Ballet Benefactors Prepare for Phenomenal Season

Phenomenal! That’s the theme for the 2014 San Francisco Ballet’s Opening Night Gala, but could also describe the Pacific Heights residence of Isha and Asim Abdullah, which was the location for a recent event honoring the Benefactors and Grand Benefactors of the Ballet.

Guests at the Abdullahs’ included ballet lovers such as Barbara Brown, Mary Beth Shimmon, Carolyn Chandler, Mario Diaz, Robin Collins, and Norman and Norah Stone, among others.

Cinderella Chic

In celebration of the U.S. premiere of Christopher Wheeldon’s Cinderella, SF Ballet hosted a fundraising dinner on May 3, 2013, in a gorgeous tented pavilion masterfully designed by Riccardo Benavides in the Memorial Court between the War Memorial Opera House and the Veterans Building.

Inspired by the theme of the evening, many dressed in the most fanciful fairy tale gowns, while others went for a more modern look. Everyone looked absolutely lovely (not a wicked stepmother in sight!)

Here, with photos courtesy of http://drewaltizer.com / Drew Altizer , we present our selection of the 25 most chic looks of the evening.
