Congratulations to the Globe Guilders for Celebrating Couture 2015!

On Tuesday, May 12, the Globe Guilders hosted their 25th annual Fashion Show fundraiser, Celebrating Couture 2015, presented with Neiman Marcus at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel. Nearly 600 people attended and enjoyed a champagne reception as well as live and silent auctions, a luncheon and fashion show, featuring the 2015 Fall Couture collection by Naeem Khan.

Globe Guilder Suzie Turner Chaired the event, and she was joined by her Co Chairs, Angie De Caro and Linda Van Vark. Globe Historian Darlene Davies was the Honorary Chair in a year which also marks the organization's 60th anniversary.

A special thank you also to the lead underwriters: Ann Davies, Peggy Matthews, Audrey S. Geisel and the Dr. Seuss Fund, Sheryl and Harvey White, Sycuan Casino, and Media Partners Giving Back and Ranch & Coast.
