‘Casablanca’ gala to benefit new program sponsored by Del Mar Community Connections

Akram “AK” Mansour, owner of Mirabella Home, consults with members of the Del Mar Community Connections Casablanca Benefit Gala decoration committee in choosing chandeliers and other items to create a Moroccan environment. Pictured are Chris Engelbrecht, Myriam Ouddou, AK Mansour, and Julie Iantorno. Mirabella Home is located at 437 S. Hwy 101 in Solana Beach. For more information about the Gala, call DMCC at 858-792-7565.

An Evening in Casablanca, a benefit gala for Del Mar Community Connections, will be held Saturday, Oct. 15, in St. Peter’s Parish Hall, with all the elements of “Rick’s Café Americain” from the iconic 1942 movie in evidence.

The 6 to 10 p.m. event will begin with cocktails, followed by a Moroccan-inspired dinner by Sbicca, a live auction, and dancing to the ‘40s-era music of Randy Fontaine & the Swingers. Cocktail or ‘40s attire is suggested.

Tickets are $125 per person and, notes Julie Iantorno, chair, space is limited. “It’s not too late to become a member of the Honorary Committee, at $1,000, which includes two tickets,” she adds.

Rosanne Holliday and Linda Katz, Honorary Committee chairs, have recruited more than 36 community leaders to serve on the Honorary Committee, each contributing $1,000 or greater.

Funds raised from this year’s gala will benefit  Del Mar Community Connections’s “In-Home Connections,” a unique program designed to help seniors remain safe and healthy in their homes. Individual client needs are met by providing friendly visits, transportation to medical appointments, prescription pick-up, grocery shopping, social events and more.

For more information, contact Julie Iantorno at 858 245-7178.
