RANCHO SANTA FE — A fundraising event for City Ballet was held at the Fairbanks Ranch home of Jovi and Robert LeBorne on June 6. About 100 hundred supporters showed up for a wonderful, sunny afternoon by the pool and tasted wine, nibbled at appetizers and networked with their fellow ballet enthusiasts. Later, some of the dancers performed for the group.
City Ballet not only brings together the best dancers from around the country and the world to dance classical and contemporary ballet at the Spreckle’s Theater in downtown San Diego, it also teaches dance to children and adults. In its community outreach program, it identifies and helps talented disadvantaged children in the community.
The school hosts two fundraisers a year. The next will be the Nutcracker Gala in November.
Fred Kiko, longtime ballet supporter, issued a challenge to the gathering, saying he and his friends will match donations up to $70,000 to the company.
