Once again, the local chapter of the American Heart Association hosted a beautiful event for their annual Go Red Luncheon. Attendees were treated with posh shopping, informative speeches and seminars, a heart-healthy lunch, and a fashion show featuring survivors of heart diseases, all while donning their best red attire.
Four alumni from CSUB were honored as being this year’s inductees into the school’s Hall of Fame, which was established as a way to recognize former students who have made a “significant contribution in their chosen field or endeavor and/or in their community.” Supporters gathered at the Petroleum Club to toast Audrey Cochran, Dr. Lynne Hall, John Nilon, and Russell Judd with delicious dishes and drinks.
This gathering certainly put the “fun” in fundraiser! People from all over town came out to celebrate Fat Tuesday to help raise funds for Our Lady of Perpetual Help at their annual Mardi Gras celebration. A delectable Harris Ranch NY steak or barbecue chicken dinner was provided with the purchase of the tickets, as were snack foods, games, prizes, and a smashing good time.
The Southern California Camellia Society hosted its annual Camellia Show at the Bakersfield Racquet Club. Participants brought their most beautiful camellias arranged in creative, unique designs and put them before a panel of judges to see who truly had the top flower in town. After the judging, the general public was allowed to enjoy the entries.
The Buena Vista Museum was the place for CSUB Geo Club members to be for their 6th Annual BBQ. Those in attendance were able to dine while being surrounded by the Museum’s very interesting exhibits. Undoubtedly a fun way to spend an evening, participants were able to also take part in some delightful opportunity drawings while mingling amongst colleagues.
This year, the American Heart Association’s An Affair of the Heart event was hosted at Dr. Brij Bhambi’s home. Locals passionate about heart disease were present to share stories, support, and to partake in delicious wines and h’or devours. The evening was a lovely precursor to the Go Red Luncheon Fashion Show & Conference.
