Barefoot Winery, represented by Peter Extremo, donated the wine: two reds, two whites and champagne flavored with pomegranate juice.
Hors' d'oeuvres and dinner were catered by Las Brisas.
Guitarist Sammy Joe entertained.
The guest list included Rick Silver, a collector of early California modernists.
"I have been collecting all my life," Silver said. "I have one of the largest Roger Koontz collections in California—he died way too soon."
Also on the guest list: Mary and Matt Lawson, Chamber of Commerce board member Michael Kinsman, past museum treasurer Kathy Conway, Ferguson daughter-in-law Lauren, and museum member Karen Klammer, whose two guests bought works in the show.
Clinic Garden Party
The Laguna Beach Community Clinic collected enough money at a fundraiser held Oct. 14 at Madison Square Café and Garden to buy a badly needed special refrigerator.
"This event reached its goal of generating $10,000 to purchase a thermo-scientific refrigerator needed to store medicines critical to fostering community, including flu shots for the elderly, treatments for diabetics and vaccines for school children," Dr. Pamela Lawrence, clinic board president, stated in a news release.
The fundraiser was fully underwritten, which allowed all the donations to go toward the purchase.
Underwriters included Lawrence, Ginny and Rick Linting, Andy Horowitz, John Link and Claudia Crawford, Roya Cole and Jon Madison, owner of the café in a lovingly restored bungalow and a member of the city's Heritage Committee.
Ginny Linting chaired the event.
Admission was $20 per person. The rest of the money was raised through generous participation in an opportunity drawing for a stay for four at the Linting family's Tuscan hamlet and a $1,000 donation from the Laguna Beach Soroptimist Club.
Lisa Wolter of Laguna Beach Soroptimist Club presented Lawrence with the check in recognition of the clinic's efforts to keep the women and girls of our community healthy.
Dr. Tom Bent, the clinic's medical director and chief operating office thanked the supporters and toasted them for their role in helping to provide excellent medical care for all individuals in Orange County, regardless of the ability to pay.
