The all-outdoor event includes a champagne reception, luncheon on The Inn’s lawn, boutique shopping, an opportunity drawing, and live auction of designer handbags, jewelry, clothing, getaways, and more. This year’s honorary chairs are Deborah and Les Cross, recognized for their long commitment to The Country Friends. Deborah also co-chairs the event with TCF President Suzanne M. Newman and Director of Operations Yvette Letourneau. Award-winning ABC 10News Anchor Kimberly Hunt will emcee. Event proceeds will benefit The Country Friends’ chosen charities, with emphasis on those serving women, children, the elderly, the military, and the disabled. Here, in the serene Rancho Santa Fe garden of TCF board member Tamara Lafarga-Joseph and her husband, Roger Joseph, we highlight looks from a selection of this year’s participating designers: Camilla, Lanvin, Max Mara, Monique Lhuillier, and Oscar de la Renta, with jewelry by John Matty Co.
