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. At our past in-person events, cocktail hour has had a silent auction, photo booth, wine draw, and art gallery. The art gallery was comprised of art created by Villa’s children and adults, and guests could purchase artwork to take home. Dinner included 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

Villa Esperanza Services invites you to participate in our annual fundraising gala on Saturday, April 30, 2022. We are hoping to return to an in-person event at the Langham Huntington Hotel after two years of virtual events. The pandemic has shown us that community is more important than ever, and for the past 60 years, Villa Esperanza Services has been proudly serving the community by providing diverse programs for intellectually/developmentally disabled children, adults, and seniors.

The need for Villa’s services remains unchanged as we have pivoted to providing a mix of in-person and virtual services for all of our programs. Villa’s staff work together every day to support our clients and their families and have inspired this year’s theme, “It Takes a Villa”, with Tuscany, Italy as design inspiration. As part of the evening’s festivities, we are pleased to honor Patty Zuber for her dedication to Villa. Patty has a long history of philanthropy and has provided Villa with her expertise, leadership, and support for many years, in addition to sharing Villa’s mission with the community.

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!
