Las Madrecitas’  annual fall fundraiser, on  October 22, was a 1950s style sock hop at the Zimmerman Automotive Museum in El Segundo. Proceeds benefited  the Luskin Orthopaedic Hospital of Los Angeles. Dr. Sophia Sangiorgio, a bioengineer, discussed the science behind  children’s prosthetics.  Auction donors included Sandi Barrett, who donated two vacation stays at her North Lake Tahoe chalet. Caterer Critics Choice prepared tray-passed hors d’oeuvres, a sit down dinner for 72 guests, and a bar featuring signature cocktails. The vegetarian meal consisted of  zucchini boats filled with quinoa, and vegetables. An herb-crusted chicken option with mashed potatoes and baby carrots was also offered. The dessert was old fashioned Carnation ice cream.
