Gingerbread City Gala 2018

Honoring 25 Years of Philanthropic Stars!

Dr. Michael R. Cunningham, Honoree Host

Join us for a holiday celebration 25 years in the making…the 25th Anniversary of Gingerbread City, the Epilepsy Foundation of San Diego County’s premier holiday Gala. On Monday, November 26, 2018 guests will be mesmerized by masterpiece gingerbread structures created by culinary artists for this year’s theme, Castles & Cottages, on display at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar.

This signature holiday event joins together San Diego’s philanthropic community leaders, movers and influencers to enjoy savory delicacies prepared by Host Chef William Bradley of Addison and Chef Stations featuring the most gifted chefs in the San Diego region. Our 25th Annual Gingerbread Structure Competition is the largest on the West Coast, attracting national attention and generating support for life changing programs to serve children and adults with epilepsy.

Hand-crafted holiday cocktails, champagne, artistry and live entertainment abound. With scintillating live auction items, holiday performances and the whimsy of Charles Dickens inspirations, the grandeur of the evening will delight all.

All proceeds support the free programs and services offered to the tens of thousands of children and adults living with epilepsy in San Diego County. For more information and to purchase tickets or tables, please visit or call (619) 296-0161.
