KPBS held its second annual “Celebrates” gala at The Lodge at Torrey Pines on Oct. 29. Caroline Nierenberg chaired the masked ball with help from co-chairs Julie Hatch and Denise Vila. Many of the guests arrived in themed attire to fully engage in the fun, which was capped off by the presentation of Hall of Fame Awards and a performance by SDSU Opera Theater. The night also included a silent auction, dinner, and dancing to the music of Soultones.
