What an absolutely magical and unforgettable evening we shared at THE RADDEST GALA ON EARTH! RAD Camp community gathered at AV Irvine for a night of celebration benefitting its programs that support children and adults with developmental disabilities.

Greeted in true camp fashion with a welcome tunnel, guests high-fived campers and counselors who have experienced the life-changing power of camp firsthand on their way into the venue. Their enthusiastic cheers could be heard from inside the venue where arrived individuals gathered to enjoy a cocktail hour and the chance to mingle before the evening began!

With over 350 guests in attendance, the venue was transformed into a circus-themed extravaganza as a play on this year’s camp theme to create an authentic experience for all in attendance. Dinner service continued to wow guests as 24 Carrots Catering provided camp-style burgers and custom cocktails with RAD-branded ice cubs by Ice Bulb!

This year, we were able to host 30 tables and had a 54% increase in guest attendance from our last gala! With the help of our 56 RAD Camp ambassadors and more than 350 attendees, we were able to raise…
