PHOTOS: Prado patrons party at Balboa Park’s centennial celebration in San Diego

The Patrons of the Prado presented their “Masterpiece” gala July 18, 2015 at Spreckels Organ Pavilion in Balboa Park to raise funds for the 11 museums, arts and cultural institutions along the park’s Prado. The event was also a celebration of Balboa Park’s 100-year anniversary of the Panama-California Exposition, for which it was created. The festivities began with a cocktail reception, followed by dinner, dessert, and a through-the-decades multi-media entertainment experience produced for the event by San Diego’s NRG band. The evening continued with dancing under the moonlight and a live auction.
