Mission Possible

| February 23, 2012 | Parties National

The scene was Mission Hospital’s 16th annual gala; its MO was to raise funds for its $500 million campaign. And the 660 attendees who filled the ballroom at the St. Regis Monarch Beach did their part by helping to net more than $960,000 for the medical institution. And they had a good time along the way: Gala chairwomen Mimi Johnson and Jacqueline Du Pont, Janet and Carl Nolet Jr., and other VIPs enjoyed a cocktail reception, gourmet dinner, and music and dancing. Among other highlights: a luxe lineup of silent and live auction items. (Who can resist a South African safari?) By the end of the night, all agreed that the hospital’s Mission500 initiative was well on its way to meeting its goal. Photos by Val Westover
