The Country Friends will recognize longtime philanthropist Joan Waitt as honorary chair of the 2024 Art of Fashion runway show and luncheon.

Co-chairs are Tamara Lafarga-Joseph and MJ Wittman, who are also deeply involved in San Diego County’s nonprofit community. “This is an extra special year for The Country Friends because it marks our 70th anniversary of giving back to the San Diego County community,” says TCF Board President Janean Stripe. The 2024 event also marks the nonprofit’s 20-year partnership with South Coast Plaza, the Costa Mesa shopping and dining destination. Centerpiece of the Art of Fashion is an outdoor runway show featuring selections from the fall-winter collections of the plaza’s renowned international designers and retailers. The event begins with a champagne reception and shopping at South Coast Plaza mini boutiques on The Inn’s lawns followed by the runway show, luncheon, live auction, and opportunity drawing. Founded in 1954, the nonprofit has provided $15 million to charitable organizations in San Diego County with an emphasis on those helping women, children, the elderly, families, the military, and persons with disabilities.
