Sylvia Pullen’s Girls Fly! had good a day at Santa Anita Race Park raising funds, watching the horses race and honoring upstanding citizens in our community. Army Chaplin and reality TV star Omarosa Manigault got things started by giving the invocation.
Honorees included Congresswoman Judy Chu, Jerome Horton Chairman of the California State Board of Equalization, Chantel Sutherland-Kruse, one of Thoroughbred Racing’s biggest stars, and Sir Keith Holman, fashion designer to the stars.
In the Chandelier room, the works of Keith Holman were displayed. The display included memorabilia that were created for Michael Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor, and the Supremes. There was also a silent auction.
