Making Waves

| July 2, 2012 | Parties National

All 160 water warriors were awed by William and Donya Dobkin’s stunning Newport Coast estate, Villa Tesori, when they gathered for Oceana’s cocktail reception, hosted by the nonprofit’s board of directors. With the glittering ocean as her backdrop, Valarie Van Cleave raised the excitement level even higher when she revealed to Ted Danson, Lisa and David Heil, Harriet and Sandy Sandhu, and others that The Bacon Bros. will be performing at the organization’s annual SeaChange Summer Party, set for July 29. The must-attend extravaganza routinely draws Orange County’s top crowd, along with a few Hollywood celebs, who come together to raise funds (more than $4 million in the past four years) and celebrate their shared love of the sea. We’re betting this year’s event will go swimmingly. Photos by Carla Rhea
