Childhelp Fashion Show and Luncheon

| June 2, 2017 | Parties

The Childhelp Fashion Show and Luncheon raised a tidy sum of $300,000 to fund its mission to aid kids in need and end abuse.

THE PARTY With a parade of styles from South Coast Plaza, a crowd that numbered 400 and the support of power players like Christine Bren, Patti Edwards, Stephanie Argyros and Lisa Argyros, there was little doubt the annual Childhelp Fashion Show and Luncheon would prove to be a fabulous success (to the tune of $300,000, in fact). THE GUESTS Co-chairs Katherine Meredith and Diana Miner beamed with delight, thrilled with the buzz of energy around the opportunity drawing prizes that topped a table outside the Island Hotel’s ballroom. Celebrity guest Shenae Grimes-Beech (think 90210) and husband Josh Beech (a model) mingled with guests. Jennifer Segerstrom, Eve Ruffatto, Wendy Hales and Priscilla “Bo” Marconi were also spotted among the beautiful faces. THE HIGHLIGHTS Through it all, Childhelp’s mission to end abuse was at the front of everyone’s mind. That made the presentation of the Children’s Friend Award (Mary Allyn Dexter and Dale San Filippo did the honor) to Lisa Castetter, founder of the Teen Leadership Foundation—which strives to empower foster teens and emancipated youths with its innovative programs—so very meaningful. -Tina Borgatta
