Clam Slam!

| September 4, 2013 | Parties

New England’s favorite summer tradition boiled over to West Coast shores when the Children’s Bureau hosted its annual clambake fundraiser at Irvine’s Oak Creek Golf Club. Day faded into night as 200 attendees filled their bellies with seafood and toasted marshmallows fireside—for s’mores, but of course. The scene heated up even more with a wine pull, cocktails and other fun before partiers hit the dance floor to rock out to the Susie Hansen Band. And the crowd wasn’t shy about raising funds, either. Guests like JoAnn Fanticola, Jessica Johnson, and Shep and Tina Wainwright joined co-chairwomen Barbara Eidson, Peggy Goldwater Clay and Brenda Walters in shelling out the clams for silent and live auction prizes, and helping to net $190,000 for the nonprofit’s local child abuse prevention programs. Now that’s a steamy night! Photography by Danielle Klebanow
