MCASD's 37th annual gala was a smashing success. This year, San Diego's most beloved and highly anticipated fundraiser took guests on an unforgettable journey to St. Tropez. Monte Carlo chairs Sonia Kassel Mandelbaum and Gavin Mandelbaum teamed up with artist Kelsey Brookes, who served as Art Ambassador for the event, to create an epic and unforgettable evening. The night began with a chic cocktail reception at 6:30 PM, followed by an 8 PM dinner in the dazzling, open-air dining room. An open kitchen invited guests to watch their dinner be prepared by three chefs: Ryan Johnston of Whisk'n'ladle, Giuseppe Ciuffa of Giuseppe Restaurants and Fine Catering, and Michele Coulon of Michele Coulon Dessertier. After dinner guests headed to the After Party, co-chaired by Tom and Jennifer DeLonge of Blink 182 fame, where they enjoyed craft cocktails, charity gambling tables, savory midnight snacks, DJ-spun music, multi-level lounges, and a live musical performance by Social Club.
