Last night’s CSF Gala and Auction, “A Day at the Races,” goes down on the books as one of the most festive events of the year. Not only did we raise money for Coronado Schools Foundation, but we laughed, played, feasted, and danced our hearts out in true small-town, dream-big fashion. (They don’t call it the “Mom’s Prom” for nothing. The fascinators flew high and the dance moves went way down low.)
The highlights? Drinks at a lovely pinky-orange sunset on the newly-remodeled Vista Walk at the Hotel Del, bright, candy-colored hats and fascinators, soul-wrenching rendition of “Shallows”’sung by Matt Heniecke and friends, a horse-head ice luge, hysterical hermit crab racing, a super awesome band, some pretty radical dancing by the guests, and mega-watt smiles from ear to ear.
Here are some of the pics.
