The Rancho Santa Fe Unit of Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary will hold its Circus Nights Gala on Saturday, January 31st, 2015 at the Grand Del Mar. This is a must attend event that will feature a cirque acrobatic performance, dinner, and party.
Circus Nights will feature a private Cirque du Soliel style show extravaganza headlined by the internationally-acclaimed troupe “iL CIRCo” who will present Viaggio by iL CIRCo. The choreographed performances are inspired by the classical Italian theatrics of the Commedia dell’arte, Viaggio fuses modern-day acrobatics with the popular French-Canadian circus arts into a rich tapestry of song, dance, comedy, fantasy and awe-inspiring superhuman acts of strength, grace and agility. Gala co-chairs, Sandra Den Uijl and Greta Sybert, along with 14 women on the planning committee decided to have a live cirque performance instead of standup comedy entertainment as the event has had for the last 8 years with “Bohemian Nights.”
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Sam S. and Rose Stein Emergency Care Center in support of its Resuscitation Room Project. The Center is the only emergency care center in the region dedicated to caring for kids and the only one in San Diego County designated as a Level 1 pediatric trauma center. Each year, there are approximately 70,000 emergency care visits. Over the past 17 Years, the Rancho Santa Fe Auxiliary Unit has raised over 9 million dollars for Rady Children’s Hospital.
