Carol of the Bells

| February 5, 2014 | Parties

More than 450 revelers gathered at The St. Regis Monarch Beach for a festive tradition that not only commemorated the season in chic SoCal style, but also raised funds for research, clinical trials and patient support services at Hoag Hospital. Indeed, the foundation’s annual Christmas Carol Ball was a night of celebration. Guests were treated to everything from a live auction to an incredible meal prepared by Executive Chef Frederic Castan. String Theory, meanwhile, amazed with its jaw-dropping performances on enormous instruments—including a massive harp suspended from the ceiling. A final touch? Attendees bid for a cause on items like providing care for a child with Type 1 diabetes for a day—just another way to spread cheer. –Photos courtesy of Elle Photography
