Bob and Gregg Smith graciously accepted the accolades given to them when they were honored for their generosity and support of Five Acres and their efforts to prevent child abuse and neglect. Five Acres serves more than 4,500 children and their family members every year.
The benefit, held June 11 at the San Gabriel Country Club, raised nearly $150,000 for the 123-year-old Altadena-based agency.
Lorraine Reaume and Cathy Weber were the chairs of the fun and lively party, which was themed, “Eastside Boardwalk.”
The invitation read, “Slip back in time to Atlantic City at the dawn of Prohibition, where you can sip on bubbly and enjoy an open bar, carnival games, a premium silent auction and an exclusive wine wall presented by redwhite+bluezz.”
Many of the guests got into the ambience of the evening by wearing garb from the 1920s. Some of the ladies wore beaded “flapper” dresses with pearls cascading to their hemlines. Others added pretty feathered cloche hats to complete their ensembles. Fedora hats were popular with the men, as were spats.
