Promise Keepers

| September 28, 2012 | Parties

The Party Hosted at the sprawling La Jolla estate of Joan Waitt, the fourth annual Promises Summer Concert Gala was the ultimate lawn party benefiting Promises2Kids, which helps fight child abuse.The Scene The evening began with a Riviera-sponsored VIP reception and surprise visit by the night’s entertainment, Creedence Clearwater Revisited. With bites from Campine and muddled cocktails from Snake Oil Cocktail Co. in hand, the well-heeled guests took in the stunning sunset over La Jolla Shores while bidding on silent auction items. After dinner and the rousing live auction (think VIP access to the American Music Awards and 10 days in an Italian villa), partygoers rocked out to tunes like “Proud Mary” and “Born on the Bayou.” Best In Show During the Raise the Paddle pledges, three guests donated $50,000, bringing the night’s total to $300,000 to help support the 5,000 children served by Promises2Kids.
