On May 24th, 2007, guests of the 16th Annual Spinoff Auction benefiting Scripps Cancer Center, Stevens Division entered a Tuscany-esque party, to celebrate life. The venue was the Hyatt Regency La Jolla. And so it follows that the theme was appropriately titled 'Treasures of Tuscany: A Toast to Life."
The Honorees were Pearl Dunn, and Charles aka Skeetz Dunn, and his wife Sharon. The Scripps Cancer Center has special meaning to the Dunn family. The Center provided great care when Pearl needed it. The Dunn family has now supported Scripps for more than 25 years.
Many were there to accolade the Dunn's and celebrate life. Among them were Event Co-Chairs Jane Marshall, and Bobbi Martini, with her husband Ken Martini, Denise and Jeff Bowman, Terry and Dale Lingenfelder, Ginger and David Levy, Elaine and Dana Launer, Carey and Jim Cimino, Jen and Mike Carroll, Bob Morris, Ruth and Paul Jacobowitz, Tony and John Bloomberg, Loraine and Issac Levy, Judy and Peter Corrente, Ellen and David Dolgen, Cheri and John Engle, Phyllis and Daniel Epstein, Lindsay and Brian Issel, Eve and Gary Fybel, Carol and Harold Shively, James Sinclair, Joan Stevens, Patsy and David Marino, Dorothy and Bill Menish, Lollie and Bill Nelson, Sue and Jim Ogle, Laura Robbins, Yvonne and Roy Polatchek, Jeanette and Bryron Webb, and Marcia and John Trombold.
That's Dr. Trombold who 10 years ago took Pearl Dunn under his care. Pearl previously had had two unsuccessful surgeries on the East Coast. Under Dr. Trombold's care, Pearl is now cancer free. And she just celebrated her 90th birthday too!
