Seacrest Village Gala Starring
"My girls and I were thrilled to be part of this evening, and part of this wonderful organization. The combined efforts of our entire committee, and the Seacrest Staff made this evening a success. Our sincere thanks to everyone who came and lent their support! With tremendous appreciation,"
- Lee Goldberg, Event Co-Chair
Burl Stiff, Society Writer for the Union Tribune had it spot on regarding the Seacrest Village Gala. There were quite a few women wearing Jordan gowns as he noted. But we'll get back to that later. There were quite a lot of generous people there too. As over $600,000 was raised February 21st, 2009 at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine. And it was all to benefit the very worthy people who reside at Seacrest Village.
The party was themed "Let's Party on Broadway,' and Broadway it was with the one and only fabulous Rita Moreno as the headline entertainer. That's Tony, Emmy, Oscar and Grammy award winning Rita Moreno!
Among the many there were Co-Chairs Suzi Feldman, Deanna Goldberg and Lee Goldberg. Fellow Co-Chair Anne Nagorner (part of the Goldberg Family) had an unexpected family emergency but she was there in spirit.
And it is that caring spirit that pervades supporters of Seacrest Village. Attendee Susan Ulevitch observed the following. "It is always a privilege to attend the Seacrest Village Gala .... a small way to support seniors in our community. (With whom we seem to be getting closer in age!) The party this year was beautiful and had the feel of a family affair with long time San Diego leaders, the Goldberg and Epsten families, involved as chairs and honoree."
That's Mary and Jon, Lynn and Bert, Bea and Robert Epsten. Mary Epsten's involvement with Seacrest started in childhood when she would visit residents. Mary has continued that involvement for the last eighteen years as President of the Women's Auxiliary for Seacrest Village. So it is not a surprise that Mary Epsten was chosen as the evening's honoree.
More there included Valerie Cooper in Lanvin with her husband Harry on her arm. They scheduled a trip to the Bahamas around this event.
Others there included Lee Clark and Jerry Pikolysky, Sarah B.and John Rebelo, Lael and Jay Kovtun, Ann and Ian Campbell of the San Diego Opera, Sally B. and John M. Thornton, Peggy Stephenson of Tiffany's, Jeanne Jones and Don Breitenberg, Barbara Bloom and Sheila and Jeff Lipinsky.
Now back to the Jordan reference at the top.
Sheila Lipinsky had the winning bid for the custom Jordan Art Couture hand painted gown. The gown will be paired with a Reena Horowitz necklace.
More there wearing Jordan included Jeanne Jones, winning bidder Sheila Lipinsky, Jordan the designer herself, and Lee Goldberg in a stunning red themed floral Jordan accented by a floral accent on one shoulder, and a rather dazzling smile.
Lee and Frank Goldberg have a big reason to smile. The Goldbergs have been tremendous supporters for Seacrest Village Retirement Communities for many, many years. And when you raise over $600,000 in one evening, it's no wonder Lee's smile was radiant!!
