Beautiful environments inspire poets, scientists and thinking. And that's exactly the mission of some petal minded parents of La Jolla Elementary School children. They aim to make the near plantless environment of their childrens' school, bloom with vibrant plants and vibrant minds.

And so it follows, the adults at the helm organized and threw an incredible 70's inspired fundraiser called 'La Jolla Rocks.' The event took place June 10th, 2006 at the Ahumada La Jolla hilltop estate. The hosts Guillermo and Katie Riveroll and Sheila Ahumada, greeted guests to an evening of margaritas, fabulous Mr. Taco catered, authentico cuisine, and a whole lot of dancing to Rockola.

Those joining in got into the 70's, rock T-shirt glam. Some of the fun crowd included Lisa and Raul Albanez, Liz and John Andrews, Annica and Bjorn Backlund, Christina Barone, Barb and Walter Birnbaum, Amie and John Baldwin, Ginny and Jon Boland, Dina and Gregg Buckley... Greg's the guy that's been forecasting correctly the housing / mortgage market from a year ago, Emmett and Holly Holden, Kylee Holoch, Marcy and Tom Holthus, Fred and Desiree Kellogg, and Lisa and Joe D'Angelo.

If you couldn't be at the party, there are still many fun additional ways that you can help support beautifying La Jolla Elementary School. Purchasing a 'La Jolla Rocks' t-shirt at Rumors Boutique in the village, or you can donate directly to the endeavor by contacting Dina Buckley at dinab1@san.rr.com or Marcy Holthus at mmholthus@hotmail.com.

But back to the fundraiser at hand. Many were there in the totally cool camoflage 'La Jolla Rocks' shirts and other fine wear. They included Christie and David Duguid, Molly and Ted Eldredge, Alan and Lainie Ezeir, Kera Fitzpatrick, John and Melinda Gaffney, Marnie and George Gavit, and Randi and Bart Hegeler.

Events like these don't just happen though, they happen with a lot of hard work. In this case applause goes to committee members Marcy Holthus, Dina Buckley, Carrie Morris, Angela Rhodes and Nicole Repp. They made the party smooth... like a perfect margarita. A popular drink of the evening.

More there supporting the beautifying cause were Tim and Elise Kjos, Kelly and Steve Lake,
Shelly and Claudio Lana,
Kristee and Tony Pauker, Mary and John Penrith, Vera and Joe Pitrofsky, Wendy and Mark Pullin, Nicole and Dave Repp, Barry and Paola Ruderman, Christina and John Steel, Lance Bridges and Natascha Vossen, Peter and Janet Waldo, Jill and Adam Lenain, Theresa Doyle and Thomas Liu, Laura Wolzon and Eduardo Macagno, Melinda and Kevin Mahony, Simon and Diana Malk, Carrie and Peter Morris, and Shawn and Laure-Anne Parr.

Remember "BLOOM. It is what flowers do when watered. It is what our children do when inspired."
