The La Jolla Music Society hosted SummerFest’s 25th Anniversary Gala on Aug. 13 at the home of Joan and Irwin Jacobs in La Jolla. Barbara Enberg and Linda Howard co-chaired the soiree. Upon arrival, guests were greeted with an array of drinks, including a special anniversary cocktail, as they mingled over hors d’oeuvres on the terrace overlooking the ocean.

Next came an intimate music performance in the Jacob’s auditorium, which Irwin Jacobs informed the crowd was accommodating some 250 guests that night. The hour-long concert featured music director Cho-Liang Lin and SummerFest artists the Assad Brothers, Éclat Quartet and Valerie and Dominique Kim.

After the concert, guests gathered on the heated patio for a candlelit dinner helmed by chefs Andrew Spurgin, Antonio Friscia and Brian Malarkey. After dinner, it was all about dancing. Proceeds from the event will benefit the education, outreach and artistic programs of La Jolla Music Society.

Silver Sponsors included Mary Ann Beyster, Valerie and Harry Cooper,

Pauline Foster, Rafael and Marina Pastor, Conrad Prebys and Debbie Turner,

Peter and Peggy Preuss, Stacy and Don Rosenberg, Sheryl and Harvey White.

Table Sponsors included Rita and Richard Atkinson, Elaine and Dave Darwin, Barbara and Dick Enberg, Joy and Ed Frieman and Helene Kruger
