'Fiesta Del P.A.W.S.'

Chaired by Esther Nahama and Matthew Midgett


Fiesta Del P.A.W.S was held June 1st, 2008 at the very lovely Spanish home of Bobbie Bohannan's high atop in Mission Hills. Parking could have been tricky, but Fiesta Del PAWS Co-Chairs Esther Nahama and Matthew Midgett brilliantly organized troops of drivers with golf carts to shuttle guests and their four legged friends to the party.

Yes, this is one party where well behaved dogs are welcomed. Animal lovers too!

And they came in droves. Among the mix were Carol Karlovich, Mary Walker, Judy and Jack White, Doreen and Dr. Myron Schonbrun with their rescue Lily, Deb Holfler, VMD, Bill Nanninga, actress Merrylyn Ross, Mary Ellen Bloomingdale sans her standard poodles, Dianne York-Goldman, Don Caulfield, Patti and Coop Cooprider, Melanie Brown with James Quinones, Richard with Ernie Rivera, Jimmy Sullivan, Alberto Cortes, Judith Jarcho, Evva Fenison, Ed Richards and Warren Kendrick, and Scott Johnston with Kima of course.

Kima the RunAway Bride ditched the wedding dress for this year's event, and went wild instead in a custom Jem Designs of La Jolla gown with leopard, pink tulle and zebra striped bows. Designer Jemima Garcia made the gown reversible too. Very fetching.

And so were a host of other dogs, big, small, all with tails wagging. There was one cat so to speak. Oscar winning songwriter and singer Carol Connors was there. Replete with cat ears. Carol also does a wicked porpoise imitation! Very talented.

Another high profile animal lover there was Denise Brown. Denise is on the Board for the Nicole Brown Foundation, a foundation whose mission statement states they are dedicated to "pledge our time, our energy and our voices in an effort to educate the national and international communities to the dangers of domestic violence. We help organizations that shelter and protect families in crisis, support long term solutions and work with educational programs specializing in rehabilitation and job training. We will continue our work until domestic violence is eradicated."

And with that in mind, Denise Brown related that they help direct people who are trying to escape domestic violence but want to take their wonderful pets too.

KUSI Style Guy Leonard Simpson was there. Not just as a guest, but a judge too for a fashionable parade of doggies dressed in their best.

All for charity, all for PAWS. PAWS helps out people in financial or physical need to provide for their pets' basic essentials like food, vet care, and even a daily walk. Because sometimes man's best friend is their only friend.

Generous sponsors for the event included Jordan Art Couture, PETCO Foundation, Followed Dream Ranch, Stella Artois, Zenspiration Gardens, Contessa's Kitchen, The French Gourmet, Major Market, Stella Artois, Tommy Bahama, and Tiffany & Co.
