Bunny Ball is a high energy, spring themed, black-tie celebration at Hilton San Diego Bayfront, collecting stuffed bunnies for local non-profits in time for Easter. The event brings together San Diego's Finest to raise funds for Cruise 4 Kids and promote awareness of our beneficiaries. Each guest is required to bring a new stuffed bunny which we collect for distribution to multiple organizations ( Autism Tree Project Foundation , Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito , Miracle Babies , Easter Seals SoCal , Promises2Kids , Father Joe's Villages ), and other local churches and orphanages) in time for Easter gifting.
Cruise 4 Kids and Bunny Ball Founder, Nino Venturella, joins eleven other San Diego industry leaders as Hosts of the Ball to be recognized for their recent professional accomplishments, community involvement, and great character.
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 music from live DJs, dancing, multiple bars, exotic cars, a huge pile of bunnies, silent auction, magicians, photos with bunny mascots, photo booth, candy buffet, cold sparks, and exclusive VIP Lounge. Guests will enjoy the photo opportunity of submerging themselves into the large collection of bunnies called Bunny Pit.
Please reach out if you are interested in Sponsorship or Donating to our Silent Auction.
