South Coast Plaza’s Jewel Court was filled with hundreds of supporters of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County and the Inland Empire on Wednesday, Oct. 5 when volunteer auxiliary group Angelitos de Oro kicked off its 15th annual Angelitos Card Week with a preview reception and luncheon.
More than 250 cardholders attended the event, which included champagne and a fashion presentation led by South Coast Plaza Executive Director of Marketing Debra Gunn Downing that included styles from Bottega Veneta, Burberry, Coach, Escada, Intermix, Oscar de la Renta, REDValentino and St. John.
Preview Day stores donated 10 percent of proceeds from all sales on Oct. 5 to Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Angelitos Cards, which were sold through Oct. 12, provided cardholders access to 20 percent savings at more than 100 participating South Coast Plaza boutiques and restaurants. All proceeds from card sales are donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters for its youth mentoring programs.
To-date, the Angelitos de Oro auxiliary, which includes a large number of
Newport Beach philanthropists, has contributed nearly $6 million to Big Brothers Big Sisters.
