The Gold Standard

| March 23, 2015 | Parties

The Party
Olympic gold medalist and cancer survivor Scott Hamilton served as master of ceremonies, and award-winning songstress Audra McDonald wowed from the stage. Honorees included Melani Walton, Yank and Yvette Barry, Dr. Steven Ungerleider, David Ulich, Jinger Richardson, Missy Anderson and Bob Bondurant. Patricia Boone, who lived at Childhelp Village, shared her own story of surviving abuse and her path toward becoming a child advocate attorney.

The People
Notable guests included more than a dozen Olympians; Dancing With the Stars celebs Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd; former Gov. Jan Brewer, Gov. Doug Ducey, and former Sen. Jon Kyl. Childhelp founders Sara O’Meara and Yvonne Fedderson, event chairs Bob and Pat Bondurant, and co-chairs Jim and Carol Hebets were also in attendance, as well as Bill and Linda Pope, Foster Friess, Jimmy Walker, Sue Glawe, Craig Jackson and Carolyn Mullany-Jackson, and Bob Machiz.

The Scene
With the help of an over-the-top live auction and 550 generous attendees, the event raised more than $1 million for prevention and treatment of child abuse—a sparkling evening by all standards. –Photos courtesy of Childhelp
