Fun To Be a 'Gold Digger'
July 8th, 2006
The Social Diary Columnist & Photographer
They aren't typical 'gold
diggers,' these gals are GOLD Givers. G-O-L-D is an acronym for
'Gifts of Loving Donors.' The Gold Digger committee selects and
supports various San Diego organizations. This year's "Hats
Off to San Diego" luncheon at the Prado Ballroom was themed
appropriately enough, "Magic Through Giving."
Sally Thornton was the Honorary
Chair. Sally as usual, also hosted quite a few tables of beautifully
chapeau'd guests. Sally's guests included Phyliss Parrish in a
bedazzling Southern belle styled chapeau, Carol Karlovich, Joyce
Glazer, Afife Baloyan, Marjie Atwood, Joan Bowes, Anne Evans (Anne
just hosted a beautiful luau at her Catamaran Hotel), Kathleen
Buoymaster, Valerie Cooper, Micki Farrell, Betty Kornreich, Carol
Laventhol and artist Judith Jarcho.
Doreen Schonbrun was also there along with
pretty Event Chair Julie Sarno, and Gold Digger's President Diana
Vuichi. All admiring the hat contest. The contest was fun and
fierce as different organization representatives modeled artistic
hats, all vying for prize money to go to that particular organization.
The $500 Wild Card Hat was won by the Autism
Tree Project Foundation, the Best Theme Hat went to the Star of
India. They received $500 too. Third Prize and $750 went to the
Friends of the Braille Institute. Second Prize and $1,000 went
to the Star of India Auxiliary. And the $2,000 First Prize for
the Fantasy Hat went to the Friends of East County Arts.
And it was fun for all including Susan
Farrell and her mother Darlene Farrell, Kitty Kaufman, Lilo Miller,
Peggy Matthews, Ellen Bryson, and Mary Johnson.
Sally Thornton, a wordsmith, summed the
event's purpose by thanking supporters for “helping the
Gold Diggers make their magic.”
