Annual Gala

The Annual Gala is ASF’s signature fundraising event, building on the tremendous success of The Big Splash, which helped raise the money to start ASF and continued as an annual event until 2009. 

ASF’s Annual Gala – Puttin’ On the Ritz

Saturday, January 23, 2016 – Marconi Automotive Museum, Tustin

If you’re blue and you don’t know where to go to…PUTTIN’ ON THE RITZ!

“Putting on the ritz” was Roaring Twenties slang for getting dressed up and referred to the excesses at the very fashionable and upscale Ritz Hotel. And that’s just what we want you to do on Saturday, January 23, 2016.

Ladies, pull out those fancy gowns. Gents, grab your arrow collars and white spats. Get all gussied up and join us for ASF’s Annual Gala – Puttin’ On the Ritz! We’re commemorating our 30th anniversary and we want you to share it with us!

The evening will begin with your arrival on our red carpet and subsequent enjoyment of the cocktail hour at our well-stocked open bars. There’s no prohibition here so sip away as much as you like and enjoy the swinging jazz from our live band. And don’t forget to take this opportunity to check out the live and silent auction items, place your initial bids and plan your bidding strategy!

You can also enjoy the entertainment provided by our wandering “table magicians.” They’ll perform their own brand of magic, up close and personal, to your enjoyment and fascination. They’re the cat’s pajamas!

Next up will be the delicious dinner provided by Sir Bruno Serato and the Anaheim White House Restaurant.

Sounds like the bee’s knees, right? It’s an evening Jay Gatsby himself wouldn’t want to miss!

So don’t be a wet blanket! Ditch the flat tire and join all the other swells! Click the Purchase button below to reserve your table/tickets today!
