About the Evening

The XONR8 Gala is the California Innocence Project’s (CIP) signature fundraising event. Every year, supporters from throughout San Diego and beyond gather at the Gala to honor CIP’s freed clients and to raise funds to help the Project continue its important work.

During the evening, guests enjoy tastings of heavy hors d’oeuvres from several local restaurants while mingling about the beautiful courtyard of the Headquarters venue in San Diego’s Seaport Village. Cocktail attire preferred. See a general program of the evening below. Please note, the program is subject to change.
