It was nightclub scene right out of the 1960s — plenty of vintage cocktail dresses, carefully coifed hair (lots of hairspray!) and gentlemen sporting bow ties and fedoras. The seventh Sounds of Hope for Children concert, presented by Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary’s Carmel Valley Unit raised a whopping $660,000 to benefit the hospital’s Autism Discovery Institute. Held March 25 at the historic Prado Ballroom and featuring music by The Dean-O-Holics, a 17-member “Rat Pack” tribute band and two-time winner of the National Rising Star Award, the evening was a tribute to the glamour and ongoing popularity of a bygone era. Once again, the event was marked by the incredible generosity of nearly 300 invited guests, who gathered to support a remarkable institution.
