Golden Record

| April 8, 2014 | Parties

A record 550 guests arrived at Newport Beach’s Island Hotel dressed in their evening finest to toast, dine and dance the night away during this year’s CHOC Cherishes Children Gala celebrating the hospital’s half-century of caring for kids. There were silent and live auctions—basketball great Kobe Bryant and his wife, Vanessa, gave the $1,400 winning bid for a Harry Winston heart pendant. But the highlight came when Grammy-winning songstress Sheryl Crow took the stage to perform her greatest hits, rousing attendees onto the dance floor for an hour of musical fun. And when it was all said and done, the children’s hospital had another $1.3 million to help fund research and health-care programs—a true grand finale. –Photos by Bob Hodson
