Carnivale Classique

| August 24, 2011 | Parties

It seemed only fitting for the Foundation for the Great Park to dub this year’s gala Carnivale—because it was, indeed, a time to play and celebrate the transformation of the former El Toro Marine Air Base into a destination for recreation and education. The 300 guests took spins on the carousel, sipped cocktails, dined on a Brazilian-themed meal amid the date palms of the new arts complex and took a chance at winning silent and live auction items. (Rare wines, golf outings, an aviation buff’s dream package and a diamond necklace from Tiffany & Co. were among the grand prizes.) Photos by Ann Chatillon
