstand star-autographed guitars and other unique items, plus once-in-a-lifetime surprise opportunities. SWEET!
