Tickets are $50 per person and include hors d’oeuvres, wine and beer, as well as self-guided tours of the estate. Beyond exploring the stately 1930s Spanish hacienda, which encompasses a large city block with vast lawns and lush fruit trees, the benefit will include a silent auction, raffles and student musical performances. An additional raffle, sponsored by Desert Wholesale Diamond, will send one lucky winner home with a ½ carat diamond. Principal Lynda Lake will present Desert Healthcare District with a Community Partner Award and recognize Tricia Gehrlein with a Community Leader Award.
Cielo Vista Charter School is a dependent public school of choice and part of the Palm Springs Unified School District. As a charter, the school is open to all students (subject to availability) and tuition-free, however the Cielo Vista community is responsible for raising about one-quarter of the school’s annual budget. Cielo Vista Charter is governed by an independent board of directors, which includes Mark Anderson, David Baron, James Cioffi, William Kleindienst and Frank Tinney.
Sponsors for this event include Ace Hotel, Camelot Café, Beau Monde Villas, Buzz Factory, Desert Radio Group, DJ ODC, Pacific Wine and Spirits, Hilton Palm Springs, Mission Hills Country Club, Sammy G’s, Starbucks and Sysco. Additional sponsorships are still available.
