San Diego Museum of Art kicked off its annual Art Alive fundraiser with a VIP preview reception featuring gourmet food stations from local restaurants, speciality cocktails, made-to-order coffee drinks and live music. The main attraction, however, was the exhibition of floral creations paired with the museum artworks that inspired them.
Noushin Berjis and Benny Malek hosted a party for special guests at their home prior to the August issue of San Diego Home/Garden Lifestyles hitting newsstands. The remodeling of their home, led by Kim Grant and Paul Schatz, was featured in that issue and showcased on the magazine cover. Attendees enjoyed refreshments and ocean views at the La Jolla property while mingling with the homeowners and other guests.
