and Harry Cooper, The Halerie's on the "Hot List"
27th, 2005 - The 'who's hot' list includes a couple
who are 20 years strong. Valerie and Harry Cooper
or the Halerie's, as they are affectionately
now known, have had a long devotion to supporting San Diego causes.
The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, The Jewel Ball,
the UCSD Cardiovascular Ball, American Friends of Zandra Rhodes
Textile Museum, the San Diego Museum of Art, the Rebecca and John
Moores UCSD Cancer Center.... you get the idea. And they
support and chair these and many other events with grace.
of San Diego's prime 'givers and shakers', this couple has led
an interesting life. Harry, the Versace wearing half of the Halerie's,
made his fortune through computer education programs, formerly
owning the Sports Arena ie the IPay Arena, and building and owning
the Torrey Villas. Valerie, always a fashion plate in Oscar de
la Renta, Marc Bower and more, lives part of her life at committee
meetings, chairing events solo, sometimes as Halerie. The other
part of her life is practicing and competing in equestrian events,and
she wins, and traveling with Harry.
Halerie's are quite fond of Aspen, in season, Europe, and an occasional,
elegant, hut foray in Tahiti and such.
Valerie and Harry Cooper, aka the Halerie's,
SDSD salutes your kindness and your
contribution to San Diego's many organizations.
