KPBS returns to the Lodge for the second annual “KPBS Celebrates Gala.” Through a special partnership with the Evans Hotels, we’re thrilled to have the Lodge at Torrey Pines as our event venue. The sophisticated and elegant ballrooms of this California craftsman-style resort will be transformed into 16th century Venice – the setting of our masquerade ball.
Starting in the Fries/Reiffel ballrooms, guests will indulge in scrumptious bites and themed libations as they do their bidding in support of KPBS. The event’s silent auction will generate much excitement, with more than 40 fabulous packages available – from Julian retreats to ballet tickets.
A gourmet seated dinner takes place in the Lodge’s Braun Ballroom. Chef Jackson will take culinary inspiration from the period to create the evening’s feast, pairing with fine wines to indulge the pallet.
The Lodge at Torrey Pines, known for superior service and breathtaking elegance, is the perfect venue for “KPBS Celebrates: Masquerade de Venezia.”
