The Glow Gala made a world of difference raising $680,000 for underprivileged girls across the globe.
THE PARTY Guests lit up the night at The Resort at Pelican Hill during the Glow Gala to give more than 7,000 girls innovative opportunities to grow their futures via nonprofit Global G.L.O.W. THE SCENE Fusion hors d’oeuvres were passed, and Lugano Diamonds gleamed in a wine raffle to support GG’s HerStory Campaign during the sunset cocktail reception. Rosé flowed and powder-pink accents by Elite OC Productions illuminated the ballroom, where founder and CEO Kylie Schuyler took the stage with Executive Director Katie Rootlieb to welcome guests as they indulged in a VIP menu of braised Asian-style beef short ribs and ginger-glazed sea bass. THE HIGHLIGHTS Paddles flew up as a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Ghana, Africa, to meet the girls impacted by Global G.L.O.W.’s HerStory initiative was auctioned—a prize that contributed to the evening’s sparkling $680,000 total and assists girls in more than 25 countries. Bravo! -Riley Greenough
