Over the last 34 years, the auxiliary has raised more than $7.3 million in support of Camino Health Center, affiliated with Mission Hospital.
San Juan Capistrano , CA – Highlights of designer winter collections were showcased at the Camino Health Center Auxiliary Fashion Show and Luncheon, presented by South Coast Plaza, on November 15, 2019 at the Monarch Beach Resort.
This year’s New York style runway presentation featured curated looks by major European and American retailers at South Coast Plaza, including Bally, Camilla, Escada, Intermix, Lafayette 148 New York, Maje Paris, Ralph Lauren, Saks Fifth Avenue, Sandro Paris, Tadashi Shoji and Weekend Max Mara. Informal modeling was provided by David Yurman, during the reception.
Among the highlights of the event were raffle drawings for a dream staycation in a five-bedroom home in Dana Point donated by Barbara Hamilton, a Thanksgiving Tablescape that included fine china and crystal and Cartier champagne donated by Gaye Birtcher and Matrice Varela and a Porshe Experience Package. In addition, a special One in One Hundred drawing featuring a stunning 18 karat yellow gold, diamond and cultured pearl necklace, valued at $5,000 graciously donated by Jean-Jacques Mamie Fine Jewelry.
Volunteer leaders play a vital role in the success of the event. We thank Honorary Chair, Charlene Jessup and event co-chairs, Teresa Bell and Margaret Kalimada for their dedication and countless hours of planning.
Since the auxiliary was founded in 1984, it has raised more than $7.3 million and supported more than one million patient visits at Camino Health Center. A federally qualified health center with locations in San Juan Capistrano, San Clemente and Lake Forest, Camino Health Center is devoted to meeting the health care needs of uninsured and underinsured residents; the center depends heavily on financial support from the community.
The proceeds from the fashion show will allow Camino Health Center to provide vital primary medical care, mental health and wellness services, family dental care, optometry and nutrition care.
