On Saturday, October 2, under a spectacular sunset over the Pacific Ocean, Project Access kicked-off its “Keys to Success Festival: Good Vibes & Bright Futures” fundraising event. Set within the casual yet sophisticated environs of the beautiful Balboa Bay Club in Newport Beach, California, over 170 attendees dined, danced, laughed, and generated “Good Vibes” resulting in an incredible fundraising achievement of $339,474!

With a fun and rockin’ Coachella Festival kind of atmosphere, guests had a great time mixing, mingling, fundraising, and definitely dancing the night away. The unforgettable evening of socializing, coveted auction items, fine food and beverages, plus stellar entertainment, was made possible through the generosity of our many valued sponsors and in-kind donors. Our final fundraising tally guarantees that Project Access can continue to meet the needs of its many Residents in partner communities across the country.

Here’s just some of the smiling faces and fun that were on display for this worthwhile event. Click here for more photos!
