One Delightful Day

| February 4, 2014 | Parties

A fashion show from M Missoni was just one of the many highlights of the Friends of CASA (aka Court Appointed Special Advocates) holiday luncheon at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel, where 600 well-dressed guests gathered to help raise funds for neglected local youth. Co-chairwomen Jaynine Warner and Janine Wald, Beril Akcay and celebrity emcee Gregory Zarian looked on as models strutted down the runway in the designer’s vibrant frocks, skirts and tops. Other fab features included a stunner of a silent auction, a gourmet meal and a poignant speech from mentor-advocate Evelyn Gibson. She shared her personal experiences working with abused kids and asked guests to support the cause. And they did just that by grossing $375,000 for the nonprofit’s efforts—and we think that’s the most moving news of all. –Photos courtesy of Happy Photos
