Starry Starry Night 2014 Celebrates Casas and Voices for Children
Inspired by Van Gogh's painting 'The Starry Night,' guests at the San Diego Polo Club ground enjoyed specialty cocktails under twinkling lights for the Voices For Children gala reception.
Among the notables there were Co-Chairs Jennifer Greenfield and Dr. Richard Greenfield. Jennifer wore a beautiful blue and green hued gown by Douglas Hannant. And of course Grasswalkers for her stilettos.... the very cool invention of Sheryl White enabling gals with heels to walk safely on top of the grass.
Also there were Co-Chair Haeyoung Tang, major contributors Joan and Irwin Jacobs, Lisette and Mick Farrell of the Farrell Family Foundation, and Mary Keough Lyman.
Pamplemousse Grille provided the fine fare including a seafood martini starter for dinner, ON DEMAND'S Bonnie Saldivar-Jones provided the exquisite performers, Janice Dodge the production values, and the band NRG supplied NRG-etic dancing later.
A poignant highlight was the touching story of 2 foster children's journey through the court system to a stable family life.
Jennifer Greenfield summed up the purpose of the evening succinctly. “Richard, Haeyoung, and I are passionate about the mission of Voices for Children, and were honored to co-chair Starry Starry Night this year. We’re thrilled that the event broke all previous records in terms of funds raised, and we netted more than $1,100,000! That amount will mean that 440 foster children will have Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) for a full year, and another 1,760 children will have their cases reviewed and triaged. A total of 2,200 foster children’s lives will be touched, thanks to the big hearts and wonderful generosity of all of our donors.”
All in all... one of the best fundraisers in recent San Diego history.
