More than 300 men and women donned their finest red and white for The Arc of San Diego’s Winter Wonderland Fashion Show and Luncheon. Held at the US Grant Hotel, the event began with a robust silent auction. Guests enjoyed Champagne and cocktails while they shopped and placed their bids. During lunch, auctioneer Clint Bell entertained the audience with a live auction. Following that was a runway show produced by Leonard Simpson and Fashion Forward. Local designers and boutiques participated and, among the many models were two champion show dogs. All of the funds raised benefit the children and adults with disabilities who receive services from The Arc of San Diego. The Arc has 20 locations offering everything from early learning intervention to vocational training, residential services, and more.

The presenting sponsor was Dr. Howard & Barbara Milstein and the event chairs were Maria and Cici Stanley.
