Santa Barbara uber realtor Adam McKaig, founder of the homeless charity Adam’s Angels, marked the 11th anniversary of his half century in style at the Carriage & Western Museum when more than 100 guests turned out to help him celebrate. The La Boheme dance company production, under director Teresa Kuskey Nowak, was co-hosted by Adam’s fiancée Melissa Borders, man about town Rick Oshay, and Crystal Iverson.

Entertainment was in abundance with guitar and trumpet duo Brandon Kinalele and Miles Burnham, award-winning singer Jackson Gillies, and DJ Joseph Souza, as guests noshed on Mexican fare from Keep Your Fork catering and quaffed myriad tequila concoctions. Zoom messages also came from former Million Dollar Listing star Fredrik Eklund, and singers Flavor Flav and Chynna Phillips.

Others joining in the boffo bash, which helped raise $28,000 for Adam’s Angels, included fun-loving Franciscan friar Larry Gosselin, Sean Landon (son of the late Bonanza actor Michael Landon), ubiquitous KEYT reporter John Palminteri, brother Chris McKaig, emcee Drew Wakefield, David Bolton, Mike Stoker, Fred Brander, Michael Edwards, Rebecca Brand, Donna Reeves, and Katy Perry’s parents, Keith and Mary Hudson.
