О нас пишут...

Сегодня увидела статью в газете о себе в связи с летними скачками. Было интересное мероприятие, я написала специально картину для СFF, собрали 50000 долларов больным детям со всего аукциона. Я в первый раз попала на скачки в Дель Мар, поэтому готовилась. Правда,  хотя и собрались самые сливки общества Сан Диего, почему-то мало кто в шляпах пришел и вообще абсолютно все были минимум в 2 раза старше нас. 
Мою картину на аукционе выкупила дама в возрасте и мы ее месяц решали куда везти к ней в дом в Сан Диего  или в другой штат. В конце она подарила ее своему старинному другу из Техаса и ее отослали к нему. Он после операции был очень рад такому неожиданному и приятному подарку. Позвонил мне лично поблагодарить за подарок от BG. Так что получилось два полезных дела за раз сделать for people in need.

SOCIAL SCENE: Track hosts fun for CF Foundation supporters 

The supporters of the North County Patrons of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation know how to have fun at the races ---- they have been gathering at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club for 30 years.

The party of 200 met in the sixth-floor Il Palio Room for a buffet lunch, auctions, and betting and cheering. Their "Day at the Races" was July 19, the second day of the meet.

This year they earned $50,000. In 2011, they raised nearly $30,000.

Acclaimed actress Marion Ross was a repeat guest, and was presented with an inscribed crystal vase for her years of support of the foundation.

She assured her friends she was still acting as she reported, "I just came back from Toronto where I was playing in ‘Lost in Yonkers' where I was an old mean German Grandma Kurnitz, with a limp and a cane. Who wouldn't love playing that? ... There were waves of hate coming over the footlights."

Pamela Couvignou, associate executive director of CFF, gave the yearly report.

"Something really special happened this year. In January, the FDA approved Kalydeco, the first drug in the history of cystic fibrosis to treat the underlying defect of this genetic mutation," she said, to whoops and applause from the guests. "The patients who are now on this new drug have experienced increased lung capacity, they are breathing better and better, and they're expected to add decades to their lifetimes.

"And this is all because of you and events like this. So if you ever think that you are not making a difference, you definitely are," she said.

Jennifer Ferguson also spoke. She has an 11-year-old son and a 6-year-old daughter with CF who take 35 pills a day. "It is a daily disease that gets worse as time goes on," she said. "But the money that you raise today will extend my children's lives."

Elena Bulatova, an artist originally from Russia, who learned about this event two weeks in advance, painted a colorful horse racing scene (framed, but the paint was still wet) in time to auction it for the gathering. She consulted photographs of dramatic finishes to inspire her work.

The Seventh Race, named in honor of the foundation's 30th anniversary, was five furlongs on the turf for fillies. It was won by a Barry Abrams trainee, Lindz Winz ridden by Edwin Maldonado. She won by a nose. Judi Hedrick and Joan Higbee went to the Winner's Circle to make the presentation

The Honorary Chair is founder Debra Lusardi, who also received an inscribed vase

The co-chairs of the event are Judi Hedrick and Martha Switzer.

The rest of the committee included Joan Amberson, Patty Barberio, Terry Cornelius, Linda Fogal, Franci Free, Jean Grossman Joan Higbee, Lisa Higbee, Mary Matheson, Gloria Rombotis, Margaret Ulloa and Judy Williamson.

Presenting sponsors were Ralph and Fay Johnson.
