Enlightened Affair

| May 26, 2011 | Parties

The Hanger Building at the O.C. Fairgrounds hosted the PBS SoCal Illumination gala honoring John Tu, and Goodwill of O.C. Performers from Mark Wood Entertainment mingled with guests during a reception. Then, revelers fĂȘted the efforts of the KOCE-TV Foundation and performances by California Dreamin’. Auction items and a $100,000 donation from John Tu combined to raise $550,000. Thanks to co-chairs Peggy Goldwater Clay and Ardelle St. George, along with Artistic Director Michael Mora, the evening was a hit. “Some events are all about the mission,” says Paula Kerger, president of PBS nationwide. “Others are so much of a party you don’t remember the cause. [This] was strong on both counts.” Photos by Ann Chatillon
