The Teddy Ball is a high energy, black-tie holiday celebration hosted yearly in San Diego by local nonprofit, Cruise 4 Kids. The event brings together 1,500+ elite San Diegans to raise funds for Cruise 4 Kids and promote awareness of our beneficiaries. Each guest is required to bring a new stuffed teddy bear which we collect for distribution to multiple organizations (Autism Tree Project Foundation, Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito, Miracle Babies, Easterseals SoCal, Promises2Kids, Father Joe's Villages, and other local churches and orphanages) in time for holiday gifting.
As guests enter they will be treated to a paparazzi experience on the red carpet on their way to a night of festivities which includes live DJ, fashion show, dancing, balloon drop, multiple bars, exotic cars, a huge pile of teddy bears, raffles, silent auctions, magicians, photos with Santa & Elves, photo booth, candy buffet and exclusive VIP Lounge. Guests will enjoy the photo opportunity of submerging themselves into the large collection of teddy bears called Teddy Wall.
