CHOC Guild’s 25th anniversary “A Night in Havana” gala


The Glass Slipper Guild, dedicated to supporting the efforts of CHOC Children’s, will host a festive evening in honor of the Guild’s 25th anniversary with “A Night in Havana” gala, on Saturday, May 4th at the Balboa Bay Resort in Newport Beach.

The Glass Slipper Guild will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Guild reflecting on past accomplishments and looking ahead to their newest 2 million-dollar pledge to the groundbreaking Fetal Program at CHOC.

The formal event will begin at 5 p.m. with an unforgettable cocktail and silent auction reception. Greeted by the lively tunes of Cuban music and the signature mojito cocktail, guests will experience the old-world glamour of Havana, while enjoying hors d’ oeuvres, cocktails and custom rolled cigars in the open-air courtyard at Balboa Bay Resort.  At 7 p.m., guests will then be swept away in the ballroom, reminiscent of an era past, for dinner, a live auction and a special presentation featuring life-saving doctors of the fetal program and grateful parents of CHOC patients.

The evening concludes with a casino-themed after party where guests can mingle, dance and enjoy a special guest performance by revolutionary percussion performer Ravi Jakhotia (a.k.a Ravi Drums).

Funds raised from the 2019 Gala will help the Glass Slipper Guild fund a $2 million-dollar pledge toward an innovative and comprehensive Fetal Program in Orange County. Physicians at CHOC Children’s and UCI Health, in addition to their valued partner St. Joseph Hospital are working together to elevate maternal and fetal care in our community. They will provide mothers and babies confronting serious birth defects with the best possible care from pregnancy to the newborn period and beyond.

For tickets and more information

Balboa Bay Resort is at 1221 West Coast Highway in Newport Beach.

Miracles for Kids, an Orange County-based nonprofit organization benefiting critically-ill children and their families in need by providing financial and emotional support, has partnered with Perricone Juices and Angels Baseball for the 2nd Annual Home Runs for Kids Program. Through this exciting program, Perricone Juices will be donating $250 to Miracles for Kids for EVERY home run the Angels hit this season!

Last year’s Home Runs for Kids Program resulted in a total of $50,000 donated by Perricone Juices which directly benefitted Miracles for Kids and their patient families. Perricone Juices has remained a longtime supporter and advocate of the organization.

Joe Perricone, Chairman of Perricone Juices, was named the Miracle Maker Honoree at the 2018 Night of Miracles Gala. The Southern California-based company is also headed by Bob Rovzar, CEO & Partner, who serves on the Board of Directors of Miracles for Kids. The company is a major contributor serving as a lead sponsor for Miracles for Kids’ 2019 Golf Invitational and playing a large role in the creation of Miracle Manor, Miracles for Kids’ multi-unit apartment community that provides subsidized housing to the families they serve.

The Los Angeles Angels are having a strong season thus far. They have made a total of 14 home runs to date – which is great news for not only the team and its fans, but also for Miracles for Kids and the families they serve.

 The final day of the 2019 regular season is on Sunday, September 29. At that time, based on the final count of home runs by the Angels, Perricone Juices will present Miracles for Kids with a check to benefit the families supported by the organization.
