Red Rose Society Members Luncheon at Neiman Marcus

"The people we help through the Red Rose Society could one day be ourselves,” - Red Rose Society Founder, Jeanne Jones.

The Rose Centerpieces on the Luncheon Tables

The Red Rose Society held a members and new members luncheon February 18th, 2009 at the Neiman Marcus in fashionable Fashion Valley. Among the mix fashionably and appropriately in red, were Red Rose Society Founder Jeanne Jones.

With Jeanne at the helm, "The American Red Cross's Red Rose Society is dedicated to helping San Diego and Imperial Counties become America’s most prepared communities. The mission of the Red Rose Society is to work in partnership with the Red Cross and support the local chapter by advocating preparedness, increasing community awareness of the Red Cross, and fundraising."

And the Red Rose Society raises big funds for emergency response vans.... Nearly 12 so far. A terrific accomplishment.

Among those there and dedicated to helping others in need were Anita Bye, Kathryn Fishback (she couldn't make the event but she was there in spirit), Jordan of Jordan Art Couture, jewelry designer Reena Horowitz, Ellen Zinn, Jeanne Jones and Don Breitenberg, Elisabeth Bergan, Sally B. Thornton, Reinette Levine, Vicky Holly, Heidi Gutierrez, Joyce Gattas, Lyndy Carreiro, April Bolduc, Mary Ann Ginnow, and Sherry Kline.

New members include Debbie Turner, Karen Fox, and Taylor Miller.

Taylor was inspired to join by meeting Jeanne Jones just the week before. The conversation was ten minutes and joining was a done deal. Jeanne's just that kind of smart dynamo to get people involved and to get things done!

And the luncheon had its fun mission too. Lafayette 148, fun, colorful and wearable fashions were informally modeled. Decidedly decadent clutches and satchels from Valentino, Lauren Merkin, and Manolo Blahnik shoes and more were mixed in.

Lunch was delicious and light. Grilled white fish was the entree. I won't confess to dessert!

Oh and the day, February 18th, is forever decreed by the Mayor Jerry Sanders as Jeanne Jones Day! And deservedly so.

Chris Marek, Director, Development and Communications for the American Red Cross San Diego/ Imperial Counties Chapter summed up the day and it's cause thusly. "The Red Rose Society and Jeanne Jones continue to help us preserve the San Diego/Imperial Counties Red Cross Chapter's mission despite the tough economic climate. Having Mayor Sanders proclaim February 18, 2009 as Jeanne Jones Day was befitting of Jeanne's tireless dedication."

The Buzz

The $7,000 Shoe!

Thought you read it wrong didn't you? Christian Louboutin, the 'it' shoe designer for some chic feet, has designed a limited 36 pairs of this shoe for $7,000 minus 5 bucks. Basically works of art, these shoes come in yellow, blue and pink versions. You also get a special box and they come signed by Monsieur Louboutin. Christian Louboutin made his only West Coast appearance at South Coast Plaza...and he was quite a hit. He was also feted at a private dinner the night before.

Can't you just see the insurance agent asking "you want to insure a pair of shoes??"


There were some wild cats seen up in Beverly Hills last week. Moi, Jordan, Jeanne Jones, Barbara Poulos, Heather. We were all wearing cheetah painted coats by Jordan to make a stir for Laurie Marker's upcoming May fundraiser for cheetah conservation. The wow factor was matched equally by the fun factor. And dining at The Ivy was great too!

...........Speaking of The Ivy, ran into the boys from Splash News there. They were hot on fellow diner Fergie. That's newlywed Fergie to you and me, the gal that sang at the famous Brandes Halloween Ball.

.... and speaking of scary non-Halloween material......

Handsome Scott Johnston is considering going diving with the sharks and Neptunic founder Jeremiah Sullivan. Jeremiah will be filming in the Bahamas for an upcoming special by the BBC.... at least the steel mesh shark suit is proven so Scott won't become sushi!
