Starfish Awards at The Setai

Benefiting Jackson Cancer Care

Jackson Cancer Care, an auxiliary group of Jackson Memorial Foundation, held the 2nd Annual Social Affairs Starfish Awards at The Setai. With a slight nip in the air, guests mingled in the chic outdoor lounge area while enjoying Oronoco Rum Mojito’s (garnished with starfish, of course).


Mistress of ceremonies, Laurie Jennings, was dressed in a stunning Angel Sanchez gown and presented Tiffany & Co. gifts to this year’s Starfish Award Recipients: Trish Bell, Marla Bergmann, Brenda Nestor Castellano, Sherry Fardie, Bill Jones, Mariana Martinez, Roe Stamps, Lydia Prio Touzet and Ana Moran Varela.

After the award ceremony, Neiman Marcus put on a fashion show that featured the Angel Sanchez Resort & Spring 2009 Collection that ended with a special appearance by the designer himself, Angel Sanchez. Also on hand were the The Jackson Cancer Care Board of Directors: host of the evening Norma A. Quintero (President), Nancy Batchelor (Vice President), Ana Moran Varela, Nancy Cole, Katharine Rubino and Diane de Olazarra.
