Beckstrand Cancer Foundation’s Diamond & Pearl Ball

The Balboa Bay Club was transformed into a Parisian cabaret for Beckstrand Cancer Foundation’s Moulin Rouge-themed Diamond & Pearl Ball—and the star-studded lineup of guests dripped with jewels for the big night. Beckstrand national spokesperson Eva La Rue—of CSI: Miami fame—honoree, cancer survivor and actress Fran Drescher, gala chairwoman Renetta Caya and others sipped Moulin Rouge cocktails and enjoyed entertainment from burlesque cancan dancers, natch! Among the other highlights: Lugano Diamonds’ live auction package, featuring a trip to Tel Aviv. With all that dazzle, it’s no surprise the gala raised $1.3 million and left attendees longing for a getaway to the City of Light. “I am so proud to be a part of a charity organization that supports cancer patients during their time of need in such a unique and meaningful way.” –Renetta Caya, chairwoman of the Beckstrand Cancer Foundation’s Diamond & Pearl Ball.
