This evening’s Romance of the Mission benefit gala at the historic Mission San Juan Capistrano will provide funds for the ongoing conservation and preservation of the mission. The annual fundraiser supports the Mission Preservation Foundation and proceeds from this evening’s gala will fund the final phase of the Sala Preservation Project.

The event coincides with the upcoming canonization of the mission’s founder, Blessed Junipero Serra, who will be acknowledged during the evening.

Wylie and Bette Aitkin, longtime supporters of the conservation and preservation of the mission will be honored at the gala.
