The 3rd annual Miracle Babies Breakfast at Tiffany’s Lunch 2016 recognized The Miracle Circle’s work in support of Miracle Babies on February 24, 2016. The gorgeous daytime event netted $100,000 and was held at La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla Village. Guests were greeted with mimosas on the mezzanine as they walked and posed for photographs on the step and repeat. In attendance were 180 Audrey Hepburn-esque partygoers carrying Chanel, Bulgari, Edie Parker, Gucci, and more. Most guests rose early to get their Holly Golightly up-dos done and showed up wearing the iconic black dress and black gloves with overly adorned pearls and Chanel jewels.
The Miracle Babies Breakfast at Tiffany’s Lunch 2016 was sponsored by StemCyte, the leading cord blood banking company and longtime partner of Miracle Babies. Scroll down for party photo highlights and a link to Facebook full photo gallery. (Tag your photos of you and your friends!)
James Montejano, former La Valencia Executive Chef, prepared the most decadent brunch ending with a Tiffany’s inspired key lime bar. Each guest received a clear box with a Tiffany cupcake inside made by Fancy A Treat.
