The California Innocence Project (CIP) hosts its annual fundraising event, the XONR8 Gala, every fall to support the work of freeing the innocent. Many of the CIP’s freed clients attend the event where we honor them and professionals in our community who have helped our cause.

Along with meeting CIP’s clients, staff, and interns, Gala attendees have the opportunity to network with like-minded individuals who care about our work. This red-carpet event features fund-a-need opportunities, entertainment, a wine wall, and food and beverages.  As the Project’s premier event, this is one not to miss.

Sponsoring the XONR8 Gala is an incredible way to show your support for our work. For more information, please email Alissa Bjerkhoel at

Note: This is considered a donor event closed to CWSL students.

Thank You 2022 Sponsors
