Things got festive at the Getty residence for Glogau Teddy Bear Rescue Fund’s Snuggly Soiree. The spirited, colorful party channeled a scene out of candy land, raising over $250,000 for families in-need at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital. There was something for everyone on the age-diverse, 300-person guest list — from mini hamburgers to gourmet hors d’oeuvres and candy to cocktails. A few boldface names in the crowd? Naturally, the fund’s founders Richard Glogau and Pam Glogau; UCSF Chancellor Sam Hawgood; Health CEO Mark Laret and Benioff Children’s SF VP Kim Scurr. Former NFL star Lorenzo Neal was the event’s VIP guest. A highlight for adult guests was the silent auction, where bidders nabbed tickets a sold-out Paul McCartney concert and exclusive stay at the Squaw Valley Inn.
