As he walked down off the stage and into the audience to perform “Celebrate Me Home,” Kenny Loggins drew a standing ovation. His Concert for the Children on Oct. 7 in the ballroom of the Hyatt Regency Aventine in La Jolla helped raise funds for the work of the Hospital Infantil de las Californias, which has been providing healthcare for the most needy children on both sides of the border since 1994.

Gala guests were treated to full-out rockin’ versions of “Angry Eyes,” “Whenever I Call You Friend, “ “What A Fool Believes,” and “This Is It!” as the crowd popped up across the room to dance in the aisles.

As the band left the stage, calls for “Kenny!” “Kenny!” brought them back for three more tunes, laughing and shooting each other glances of surprise at the audience’s heartfelt reception.
