All That Glitters

| January 1, 2014 | Parties

A star-studded crowd of 300 draped themselves in jewels and filled The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel for Beckstrand Cancer Association’s Diamond & Pearl Ball—and this 10th anniversary affair certainly sparkled (as it should). Celebs Lisa Rinna and Eva La Rue—the organization’s spokeswoman—and local notables Blaine and Renetta Caya gathered at tables outfitted with chandelier centerpieces to wine, dine and listen as cancer survivor Bryan Fazio shared his powerful story. A rousing live auction added to the elegance—and Lugano’s 10-carat Ceylon sapphire was just one of the stunning items that helped bring the party’s final tally to $1.8 million net. If that wasn’t enough, Grammy Award-winning artist Alanis Morissette put on a private performance for VIPs after the gala that lit up the night. Simply brilliant.
