Hollywood Style

| January 1, 2014 | Parties

The 350 guests who attended Orange Coast Memorial Foundation’s 11th annual gala-themed An Evening in Hollywood-arrived at the Island Hotel in Newport Beach dressed for the part in stunning attire. Perhaps the grandest dame of all was Suzie Schmidtz, who turned heads when she entered the soiree in a gorgeous of-the-moment metallic gown. The ballroom served as an elegant backdrop for dinner and dancing. But the real goal of the evening was to raise funds for the hospital’s new emergency pavilion. Thanks to a lust-have list of silent auction items and the generosity of supporters, the night’s tally hit $220,000. That’s a happy ending!
