The Capistrano Dispatch
Mission San Juan Capistrano’s 2015 Romance of the Mission benefit gala will be held on Friday, Sept. 18 on the Mission grounds. Longtime supporters Wylie and Bette Aitken are the 2015 honorees, and the live concert performance in the ruins of the Great Stone Church is titled “That’s Life!,” a tribute to Frank Sinatra on his 100th birthday. The upcoming canonization of the Mission’s founder, Fr. Junipero Serra, will be acknowledged and celebrated during the evening.
Proceeds from the 2015 benefit gala will be directed toward the third and final phase of the Sala Preservation Project, an ongoing renewal effort of the Mission’s 18th-century building to include the museum room build-out.
