15th Annual

Select album

We would like to thank everyone who attended and supported our 15th Annual A Night for Our Children Gala on Wednesday, June 7th, 2017 at Marquee.

Guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, a fabulous auction and decadent desserts donated by the famous Larry Scott. 

A special presentation by DylanCastro from Experience camps, was the most memorable part of the evening.

Our live auction included dinner from the famous Chef Dino Gatto for 10 guests in true Rao’s fashion in your home and Dinner for 4 at Rao’s, the most exclusive reservation in town!
