The Old Globe Guilders hosts runway show


The Globe Guilders (the women’s support group for the Old Globe Theater) found the perfect recipe for a successful fund-raiser when they decided to combine a haute couture runway show with an elegant luncheon. That winning combination has been filling the coffers of the Globe for the past 17 years.

This year’s Fashion Show and Luncheon Event, held in the Grande Ballroom of the Sheraton Hotel, attracted about 760 supporters and featured stunning designs by the legendary Carolina Herrera (Womenswear’s Designer of the Year in 2004).

The guest list was a who’s who of La Jolla society, with fashionable Valerie Cooper as honorary chair, Joan Jacobs, Jeanne Jones, Lael Kovtun, Toni Bloomberg, Barbara Brown, Marie Chemali, Mary Walker, Joy Furby, Nancy Kronemyer, Kristi Pieper, Dianne York Goldman and Jennifer Greenfield.
