We request the honour of your presence at Pacific Pride Foundation's Third Annual Royal Ball, on Saturday, April 12th, 2014 at the Bacara Resort & Spa. The Royal Ball will transport you to a fabulous evening in Paris, filled with glamour, opulence, magnificent music and alluring guests, all in support of Pacific Pride Foundation. We have secured underwriting and leveraged our extensive relationships in the event production industry, allowing us to produce an epic event at a fraction of the real cost. Royal butlers will serve cocktails and canapés on silver trays beneath the Eiffel Tower, while beautiful dancers and performance artists will entertain and delight! The Royal Ball will bring together gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and straight supporters to share a memorable evening of wild fun in support of Pacific Pride Foundation’s important programs and services. This is 'Gay Paris' as you’ve never seen it before!
This year we are delighted to announce a second event, which will follow the Royal Ball! On Sunday, April 13th there will be an amazing Gospel Brunch on Bacara’s Ocean Lawn. Get ready for the best Gospel Choir this side of the Mississippi! Guests will be served a fabulous southern brunch, and the most epic, fully loaded Bloody Marys you have ever laid eyes on! This will be the 'hair-of-the-dog’ party that we have ALL been waiting for!

Imagine yourself ensconced in an elegant duplex on a gated, private street in a 1930s art deco building, in one of the most fashionable and beautiful sections of Paris, the 16th Arrondissement! This apartment has quick access to all that Paris offers. The Eiffel Tower, Trocadero, Arc de Triomphe, and Champs Elysees are all within walking distance. The first floor has a dramatic double-height living room, dining room, gourmet kitchen and half bath. Upstairs are the master bedroom, a modern bathroom and a lovely study. It’s just steps to the neighborhood markets, patisseries, cafes, bistros, parks and so much more! To quote Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina, "Paris is always a good idea."
