Promises 2 Kids Hosts Retro Evening with Pat Benatar at Joan Waitt's Estate
When Joan Waitt hosts an event for a cause at her home, you know it's going to be big. The evening of June 2nd, 2010 was no exception as hundreds of guests gathered to support Promises 2 Kids.
There was a VIP catered reception by the Hyatt Regency La Jolla (they catered the dinner too), followed by intense silent auction shopping and dinner.

Hyatt's Robert Armstrong and his team went full throttle on epicurean delights. Dinner started with a Wild Arugula and Spinach Salad, with Grilled California Stone Plum, Crumbled Goat Cheese, Carmelized Sunflowers Seeds accompanied by an Orange Cilantro Emulsion. The main course was an Apricot and Pistachio Stuffed Beef Medallion in a Port Wine Reduction followed by a dessert trio that included a Greek Yogurt Cheesecake.
A lively live auction was followed by a private concert by rock legends Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo. A retro experience for many attendees.
Guests that were there in support of Promises 2 Kids' mission: "to break the cycle of child abuse, through prevention, education and advocacy."
Among those there were Karianne and Tom Forsyth, Karianne wore a long Pucci dress, Laura and Fred Applegate, Katherine Kennedy and Robert Horsman, the Hon. Susan Golding, she's the CEO and President of Promises 2 Kids, Jack Berkman, Gigi Cramer who was just came back from a trip with Ed to the Caribbean (a live auction prize that she won at last year's event), Joan Waitt, she was the gracious hostess and Honorary Co-Chair, Mayor Jerry Sanders who also served as Honorary Co-Chair, and Event Co-Chairs Ann and Ben Haddad.
“As usual, any Ben and Ann Haddad co-chaired event will lead to raising significant resources to improve the quality of life in our region; in this case, the fight against child abuse and neglect in our county" said Drew Schlosberg of the San Diego Union-Tribune. " By all accounts, the event was a booming success.”
Success that is much needed. Child abuse severity is on the rise in San Diego. Promises 2 Kids is a positive light to a better future for San Diego's children and families.
More - Gold Sponsors for the event were Cubic, the Zable Foundation, SAIC, and Bridgepoint Education.
