The Golden Age

| August 5, 2014 | Parties

Balboa Bay Resort was transformed into a setting befitting the glamour of Old Hollywood for Human Options’ Serious Fun gala, which raised $2 million for the charity’s efforts to help victims of domestic violence. The 475 guests arrived in their vintage-style best, then savored cocktails by the pool and bid on silent auction items before heading into the ballroom for a dinner program honoring retired Justice Sheila Prell Sonenshine and her family. And then the A-list crowd learned that a surprise $1 million grant from the Argyros Family Foundation would make it an evening to remember. A true Hollywood ending. –Photos by Ann Chatillon
