La Dolce Vita This is how it all started. I was sitting at Vincent’s lunching with the high priestesses of real estate Sandy Baldwin and Ellie Shapiro catching up. Moments later Chef Vincent himself arrived showcasing an enormous New England lobster. Evidently the near 70 year old crustacean was to be feasted upon at the much anticipated Big Game Big Give Super Bowl party just days away. It was quite a site! The next night we were back at Vincent’s again in the bleu room sipping cocktails with renowned party planner George Abrams and the exceptionally attractive realtor Libby Cohen and her equally successful husband Joel. The lobster arrived again. Everyone gasped! But a logistics meeting earlier had sealed the fate of the lobster now aptly named Freedom. The people involved in Big Game, Big Give intercepted and Freedom instead of becoming some of Vincent’s prized lobster bisque or ravioli, now resides peacefully swimming around in the Boston Aquarium. I would have happily steamed him! There’s the Great Gatsby and then there’s Big Game Big Give, the Valley’s answer to the Great Gatsby. If you were fortunate enough to attend this party the night before the Super Bowl, you know what I’m talking about. Philanthropists Linda and Bill Pope joined forces with sports-world icons Matt and Erika Williams to throw the most OTT (yes, that’s over-the-top) party this town has ever seen. Everywhere you looked you saw athletes, celebrities and beautiful people. A few of the high-

By Bill Dougherty lights included Mark Wahlberg moonlighting as an auctioneer, Michael Bay on stage egging him on, Jordin Sparks regaling the crowd with her stunning voice, fireworks exploding overhead and incredible cuisine and spirits throughout the sprawling party. By the way who is Juliette Barkdull and where has she been hiding? Where were all of the Valley’s elite hanging out? Carrie Schnepf’s “Route 66,” which featured grilled cheese sandwiches, burgers, fries, tomato soup and Carrie’s homemade peach pie. It was there that I caught up with Michelle Robson, who stole the show in shades of shimmering gold. The Popes, Williams and their host committee must be thrilled since “Arizona Shines” broke all previous Super Bowl fundraising records by raising $1.1 million for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Phoenix, Mark Wahlberg Foundation and The Giving Back Fund. Florist to the stars Dennis Thompson of Whitehouse Design Studio must have been pleased with the magnificent room he created for the 50th anniversary of the Barrow Ball. It was perhaps the most stunning less is more themed events I’ve attended in my 21 years of doing such things.

La Dolce Vita – Continued from page 9 Biltmore. Stunning chairs Carole Moreno and Sarah Suggs made sure that every nuance from passed hors d’ oeuvres during cocktails to the perfect menu (nothing stupid or trendy) to sherry and cheese boards served after desert. Yes, it was that good! I was blown away and I’m very jaded after 21 years. There were a lot of lovelies in the ball room who have chaired or are about to chair upcoming events. All I can say ladies is I hope you took notes? Carole and Sarah’s effortless and golden touch made this one of the most coveted invitations of the season! And coveted it is, since fewer than 400 people receive them. You get the picture? On a February night we found ourselves in the posh new classic showroom of Addison and Walt Brown. The Browns threw open the doors to the 5 Arts Circle and a great group of the social swim. It turns out that lovely Addison who could have easily been a super model is the brains behind Brown’s Classic Autos. The company takes any type of classic auto and reengineers them to 2015 road technology. What an amazing concept. We ended the evening fireside at El Chorro with the dark, attractive and mysterious Sue Fletcher. It was the perfect place to end a perfect winter’s evening. The other night at the Phoenician the Scottsdale Honor Ball, 2nd of the big 3 balls for the season was held. Tawny Ruth Lavinia and Christine Watson (the fabulous British export), brought together some of the most impressive people you all know and adore for a more than Impressive affair. I ran into Dennis Thompson yet again. Apparently he was doing double duty as Fresh Start (another smashing event) was being held at the Biltmore. Looks like everyone threw their respective calendars away again this season. Anyway, the ball

was magnificent. All elements of splendor and surprise made for the perfect night. And that must have made the elegant Laura Grafman very pleased. By the way, who was Jill Kristen’s out of town mystery date? A few days ago I saw a fetching photo of the beautiful and b ­ eautifully dressed Eileen Yeung. The photo taken outside of New York’s Lincoln Center made me very sad. Eileen looked amazing, but what made me so sad was our loss. Remember when Symphony Hall bore a striking resemblance to Lincoln Center. What the hell happened! Now there’s a massive concrete building in front of it! Why do we sit back and do nothing? Did they ever find all the Native American art that went missing in terminal 3 after the airport was remodeled? The Coliseum (a masterpiece of mid-century architecture) sits almost abandoned and ignored. The Borgata has been torn down. Apartments now occupy the corner of Scottsdale Road and Lincoln Drive. This is perhaps the most affluent corner of the city. The Phoenix Open, once the Augusta Masters of the Southwest at the Phoenix Country Club, now a free-for-all in north Scottsdale. In Cocktail Polo News You Should Know: That Bill Shover just married Kay Loftin. That a gossiping socialite has been cut off at the knees by her friends. That the veneer is quickly wearing off someone who tried so hard to keep herself varnished. That a philanthropist quietly let In Cocktail Polo News you should know: termailly ill children take a ride on their jet. That the social community has tired of a beady-eyed troublemaker, who tries to push her way into the crowd. That a snarky socialite seems a bit humbled now that she is financially at a loss. Now you’re all caught up for the next 15 minutes.

