This season’s Gala Ball is set for September 8, but the celebration began just before twilight on August 16, when Barbara and David Cline opened their bayside home for the traditional Patron Party to thank Gala underwriters.
The elegant event included welcoming steel pan drum music, imaginative cocktails and fine wine (thanks to Bluewater Grill, Sophie and Larry Cripe and DANUTA Label Cabs), and sumptuous hors d’oeuvres—all in a glorious bayside setting.
The evening’s picturebook sunset was perfectly timed for welcoming words from Gala Chair Beth Phelps, encouraging words from Managing Director Paula Tomei and Artistic Director Marc Masterson and thanks all around—to the hosts, the Gala Committee and the underwriters.
Throughout the night, partygoers posed for photos, but not without a little impromptu fun (see slide show) which all goes to prove that Gala supporters like to party.
And they’ll be partying again at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort & Spa on September 8. For more information about SCR’s “Setting the Stage” Gala Ball, call Director of Development Susan Reeder at (714) 708-5518.
