Among the supporters there were Marsha and Bill Chandler, Lee Clark and Jerry Pikolysky, Ellen and David Dolgen, Martha and Ed Dennis, Ruth and Paul Jacobowitz, Drs. Stacy and Paul Jacobs, Joan and Irwin Jacobs, Linda Chester and Kenneth Rind, Melissa and Michael Bartell, and Gail and Ralph Bryan.

Guests continued on to dinner which included tasty slow braised Prime Beef Short Ribs with horseradish foam and Barolo demi glace, celery root, Yukon Potato puree and steamed California pencil asparagus bundle with Meyer Lemon and Giuseppe's fabulous EVOO plus salt roasted Hazelnut powder. Dessert choices included Dark Chocolate Frangelico lollipops rolled in Hazelnuts, Pistachio shortbread cookies with Vanilla icing, and Social Diary fave, Carrot Cup Cakes with cream cheese frosting and crushed walnuts. All by Giuseppe's Fine Catering of course!

La Jolla Playhouse's Artistic Director Christopher Ashley and La Jolla Playhouse's Managing Director Michael Rosenberg welcomed guests, presented a tribute to NYC based casting directors Rachel Hoffman, Will Cantler, and Bernie Telsey of Telsey + Company, and acknowledged the passings and incredible contributions of Theodore Cranston and Sheila Potiker.

Sheila Potiker was the Former Vice Chair of the Board, and the very generous and understated donor, who with her husband Hughes Potiker, were the main funding for the Potiker Theatre at the La Jolla Playhouse.

Theodore Cranston was the Former Chair of the Board. He, along with Geri Ann Warnke chaired the Capital Campaign which did so much to promulgate the La Jolla Playhouse. Under his watch, Des McAnuff was brought back for a second tenure as Artistic Director which included the birth of such Broadway mega-hits as Jersey Boys.

There was live music on stage by Ruby Blue and in-the-moment illustrations by Michael Arthur followed by a stellar performance by award winning actor Peter Gallagher. His cabaret-style performance of popular favorites and stories from his career on Broadway, film and TV, plus his magnetic good looks proved quite enchanting.

More there enjoying the festivities were Miriam and David Smotrich, Jim Sylvester, Laleh and Alex Roudi, Julie and Lowell Potiker, Ramin Pourteymour and Aloha Taylor, Margret and Nevins McBride, Sheryl and Harvey White, Barbara and Karl ZoBell, Karen and Don Cohn, Hugh Davies, Elaine and Murray Galinson, and Tammy and Larry Hershfield.

The party continued with dancing to the tunes of Sue Palmer, the Queen of Boogie Woogie.

All proceeds from this event will benefit the La Jolla Playhouse's New Play Development and Education Outreach programs.
