Each year, Parca Auxiliary kicks off summer in the Bay Area with an al fresco lunch and fashion show that takes inspiration from a summer travel theme. Parca Palm Beach Club, the 29th annual event on the grounds of Krista and Aaron Giovara‘s beautiful estate in Hillsborough was no exception. Pops of pink, tropical prints and a runway covered in artificial grass set the scene. Parca Auxiliary Luncheon Co-chairs Meghan Crowell, Renee Fischer, and Francie Jain welcomed some 300 supporters for the highly anticipated, fashionable event that raises funds for Parca Organization.
After a light and delicious lunch from Billy Harris of St. Clair’s Catering, a select group of Parca Auxiliary members walked the runway in the latest spring and summer looks from Sam Malouf Authentic Luxury. As a finale, famed New York fashion designer Jason Wu took center stage and presented selections from his fall 2017 runway collection.
