7 Hoods, Robin, and 5 Gala Chair Beauties ..... the Globe Gala 2010

Page 1 of 5

(followed by The Buzz!!)


It was a flashback to the era of the 60's in Chicago as the Old Globe Theatre debuted Robin and the 7 Hoods July 31st, 2010. The fundraiser gala night started early with cocktails and silent auction bidding in the Alcazar Courtyard in Balboa Park. Guests sipped champagne, and perused and bid on some incredible auction items like the 5 day shopping spree to Harrods in London.

Among the well dressed turnout were the very fashionable. Iris Strauss wore a just right beaded midnight blue gown by Badgley Mischka, Tanya Brandes wore a cheering gown by John Galliano, Jennifer Greenfield was elegant in simple Ralph Lauren Couture, Sheryl White chose a silky Pamela Roland, beauty Sheri Jamieson had a mysterious and pretty 'tattoo' on her right shoulder... her gown was pretty too, Colette Royston wore an intricately beaded Oscar de la Renta, Nina Doede chose a silk taffeta gown by Oscar de la Renta, Lee Clark wore elegant Escada Couture, Lynda Kerr wore strapless lacy Armani, and Maree Mossmer was pretty in Christian LaCroix.

Lou Spisto, Executive Director of the Old Globe, with his magnificent 5 Gala Chairs; Debbie Turner, Sandy Redman, Valerie Cooper, Deni Jacobs and Karen Cohn


The Gala Chairs, Karen Cohn, Valerie Cooper, Deni Jacobs, Sandy Redman and Debbie Turner were to be commended not just for their extraordinary skills organizing this big 75 year event celebration, but they looked phenomenal too!

Valerie Cooper wore red Roberto Cavalli, Sandy Redman wore Elie Saab, Karen Cohn had on a pretty floral strapless gown by Dolce & Gabbana, Deni Jacobs was the golden girl in a beaded dress she found in Las Vegas, and Debbie Turner was beautifully understated as usual.... this time in Pamela Roland.

Guys in the mix that had standout flair included David Copley with his sparkling Louis Vuitton shoes and subtly tasseled jacket, and Jeff Jacobs. Jeff wore a fabulous 'rat pack-esque' ensemble from shoes to jacket to match the theme of Robin and the 7 Hoods. Jet black with the right touch of pizzazz.

But the gala was not just about glamour and fashion.... it was about celebrating 75 years of world class theatre at the Old Globe.... to be continued...enjoy the first page of photos!

The Column will continue on Pages 2, 3, & 4 tomorrow
