The 2011 Globe Gala July 30th, 2011 in Balboa Park to benefit the Old Globe Theatre's educational outreach programs was a hit in so many ways. First over $1 million was raised during the fund in need portion with Honoree Audrey Geisel starting the donations with $250,000, Co-Chair Darlene Shiley raising her hand for the $200,000 marker, and Debbie Turner and Conrad Prebys contributing a solid $100,000.

This is in addition to the generous millions that the aforementioned have given over the years.

And then of course there is the very generous gift Audrey Geisel gave years back. Production rights to the very popular How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Co-Chairs Darlene Shiley and Sheryl White with Honoree Audrey Geisel, and Globe's very talented CEO and Executive Producer, Lou Spisto

Other very generous guests there included Karen and Don Cohn, event Co-Chair Sheryl White and Harvey White, Carolyn Yorston-Wellcome and Bard Wellcome, Mary Beth Adderly, Gillian and Tony Thornley, Laurie Mitchell and Brent Woods (of Brandes Investments), and Erna and Andrew Viterbi.

The Viterbi's hosted the over-the-top Globe Gala 2011 Patrons' Party July 18th, 2011.

More there included Martha and George Gafford, Bea and Bob Epsten, Hal Fuson (Hal's president of the Board of Directors) and Pam Fuson, Lisa and Steve Altman, Jo Ann Kilty and Charles Freebern, (Jo Ann was Honorary Chair of the Globe Guilders' fashion show with Naeem Khan), Joan and Irwin Jacobs, Kathy and John Hattox, Jean and Gary Shekhter, Joye Blount and Jessie Knight Jr. of SDG&E, Lynda and Richard Kerr, Colette and Ivor Royston, Salah Hassanein and Zandra Rhodes, Pamela and Jerry Cesak, Caroline and Nico Nierenberg, Dr. Renee Schatz, and Valerie and Harry Cooper.

That's Valerie Cooper who wore a stunning Jenny Packham gown.

More in glamorous gowns included Colette Royston in Naeem Khan, Iris Strauss in Escada, Karen Cohn in Oscar de la Renta, Sheryl White in an electric blue gown by Douglas Hannant, Emma Zuckerman in Carolina Herrera, Lynda Kerr in Pucci and Rocio Flynn in a very 'boned' Gucci gown.

The evening started with cocktails and silent auction bidding in the Alcazar Garden and continued with yet another stellar performance by Hershey Felder as Maestro: The Art of Leonard Bernstein.

It's Hershey Felder's third appearance at the Globe. The others being George Gershwin Alone and The Great American Songbook.

Patrons are hoping it won't be his last. Hershey Felder is a one man phenom of words, wit and über talent on the piano. Steinway of course.

Hershey Felder very magnanimously shifted the standing ovation applause to Audrey Geisel following his performance.

The evening continued with brief mist and then a clearly spectacular after party replete with dinner by the Sheraton, and dancing...that's non-stop dancing to the new 'it' band Impulse!
