Good Medicine

They came to Mission Hospital’s Holiday Gala because they care—for their friends, family and one another—and they showed it by helping to net $1.1 million for the medical institution. Having a ball along the way, VIPs like Janet and Carl Nolet, Richard and Sherri Medina, and Ginny and Mark Wetterau filled The St. Regis for a private reception before joining the black-tie-clad crowd for cocktails, a silent auction and a decadent dinner that featured a live auction. Eager bidders couldn’t resist the chance to attend Chanel’s fall-winter collection show at Paris Fashion Week—and receive a private tour of Coco Chanel’s apartment. (So chic!) Dancing till midnight closed out the affair, and all 600 guests went home knowing they’d made a healthy impact on their community. Photos by Val Westover
