Big Finish

| May 7, 2013 | Parties

The guest list read like a who’s who of the football world with pros such as the Green Bay Packers’ Clay Matthews and the New York Jets’ Mark Sanchez. Throw in the local notables—everyone from Glenn and Mindy Stearns to Wing and Kelly Lam—and you had a winning night. But that’s what happens when Athletes First holds its gala and golf tourney benefiting Orangewood Children’s Foundation. The ball began the two-day fest, and the 750 attendees who filled The St. Regis Monarch Beach enjoyed an action-packed evening. Highlights included a live auction, an award ceremony honoring philanthropist and founder of Orangewood’s PALS auxiliary Stephanie Argyros and six-time Pro Bowler Reggie Wayne, and hobnobbing with the sports stars. The party continued on the course the next day, and all of that is expected to raise more than $500,000. Touchdown! Photos by Ann Chatillon
