A family that’s taken some 30 foster kids into its home during the past 15 years—and ended up adopting 10—definitely deserves to be honored! So, at the 25th annual Childhelp O.C. Fashion Show & Luncheon at The Island Hotel, Eric and Jaci Hasemeyer received the Children’s Friend Award. South Coast Plaza’s always amazing Kathryn Glassmyer directed the fashion show, after which some 350 attendees, including Beverly Cohen and special guest Connie Stevens, moved to the Palm Garden for lunch. It was our first time at the gala, but it certainly won’t be our last.
