Childhelp O.C.’s For the Love of a Child Fashion Show and Luncheon delighted with more than $375,000 for at-risk youth.
THE PARTY A midmorning mingle at Fashion Island Hotel’s Aqua Lounge set the tone for a day of giving and glamour. Honorary chair Patti Edwards wowed in a white Escada suit while chapter president Julie Adams, and co-chairs Linda Burns and Tami Smith looked fabulous in florals. They welcomed Childhelp’s many supporters, including Children’s Friend Award honoree Tilly Levine. THE SCENE South Coast Plaza’s Debra Gunn Downing and Kathryn Cenci looked on as the retail giant presented a stunning show featuring looks by Intermix, Max Mara and more. Attendees enjoyed baked salmon with squash risotto before indulging in chocolate cake. THE HIGHLIGHTS Jean Campbell cheered with excitement as she took home a $2,500 South Coast Plaza shopping spree. But it was the memorable testimonials by foster survivor Nikki Marrone and Inspirational Award recipient Beverly Cohen that truly set hearts ablaze.
