'Promises 2 Kids' Party
a Real 'Jewel'
The event for Promises 2 Kinds June 20th, 2009 was a night to remember. Host and Event Honorary Chair Joan Waitt opened up her sprawling La Jolla gardens to child abuse prevention supporters.
The evening featured amazing cuisine by the popular seafood eatery Truluck's, conversation with an ocean view, and a stellar performance by singer Jewel.
Guest Jo-Anne Jaffe of Second Chance had this to say after the event. “A powerful cause showcased in an amazing venue on a magical San Diego summer’s evening with an impactful testimony and heartfelt music by Jewel…. A perfect evening with hundreds of philanthropists contributing to help children.”
