Bejeweled Bash

| January 21, 2015 | Parties

A sparkling affair was in store for the 500-plus St. Joseph Hospital supporters who gathered at the Newport Beach Marriott for the medical institution’s annual affair. Grammy Award-nominated artist Jewel graced the stage to sing “Who Will Save Your Soul” and “Hands,” and to share stories about her life—and, oh, how her sweet words struck a chord with the crowd. Event co-chairwoman Nadia Elihu called her voice angelic, while CEO Steven Moreau said her performance was beyond his expectation. Their remarks highlighted one of many facets of the eve, which also dazzled with a gourmet meal, auctions and an opportunity drawing—and closed with $358,000 net for the Nursing Excellence program, a service that has helped the center’s nurses rank among the best in the nation. Simply brilliant. –Photos by Teresa Taylor of T Taylor Photography
