The Big Top

| May 7, 2015 | Parties

The circus-themed Scripps Spinoff gala welcomed guests with aerial silk performers, stilt walkers and jugglers. Fun, zany pinwheel decorations and luscious red silk curtains, designed by Janice Dodge, decorated the Hyatt La Jolla.

The event was chaired by Robin Rady, a breast cancer survivor; top doctors included Scripps Health Oncology Medical Directors William Stanton, Michael Kosty and James Sinclair.

Despite a move indoors due to rain,
guests managed to enjoy the evening and net an impressive $1.4 million for cancer research. The live auction was a highlight, with one lucky bidder taking home a puppy. –Photos by Tim Hardy
