Some of San Diego’s loveliest givers donned their LBDs and pearls for the Breakfast at Tiffany’s-themed brunch to benefit Miracle Babies.
THE PARTY More than 160 members and guests of Miracle Babies’ Miracle Circle Auxiliary gathered for a cocktail hour and brunch at La Valencia to learn about the work Miracle Babies programs do and raise funds for the nonprofit. THE SCENE Brunchgoers channeled their inner Audrey Hepburn in little black dresses and pearls (also spotted: plenty of tiny tiaras) to create a picturesque group on La V’s oceanview terrace, sipping cocktails by Tito’s vodka and entering a raffle for Kendra Scott jewelry. THE HIGHLIGHTS Master of ceremonies Kimberly Hunt introduced keynote speaker Dr. John Nigro, chief of cardiac surgery at the Heart Institute at Rady’s Children’s Hospital, and Dr. Sean Daneshmand, perinatologist and Miracle Babies’ co-founder. A special appearance by “Miracle Dad” Dr. Robert Improta left few dry eyes in the audience, and Esther Rodriguez was awarded the Miracle Circle Women of Distinction Award. -Andrea Bennett
