Event Background Information
DEI’s Forte for Children Foundation is holding its NINTH Annual Charity Gala Saturday, September 8th, 2018 and will be held at the beautiful HILTON SAN DIEGO BAYFRONT HOTEL, located at 1 Park Boulevard, San Diego, CA 92101.
The gala funds are used to support programs focused on helping disadvantaged youth through music and education therapy. Since its inception in 2001, Forte for Children has raised $5 million to support local youth. Last year, Forte for Children distributed $550,000 to its key beneficiaries through their annual gala. The Charitable Foundation Gala is a black-tie event that begins with a silent auction/reception, drinks, and hors d’oeuvres.
Guests then enter the Ball Room for a three-course dinner, live entertainment, performances from the Boys & Girls Clubs and a live auction. The gala is the main fundraising event for Forte for Children, allowing them to maximize, and some years match, the funds raised through the help of the generous donors attending the event.
