IL CiRCo Headlining at San Diego's Most Prestigious Fundraising Event

December 1, 2014

The Rancho Santa Fe Unit (RSF Unit) of Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary has another “evening to remember” planned for its guests who attend its upcoming gala “Circus Nights” at the Grand Del Mar on Jan. 31, 2015.

“It will blow their minds,” said gala co-chair Sandra Den Uijl (pronounced “owl”).

Her partner chairing the event is Greta Sybert, with 14 women total on the planning committee. After eight years of using standup comedy for the gala entertainment, last year a new theme was introduced by then-chairwoman Roni McGuire, with “Bohemian Nights.” Guests enjoyed an elegant sit-down dinner accompanied by the musical talents of acclaimed performer David Garrett, said Den Uijl.

With the “nights” theme established, the book “The Night Circus” by Erin Morgenstern sparked inspiration for the 2015 gala. Il Circo, a group of acrobatic performers similar to Cirque de Soleil, will provide the evening’s entertainment performing “Viaggio,” a theatrical story of a child’s dream. READ FULL STORY HERE
