Hearts of Gold

| April 8, 2015 | Parties National

It was a dazzling party before the party when Black, Starr & Frost’s Alfredo Molina and Renee Dee, with American Heart Association O.C. Executive Director Melissa Morales, hosted a kickoff soiree for the nonprofit’s upcoming ball in the jeweler’s posh Newport salon. Set for May 9, the annual black-tie gala is getting new life—thanks to the trio, who is working to bring a larger focus on education, and the event’s first women’s leadership committee. Some 50 well-heeled ladies gathered to discuss the details while savoring tasty canapes from Fig & Olive and admiring BSF’s gorgeous gems. Even more touching, the brilliant brand has donated $1 million-plus to a plethora of charities—from Orangewood Children’s Foundation to Big Brothers Big Sisters to, of course, AHA. And that takes heart. –Photos by Ann Chatillon
