4th Annual Face Forward Gala hosted by Sara Rue with headling performance by Macy Gray and special performance by Stacey Francis honoring Dr. Phil & Robin McGraw and Jake Kloberdanz held at Fairmont Miramar Hotel 101 Wilshire Blvd., Santa Monica, CA on September 28, 2013. The event was put on by the PEAK PR GROUP
A victim told her heartbrreaking story of how she was beaten and left in the street to die, her face so badly disfigured she was barely recognizable. Face Foward brings awareness and gives hope to these victims informing them of corrective surgery and introducing them to some of the best doctors in the country.
This Gatsby Gala Affair was done in traditional Gatsby style as if Gatsby himself was attending and looking on from his private window. All attendees were dressed to the theme and live entertainment included roaring 1920's dancers and live painters. It was as if you walked through the doors and went back in time to the 1920' era.
A full hosted bar included some of the best champagne I have ever tasted and a variety of delicious appetizers. Inside the setting of beautiful chandeliers and subtle lighting was again a fit for the theme. A full course dinner menu was served, salad with bourbon syrup, roasted bosc pears frisee, endive and lolla rossa point reyes cheese, champagne vinaigrette, the entre, brioche crusted chicken root vegetable puree', brussel spriut, salsify and pearl onion ragout chicken jus or butternut squash raviolli, roasted apples, kabocha squash, sage and dessert pink lady apple, and pear crumble vanilla bean ice cream, while Stacy Francis, highly acclaimed singer, actress and X-Factor finalist, sang with her amazing voice. The headliner of the evening was Macy Gray. There was a live silent auction with traditional place cards.
