Boutique opening doubles as benefit
Tory Burch Opening: The opening of Tory Burch’s San Francisco boutique last Wednesday doubled as a philanthropic event, with 10 percent of proceeds being donated to California Pacific Medical Center’s “Wishes for Wellness.”
Attendees included Tory Burch, Marissa Mayer and Zack Bogue, Sloan Barnett, Carol and Shelby Bonnie, Sharmin Bock and O.J. Shansby.
Shady art up for auction
Gump’s ‘Made in the Shade’: Gump’s, the eclectic design store in Union Square, handed basic lamp shades to an array of artists, designers and celebrities and asked them to create one-of-a-kind works to be auctioned off on behalf of the California College of Arts.
Guests were treated to food and drinks during the silent auction, followed by the fashion show and live auction where models strutted down the runway with the featured lampshades on their heads.
