More than 170 guests were in the pink when the Breast Cancer Resource Center hosted its 15th annual THRIVE fashion show at the Montecito Club, raising $100,000.

The event was originally scheduled for the club’s expansive lawn, but the unusually chilly weather forced a last-minute change to indoors where the fires were roaring.

Ubiquitous DJ Darla Bea emceed the event with breast cancer survivors Debbie Barnett, Sara Browne, Shawn Dyer, Susan Ferguson, Kathy Patton and Beatrice Valenzuela modeling fashions from J. McLaughlin.

Executive director Silvana Kelly welcomed supporters including Nora Scheinberg, Marietta Jablonka, Melinda Rogers, Suzanne dePonce, Heather Maher, Mary Montalvo, and Heather Suh.
