Thanking Cavalia for its spectacular mane event What a magical experience, this beautifully, breathtaking performance between humans and horses.

“Bras for a Cause Celebrate the Arts” — that was the 2011 theme for the go-to annual fundraiser of the spring. Presented by Soroptimist International of Glendale for the eighth year, artistically decorated bras spilled over every nook and cranny at the Oakmont Country Club on April 9. All were on full display on auction tables in the dining room and two extra rooms so that supporters could bid on them. The Soroptimist mandate was that bras could be decorated in any way, as long as they were innovative and imaginative.
