Look To The Stars reporter B. Todi attended the bebe Luncheon and Fashion Show in Los Angeles on Wednesday, and witnessed firsthand the lineup of celebrities who gathered to make a girl’s wish come true.
Philanthropist and bebe stores owner Manny Mashouf, reality star Kristin Cavallari, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Greater Los Angeles came together again on Wednesday, March 5, to give a young person fighting to live something to live for.
The hostesses of the beautiful afternoon fundraiser were the charming ladies of the Beverly Hills Women’s Club. The wish-maker, Nyamabu, is a young woman battling sickle cell anemia who wants to be a gospel singer. And the wish granter is music producer Brent Woods, who joined Mashouf and the ladies for the afternoon.
Also at the luncheon and bebe fashion show – held at the intimate 1925 Spanish Colonial Clubhouse – were Melora Hardin (The Office_), Brenda Strong (Desperate Housewives_), Maud Adams (Octopussy), and Debra Christofferson (Carnivale).
Mashouf, bebe, Cavallari, and MAWLA initially joined forces as fundraisers to kick-off fashion week in LA last October. Mashouf, in addition to being a MAWLA ambassador board member, has with his wife Neda made major gifts to the College of Creative Arts at their alma mater San Francisco State University and to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
Since 1916 the Beverly Hills Women’s Club has engaged in philanthropic endeavors to strengthen the community with the support of early Hollywood stars such as Gloria Swanson, Will Rogers, Norma Shearer, and Joan Crawford.
