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 FoundationBoys & Girls Clubs of San DieguitoMiracle BabiesEasterseals SoCalPromises2KidsFather 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.
