The Party: More than 400 guests gathered at Paradise Point Resort and Spa on Mission Bay for Scripps Health’s 41st annual Mercy Ball. The Scene: Guests were invited to “Experience Paradise,” and experience they did. The divinely dressed attendees swirled into the evening to the music of the James Gang Band. When not noshing on French crêpes with mushroom ragout and blue cheese tenderloin, partygoers sipped on lemongrass panna cotta martinis bayside.
