Rock legend Foreigner headlined The Bishop’s School annual gala, “Say You Will,” on April 16, held on the school’s La Jolla campus. The dress code was “Rock ‘n’ Roll Chic” as parents, alumni and friends bid on auction items, grazed the dinner stations and desserts ‘n’ cheeses bar, and then moved and grooved to a private concert by the band whose legacy includes the mega hits “Hot Blooded” “Feels Like the First Time,” “Cold as Ice,” “Waiting for a Girl Like You,” “I Want to Know What Love Is,” “Heart Turns to Stone,” “I Don’t Want to Live Without You” and the ever-relevant “Say You Will.” (1987)
