Net $970,000 plus Reasons A Starry Starry Night

Was a Winner For Children

More Social Diary Event Coverage ....HOME


The 10th Annual Starry Starry Night Gala benefiting Voices for Children net a whopping $970,000 plus September 29th, 2012. Held at the newly renovated Rancho Valencia, the gala drew quite the 'A' list crowd.

Among the many were Co-Chairs Lise Wilson and Steve Strauss, Co-Chairs Debby and Wain Fishburn, Gigi and Ed Cramer, Stacy and Paul Jacobs, Rebecca and Craig Irving, Lynda Forsha and Bob Blanchard, Lisette and Mick Farrell, Lauren and Greg Garbacz, Mary Keough Lyman, Caroline and Nico Nierenberg, Stacy and Don Rosenberg, Jennifer and Richard Greenfield, Iris and Matthew Strauss, and Sheryl and Harvey White.

Sheryl White is the clever gal behind the Grasswalker invention, a nifty device that allows girls in heels to walk on grass safely, while retaining the pretty sexy look of their heels.

Guests were entertained during cocktail hour by guitarist Coco Montoya and his musicians. Rancho Valencia Chef Eric Bauer provided the inspiring canapes and dinner, and then auction time raised nearly $1 million.

And all for a great cause.

Voice for Children "recruits, trains, and supervises Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) on behalf of the more than 5,000 abused, abandoned and neglected children living in San Diego County's foster care system."
