Borrowing from the grandeur and romance that is Rome, a Passeggiata! (evening stroll) unfolded at La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club on Aug. 4 under the guise of a Las Patronas Jewel Ball — Jewel Ball number 66 to be exact.

Guests enjoyed cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction and dinner, with music provided by Anthology, and later in the evening, Side Effect. The beneficiaries of the proceeds include Alpha Project for the Homeless, American Red Cross, After-School All-Stars, La Jolla Historical Society, Fleet Science Center, San Diego Hospice, Senior Community Centers and the Zoological Society of San Diego.
