Planning Committee

| September 12, 2014 | Parties

The Party
After supporters helped raise $1.1 million for Planned Parenthood at its 51st anniversary dinner in May, Riviera hosted the organization’s top donors at a glittering thank-you party in La Jolla.

The Players
Event chairs David and Ellen Dolgen welcomed guests alongside J. Craig Venter, whose eponymous institute hosted the festivities. Bill Walton, a Venter Institute board member, and David Brenner, UC San Diego vice chancellor for health sciences, hobnobbed over signature Snake Oil cocktails and exotic eats from Waters Catering.

The Scene
Inspired by the institute’s stunning architecture, Janice Dodge Inc. and Tenfold Style created a multilevel experience replete with high-style lounges and lush florals. –Photography by Arielle Vey
