Scripps Spinoff 2012

More Social Diary Event Coverage ....HOME


The 21st Annual Spinoff Auction for Life benefitting the Scripps Cancer Center Stevens Division at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla took place May 31st, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla.

Last year's Co-Chair, Abeer Hage did such a phenomenal job that she was asked to chair this year. And she did so with panache!

Trips to France or Dubai with chocolate tours at ChoCo and more. Guests came, shopped the silent auction items, enjoyed dinner and a live auction that was preceded by a surprise for the chair.... a birthday cake for Abeer Hage.

The Hage's, Chuck, Abeer and George, Tina, Chad and Abeer's sister Amal Risheq


Lots to celebrate including almost $300,000 raised at the silent auction alone, all to benefit the Scripps Cancer Center, Stevens Division and Scripps Polster Breast Care Center.

Among those there were big supporters Sharon and Skeets Dunn, they are phenomenal, Abeer and George Hage, they bought 3 prime tables plus donating a plethora of items aside from being the Title Sponsor with their company Revo Biolabs, also there were Dr. Dianne Rosenberg, Marilyn and Kim Fletcher, the Issa Family Foundation, Dale and Terry Lingenfelder, Dr. Nasrin Mani and the La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic team (Dr. Mani bought 2 tables too as well as donating gift cards to each and every guest), and more support came from Union Bank, and Well Fargo.

Some of the prestigious guests there included SDPD Chief William Lansdowne, Sheriff Bill Gore, and SDPD's 1st Purple Heart Recipient Scott Johnston of the San Diego Social Diary.

Among the fashionable ones there were Abeer Hage of course, Dana Alkasmi, Lynda Kerr, Evva Fenison, Jennifer Greenfield and a fit and fabulous Richard Greenfield. Richard just lost 'XY' pounds and it looks DR. good!

And with enthusiastic support from over 450 attendees and the evening's honoree, the Ellen Browning Scripps Foundation, Scripps Health Care looks to have a healthy future taking great care of its patients!

San Diego Social Diary is proud to have personally contributed a $500 dinner for 8

to Cafe Milano in La Jolla. Cheers!!
