The Jewels of San Diego presented their “Carrousel du Louvre Fashion Runway Extravaganza” on April 9 at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina. Guests gathered to enjoy lunch, auctions, music, dance, and spring and summer fashions to raise much-needed funds for The Arc of San Diego’s work with kids and adults living with disabilities.

In recognition of their support for The Arc, Mayor Jerry Sanders sent over a proclamation naming April 9 “John and Phyllis Parrish, and, Gaby and Richard Sulpizio Day.” The Sulpizios donated $1 million for The Sulpizio Family Arc Center of San Diego. The fashion show was produced by Leonard Simpson. Close to 100 items were donated for the auctions.
