Oscar de la Renta stars in a 70-year gala for Old Globe

Fashion plates gather at the Globe Guilders annual Oscar de la Renta luncheon and fashion show every summer and support the Old Globe Theater in high style. This year’s gala, celebrating the Globe’s 70th year and the 50th anniversary of the Globe Guilders, was a virtual who’s who of local philanthropists.

The highlight of the afternoon was the smashing fashion show featuring Oscar’s fabulous fall collection. La Jolla’s own Mary Johnson chaired the event, with Phyllis Parrish as her co-chair.

Among the the La Jollans at the event at the Sheraton Harbor Island Hotel were Valerie Cooper, Marilyn Johns, Toni Bloomberg, Jeanne Jones, Cindy Peterson, Sima Faroozan, Sook Hansen, Carol Hansen, Susan Heller, Cindy Goodman, Hermeen Scharaga, Marie Chemali, Marsha Shahon, Kristi Pieper, Nancy and Bob Kronemyer, Susie Spanos, Judi Freeman, Dolores Smith, Sally Thornton, Carol Winter, Rita Crouch and Susan Clifton.
