This year’s “Viva La Fiesta” theme includes a VIP brunch with spectacular cuisine from more than 35 of LA’s top restaurants, including Melisse, Providence, Savory, Angelini Osteria, and Spago.

The auction will feature Twilight memorabilia, a ride in a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s helicopter, Southwest Airlines tickets, and much more.

“Pier del Sol is a day that the whole family can enjoy, while giving back to the community and our Special Olympics athletes,” said Bill Shumard, President and CEO of Special Olympics Southern California. “Each year this event gets better and better. We hope the public will continue to come out and enjoy the wonderful cuisine, live music, and games at the historic Santa Monica Pier.”

“Rob has contributed to our movement at every turn,” said Shumard. “He’s an amazing fundraiser who is compassionate and cares for our athletes. His support has helped make this year’s Pier del Sol the most successful in its history.”

Along with Rob and other celebrities and sports figures, California’s former First Lady, Maria Shriver will be attending as the honorary chair.

General Admission tickets are $45 and include unlimited rides, eight game tickets, and a meal coupon for Pacific Park’s food plaza.