CHARITY SPOTLIGHT

Barrow Ball On January 17, 2015, The Women’s Board of Barrow Neurological Institute celebrated its Golden Anniversary with a champagne toast and the announcement that the group has successfully raised $50 million in 50 years to support medical research, education and clinical care at Barrow Neurological Institute. The announcement was made during the 2015 Barrow Grand Ball, hosted at the Arizona Biltmore. The Women’s Board was formed in 1965 to raise funds for research at Barrow Neurological Institute which was dedicated in 1962. The first event, a New Year’s Eve Ball at Casa Blanca Inn in Paradise Valley, netted $26,000. “Without the Women’s Board, Barrow Neurological Institute would not exist as it does today,” said Director Robert Spetzler, MD. “They

Historic Invitation

have been a source of support both monetarily and spiritually. They’ve really been pivotal to Barrow’s success.” Throughout the last half-century, donations from the annual ball have supported medical research for the treatment of brain tumors, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, ALS, Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, degenerative disc disease, traumatic brain injury and cerebral vascular disease. Funds have enabled more than 150 world-renowned neuroscience professors to participate in a visiting professor program at Barrow. In addition, numerous neuroscience nurses and residents have benefited from the educational opportunities. The Barrow Grand Ball has also supported new and emerging centers of excellence at Barrow, such as the Barrow Brain Tumor Research Center and the Barrow Center for Neuromodulation.

Funds raised by the Women’s Board have supported patient care, education and research at Barrow, including the development of the Barrow Brain Tumor Research Center, which is focused on finding better treatments for brain tumors and, ultimately, a cure.

This year board chairman Nancy Walker, ball co-chairs Carole Moreno and Sarah Suggs were instrumental in netting $2.8 million. These funds will fuel the continued growth of Barrow. “Truly, this Golden Anniversary marks a joyous milestone on the Barrow timeline and reminds us how fortunate we are to be blessed by the dedication of these distinguished women,“ according to Dr. Spetzler.

The Women’s Board was instrumental in creating the Harber Foundation Chair of Neurological Surgery, which helped recruit Robert Spetzler, MD, to join the team at Barrow Neurological Institute. Dr. Spetzler became director of the institute in 1986.

CHARITY SPOTLIGHT

PANDA

The PANDA’s are a group of 70 Active members that make up the Phoenix Women’s Board of the Steele Children’s Research Center at the University of Arizona. Sixteen years ago, our founding members Robyn DeBell and Penny Gunning assembled a group of women who believe that discovering answers to these childhood diseases comes from taking action, leading them to adopt the name PANDA, which is an acronym that stands for People Acting Now Discover Answers.

44

TRENDS MAGAZINE

What has PANDA accomplished so far? PANDA has raised more than $5.25 million to improve treatments and cures for devastating childhood diseases, as well as to fund and recruit internationally recognized pediatric physicians and scientists to Arizona, providing local families with the most cutting-edge medical care. Last year, we opened an office in the Arcadia neighborhood of Phoenix where local families can participate in our more advanced-stage studies and receive care without the inconvenience of traveling to Tucson. Tell us more about the Steele Children’s Research Center? The Steele Center is the only center in Arizona where physician-scientists care for children and conduct “bench to bedside” research in pediatric diseases. At any given time, there are approximately 100 research projects in progress.

Who are this team of doctors and researchers at the Steele Children’s Research Center? You mean our secret weapon! These brilliant doctors and researchers are the reason for Steele’s countless successes. Recruited from around the globe, they are led fervently by our director, Dr. Fayez Ghishan. Dr. Ghishan’s prestigious awards and his ability to relate to children makes him a superhero to our young patients and their families. He is our “Man of Steele.” Tell us about your event this year? Our 16th annual PANDA Children’s Fashion Show and Luncheon will be held at The Phoenician on Saturday, April 25th, 2015 at 11 a.m. This year’s event will support the PANDA Children’s Anti-Tumor Immunity Program and endowment. The goal of this program is to prevent cancer from relapsing in children. It will be a glittering event and a year of record breaking successes!

Vibrant hues flowing and well-tailored clothes as well. Dreamy patterns that flow and contrast.

