Cirque du Seacrest Masquerade Ball 2010
The Cirque du Seacrest Masquerade Ball celebrated local heroes for its 32nd annual gala at the Hilton La Jolla February 6th, 2010.
The heroes were not only the supporters of Seacrest Village Retirement Communities, but the supportive safety members of the community, including the Encinitas Fire Department and the Poway Fire Department.
Attendees were Encinitas Fire Department’s Chief Mark Muir, Fire Marshall Bob Scott, Deputy Chief Joe Bunn, Deputy Chief Scott Henry, Captain Mike Daigle, Captain Jorge Sanchez, Captain Mike Terlouw and Engineer Mike Goralski. Poway Fire Department’s members there included Captain Robert Stanberry, Engineer Joseph Del Bono, Firefighter Kelly Delotch, Firefighter Jonathan Wadley and Firefighter James Kleppel.
The evening started with cocktails, sushi and mingling. A myriad of glittery-masked “cirque” sorts twirled among guests as well.
Among the guests were Honorary Chairs Esther and Bud Fisher, Jo Arenson, Suzi and Bernie Feldman, Mary and Jon Epsten, Teddie Pincus, Francy Starr, Elaine and Jeffrey Lipinsky, Melissa and Michael Bartell, Barbara Bloom, Susan and Richard Ulevitch, Bobbi and Sol Nagorner, Sheila Potiker, Jeanne Jones and Don Breitenberg, and Jordan.
As in, the designer Jordan, who donated a custom handpainted gown for the live auction. Lee Goldberg was the high bidder on that item, though she was already wearing an original Jordan that evening.
More included Frank Goldberg with Lee, Tamara Strauss and Todd Frank, Alberta and Charles Feurzeig and Joyce and Ed Glazer.
City of Encinitas Councilman Jim Bond was also there. How many times do you think he gets teased about being the “James Bond of Encinitas?”
Russ T. Nailz emceed, played auctioneer and added his 'usual unusual' wit.
Dinner served included a duo of filet of beef and sea bass.
More live auction items included a coveted dinner at the fire stations. It went for thousands.
An exciting twist to the evening was the specially produced Cirque du Seacrest show. Tony Caligagan of Heatwave Productions put together local and national members for an inspiring show of acrobatics. It was riveting.
After the show guests enjoyed a tempting dessert buffet and coffee bar. Dancing to the Society Beat followed.
The evening, organized by the Women’s Auxiliary, benefits the Seacrest Village Retirement Communities’ mission to provide excellence and quality of life while embracing traditional Jewish and cultural values.
“I particularly love the fact the residents are in attendance at the event. Life’s last round should hold many joys,” Jordan said.
