Crystal Ball Gala
This elegant evening will take place at the premier and private Del Mar Country Club in Rancho Santa Fe. Highlights include a lavish cocktail reception, gourmet dinner by Jeffrey Strauss of Pamplemousse Grille, dancing to one of San Diego’s top local bands, JP Hunten Music, and exclusive live auction items.
Since 1999, visionary Crystal Ball Gala patrons and community members have raised substantial funds to help Casa Kids look into their own crystal ball and see a brighter future. All proceeds raised at Crystal Ball Gala benefit Casa de Amparo.
Special Thanks to our 2016 Honorary Chair
Fluid Components International formed more than 50 years ago as a partnership between the McQueen and the Deane families. Founders Mac McQueen and Bob Deane turned over the management and control of the business in 1994. Today the partners include Nancy Peters, Doug McQueen, Melissa Marquardt, Jeff Deane, Dianne Lane and Dan McQueen, who has been President and CEO since 1995. Collectively, the partners have nearly 200 years of combined experience operating the business that designs, manufacturer’s and sells flow, level, temperature and pressure measurement instrumentation across more than 75 countries around the world.
As a group, the partners have always been socially conscious and we take pride in promoting charity and assistance for the less fortunate. The partners feel blessed by being surrounded by spouses, employees and other business partners who share this passion and who give tirelessly to programs and events benefiting the less fortunate. For the last 6 years the partners have enjoyed running Fluid Components International’s annual golf tournament benefiting Casa de Amparo and are gratified by the honor. The partners share this honor entirely with those individuals who have made that annual golf tournament, along with our many other drives the company orchestrates to benefit Casa de Amparo, such a success. Fluid Components International has shown their commitment to children and family affected by child abuse and neglect by becoming a Casa de Amparo Signature partner. In addition to the annual golf tournament, each year the company enhances the lives of Casa Kids through the Come Home to Casa in-kind drive, fulfilling holiday wish lists and supporting children and families in ways that are meaningful to the partners and employees.
