More Social Diary Event Coverage ....HOME


The Salk Institute for Biological Studies held its 17th Annual Symphony at Salk August 25th, 2012 in their beautiful courtyard in La Jolla. LeAnn Rimes was the featured star of the evening accompanied by the San Diego Symphony.

But first it was cocktails and conversation with guests that included Debbie Turner and Conrad Prebys, David C. Copley, Linda Amamouche and Andrew Shelton, Claire Reiss, Joan and Irwin Jacobs, Valerie and Harry Cooper, Nina and Bob Doede, Robin and Gerry Parsky, Colette Carson Royston and Ivor Royston, Judith Harris and Dr. Robert Singer, and artist Francoise Gilot.

Francoise was married to the very famous Jonas Salk whom the Salk Institute is named after.

Jeffrey Strauss of Pamplemousse Grille did the catering for the event including the very popular mini Kobe Beef burgers for the reception.

With dessert came an equally sweet performance by LeAnn Rimes with the San Diego Symphony, conducted once again by the very masterful guest conductor Thomas Wilkins.

Since 1960, the Salk Institute for Biological Studies has been a national leader for disease research primarily in AIDS, Alzheimer's disease, autism, cancer, diabetes, gene therapy, plant biology and vision.

The Town Gossip

Dr. Darush Mohyi with La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic's Dr. Nasrin Mani and San Diego Police Department's Chief William Lansdowne at the recent Friends of the Badge luncheon supporting the San Diego Police Foundation. Over $152,000 was raised to purchase Intoximeters for road safety, handheld cameras and video recorders and reflective safety vests. Bravo to all of those who support the San Diego Police Foundation!!

The Cheetah Conservation Fund held a fundraiser at the design studio of Jordan. CCF Founder and Executive Director Dr. Laurie Marker is pictured here with the designer Jordan and 2 very big Anatolian Shepherds...the dogs are being used in Africa to non-agressively provide a barrier between cheetahs and animal herds of locals. The plan works!
