This year will mark the 4th annual Face Forward Gala, which will be hosted by the founders of the non-profit organization, Dr. David Alessi and his wife, Deborah Alessi. The evening will be filled with the 1920s glitz and glamour, hence this year’s theme of “A Gatsby Affair,” while still remembering and benefiting the survivors of domestic violence. Designers, To-Tam & To-Nya Sachika, will be displaying and auctioning one of their breathtaking dresses to help raise funds and spread awareness for domestic violence. Turkish Airlines, Torrey Pines Bank, Four Seasons Resort, and Media & Press Kit will be sponsoring this event.

The Gatsby-themed affair will start at 8 P.M. with a star-studded red carpet. The evening will consist of a silent auction, live auction, formal dinner, dancing, and special performances by Stacy Francis and Grammy Award Winner recording artist Macy Gray. This event calls for an unforgettable evening that will be benefitting an important cause.

All funds raised at the gala will be directed towards physical and emotional reconstruction for individuals who have been affected by domestic or gang related violence. All surgical procedures will be performed by Dr. David Alessi and his team.
