A sellout crowd of approximately 460 filled one of the large meeting rooms at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel April 21 for the 33rd annual Gentlemen’s Haberdashery, which raised more than $200,000 for the Heart of Jesus Retreat Center in Santa Ana.
The event, which is one of the largest charitable fundraisers in Orange County, features more than 40 of the county’s top professional, community and education leaders modeling a wide variety of menswear. The haberdashery was hosted by Rancho Mission Viejo family members Frandy and Jeremy Laster and Trina and Marc Lamkin, along with Melanie Salata-Fitch. The fashions were provided by At-Ease, Burns 1876, Garys, J. Hilburn and St. Croix.
Among the perennial favorite models were (left to right) Mater Dei High School President Patrick Murphy, Diocese of Orange Vicar General Father Steve Sallot, and Mater Dei High School Head Football Coach Bruce Rollinson.
