After a Laurent Perrier champagne reception, the crowd that included Pasquale Bruni legacy Daniele Bruni,Roman jeweler Alberto Petochi, Europa Corp’s Candice McDonough and Haute Living’s Los Angeles Editor-in-Chief Laura Schreffler, sat down for a dinner of pork chops and salmon as well as Mastro’s signature warm butter cake.
Petochi then stood to say a few words about the philanthropic and altruistic Saban, before revealing that Pasquale Bruni would be donating a pair of 18k gold and diamond heart earrings (which sell for roughly $20,000) to Cheryl to auction off at an upcoming fundraiser; the money raised will be donated to one of her charities. Saban stood as well to say how honored she was to have been featured in the issue.