ART

Focus on the Heard Museum Colin Coonsis, Zuni Pueblo born in 1981, has created bracelets that prove to be more challenging than the usual earrings and pendants. The flow of water design signifies an inspired period of ‘going with the flow’ rather than making jewelry according to a buyer or collector’s requests. He watched his parents rely on ‘orders’ passed from the local trading post as the way to make a living. An early yearning persuaded him to make jewelry according to his own design without the llmits of satisfying purchasers. His creations are of silver, turquoise, mother-of-pearl and shell.

Gift of the Heard Museum Council and Bequest of William F. and Virginia C. Waterman, 4711-1 and 4666-90 and Heard Museum purchase

The featured turquoise bracelet is called ‘Water Series.’ The mother-of-pearl cuff was a stepping stone in which his jewelry became much more detailed. The inlay becomes smaller as his passion to create evolves. This cuff is in his ‘Pixels’ style of inlay. For Colin it represents an extension of life’s journey as an artist. Each tiny stone demonstrates the vastness of design and inspiration for him. He states that he is never satisfied with his work and is always striving to do better.

TRENDY READING

“The Wiser Divorce” by Angie Hallier Review by Bill Dougherty For decades divorce in the United States has been viewed with a very negative connotation. The mere mention of the word brings up images of sad country western hits, unpleasant subjects, broken homes and much more. Whether anyone wants to admit it or not, divorce has become a part of everyday life. However, if you look closely at the subject in print titles, read with almost always negative impressions such as Surviving Divorce or How To Win at Divorce and on and on. Enter Angie Hallier. The brilliant and beautiful lawyer, who for the last 2 decades has been named one of the top 5 family attorneys in Arizona. Instead of taking the road to negativity, Ms. Hallier chose a splendid and uplifting approach to ending a marriage. The book looks into various topics including: speaking to your children, finding the right attorney and keeping the court system from controlling too much of your future. Every aspect of this book is positive and an opportunity for growth, rather than the constant pitfalls associated with the subject. An excellent read. “The Wiser Divorce” focuses on the tools and strategies to end a marriage with respect, dignity and a final goal of making your new life the very best it can be. Everyone who is about to divorce or already has done so, needs to read this guide. It’s that well written and often extremely enjoyable.

FOCUS ON SMoCA

Radiate, Latex Paint on Wall-2014 Working with restricted formal elements – a limited palette of yellows, oranges, fuchsias and deep purple as well as a composition of calculated, repeating forms – artist James Marshall generates a visual pulse in SMoCA Lounge. His energetic painting takes its chromatic cue from the intense heat and light of Arizona and the sharp geometric radiation of that light through the rectangular clerestory window in the northeast corner of the Lounge. While designing Radiate, Marshall was cocommissioned by SMoCA and Scottsdale Public Art to create a mural that extends from the exterior Nancy and Art Schwalm Sculpture Courtyard through the Museum’s lobby and retail spaces inside the building. Titled Shift, this vibrant installation further energizes the Museum with Marshall’s bold, graphic style.

Photo courtesy of Sean Deckert/Calnicean Projects

Marshall works in multiple artistic spheres. In museums and galleries, his paintings reflect formal training at the Art Institute of Chicago and time as a studio assistant to renowned Japanese artist Takashi Murakami. In the streets of major cities, he’s recognized for mural projects blending pop, punk and the cartoonish character Space Monkey. In the studios

of the surf, skate and music gear company Hurley, he collaborates with product designers and retail experts. This ability to merge the languages of different visual cultures made Marshall the ideal artist to galvanize multiple spaces in the museum. SMoCA is located at 7374 E. Second St. 480.874.4666 or www.smoca.org.

Quiet and mild tempered, Annie tends to find a spot and call it her own – usually that’s on your lap. The Exotic shorthair not only has a stunning fur coat with charcoal colored stripes on her jet black fur but she’s extremely affectionate as well. The laidback 3-year-old dreams of a day where she can bask in someone’s windowsill and her favorite pastimes include bird watching and lounging on the couch beside you while you read a book. She likes sleeping in open dresser drawers during the day and will curl up at the foot of your bed at night. Meet Annie at the Arizona Humane Society’s Petique Retail and Adoption Center located at the Biltmore Fashion Park. For more information call 602.957.3113 and ask for animal ID number A504437 or visit azhumane.org.

Evie

Evie is irresistibly cute with her scruffy appear­ ance and clumsy antics. The 4-month-old puppy was rescued from a bad situation by Emergency Animal Medical Technicians and was brought to the Arizona Humane Society where she’s currently in the market for a new home. Like a whirlwind, one minute Evie will be snuggled on your lap and the next minute she’s wildly shaking her stuffed piggy toy and strutting around the house like a hot shot. This action-packed Schnauzer mix has an upbeat and spunky personality and whether she’s playing a brisk game of fetch or performing simple tricks, she likes to be kept busy. This fun-loving pup is waiting to be adopted at the Campus for Compassion located at 1521 W. Dobbins Road in Phoenix. For more information call 602.997.7585 and ask for animal ID number A504113. To visit additional animals, visit www.azhumane.org.
