The 27th Annual Camino Health Center Luncheon and Fashion Show

As mentioned in a previous post, last Tuesday I attended the 27th Annual Camino Health Center Luncheon and Fashion Show at the Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel.  The event was sponsored by South Coast Plaza and showcased designers such as Carolina Herrera, Donna Karen, ESCADA, MARNI and St. John (just to name a few).  The event raised $320,000 for the Camino Health Center, a fully-licensed, community-based clinic in San Juan Capistrano.  The Mission Foundation did a phenomenal job of hosting 590 men and women (yes, a very large event) and I had an incredible time mingling, bidding, eating and obsessing over some of my favorite designers.  Thank you so much to the Mission Foundation for having me and I am already looking forward to next year's event!

The event proceeds will support Mission500, a philanthropic effort led by the Mission Hospital Foundation to raise $500 million for the current and future needs of Mission Hospital and its ministries, such as the Camino Health Center.  So far, $150 million has been raised.  If you are interested in contributing to this effort or are interested in learning more about the Foundation, please contact the Foundation at (949)364-7783.
