Doctor's Orders

| January 2, 2015 | Parties

The Party
Committed to ending family homelessness, guests raised $1.25 million when Solutions for Change hosted famed neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson for An Evening to Remember at Omni La Costa Resort & Spa.

The Players
NFL legend Brett Favre surprised Adidas Group North America President Mark King, the event emcee, with a video message kicking off the evening’s stirring program. Afterward, Carson spoke of overcoming his impoverished roots in Detroit, then answered audience questions moderated by Rep. Darrell Issa.

The Scene
Furious bidding ensued over a pair of custom motorcycles, but the evening’s real showstopper came with a patron’s generous $150,000 paddle raise. Spare change? Hardly. –Photography by Bekah Peace
