American Red Cross Bay Area Chapter "Paint the Town Red" Gala

Ladies in red were the star of the annual SF fashion parade, otherwise known as the “Paint the Town Red” gala hosted by the American Red Cross Bay Area Chapter on Feb. 28 at City Hall. Co-chaired by gadabouts Roberta Economidis and Kelly Bryson Murphy, the sophisticated soiree, which raised $300,000, featured a live auction, three-course sit-down dinner (courtesy of McCall Associates), dessert buffets and dancing. Among the 450 guests, local fashion designers Cari Borja, Stephanie Verrieres and Kimie Sako turned out to support the cause, donating gowns they designed for the pre-dinner silent auction. The big-ticket item of the night? A dinner party catered by four of Bravo’s "Top Chef" contestants that raked in a cool $8,500.
