Good Gracious!

| February 25, 2015 | Parties

Grace, Gratitude and Growth—those three little words were the theme of Mission Hospital’s annual ball at The St. Regis Monarch Beach, and they sum up the philanthropic spirit of the soiree. The evening drew some of the most good-hearted givers in O.C., including Carl Nolet Jr. and wife Janet, whose family has served as the title sponsor for the ninth year; and Margarita and Tom Solazzo, the event’s co-chairs. Guests opened their wallets for everything from trips to Italy to fashion show tickets and netted a record $1.35 million, boosting the medical institution’s comprehensive campaign fundraising total to $194 million—just $6 million shy of completion. –Photos by Lisa Renee Baker Photography
