Villa's Annual Fundraising Gala, known as Blue & White, is held at the Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena, usually in the spring. The event has a different theme each year and includes cocktail hour on the Viennese Terrace and a sit down dinner in the Viennese Ballroom. Cocktail hour has a silent auction, photo booth, wine draw, and art gallery. The art gallery is comprised of art created by Villa’s children and adults, and guests can purchase artwork to take home. Dinner includes a program, live auction, and paddle raise. All event proceeds benefit the diverse programs that Villa provides for children, adults, and seniors with intellectual/developmental disabilities.

Blue & White 2022

Thank you to everyone who attended and donated to our Blue & White gala this year. We were thrilled to return to an in-person event at the Langham Huntington Hotel and with your support, we raised over $324,000 for Villa! It was a beautiful evening honoring Patty Zuber, and we are so grateful to our supporters. Your generosity helps us continue to provide diverse services to our children, adults, and seniors with intellectual/developmental disablities. It truly does take a Villa! CHeck back soon for photos from the event.

Blue & White 2019

Thank you to everyone who made our 2019 Blue & White gala so successful! The theme was "There's No Place Like Villa" and guests enjoyed an evening in the Emerald City to celebrate the journeys of our individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities. We were pleased to honor Jayne and Ken Parsons this year. For over 20 years, Jayne and Ken have helped Villa fulfill its mission to provide love, care, and hope for individuals with special needs. The event raised $229,000 for Villa's programs, and we are grateful for everyone's support!
