Each of the gala’s 900 attendees will be given a gift bag at the end of the event, stuffed with premium items donated by event sponsors. This is our final “thank you” to our guests for their support, and a coveted item by attendees.

The Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) is a San Diego-based non-profit organization whose mission is to provide opportunities and support to people with physical disabilities so they can pursue active lifestyles through physical fitness and competitive athletics. CAF believes that involvement in sports at any level increases self-esteem, encourages independence and enhances quality of life. As a result, the communities in which CAF-funded athletes live and work are enhanced and improved by the athlete’s new-found ability to thrive. In 19 years, CAF has raised more than $35 million and supported more than 6,000 physically challenged individuals around the world, through the funding of adaptive sports equipment, training, coaching and mentoring, through its Access for Athletes and Operation Rebound programs.
