Starry Starry Night, one of San Diego’s premier fundraising events, will be held on Saturday, Sept. 29. The 16th annual gala will take place at the renowned Sahm Estate at Del Dios Ranch. All event proceeds will benefit Voices for Children, a local nonprofit organization which transforms the lives of children in foster care by providing them with volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs). CASAs advocate for foster children in the courtroom, at school, and in the community to ensure their needs are met.

The signature event of Voices for Children since 2002 has grown from an intimate event in a private home to one of the most anticipated events in our community. Last year’s gala grossed more than $1.5 million. The event returns to Del Dios Ranch in Rancho Santa Fe, which boasts the spectacular Sahm Estate, home to the late Ramona and Roland Sahm. The residence has hosted numerous philanthropic events and is currently on the market.

The evening will begin with an elegant cocktail hour featuring exclusive creations by Snake Oil Cocktail Co. followed by a custom, gourmet menu by Jeffrey Strauss, chef and owner of Pamplemousse Grille. Guests will have the opportunity to bid on fabulous items during the Live Auction and raise their paddles to directly Fund-A-CASA. The gala will conclude with a lively after-party with dancing under the stars.

Tables and individual tickets are currently on sale. Starry Starry Night sells out every year, and guests are encouraged to reserve early.
