Flowers, fountains and a panoramic view of Orange County provided the backdrop for the elegant annual Founders Gala on Sunday. The sweltering heat couldn't quell the enthusiasm of the 107 guests who gathered for a late-afternoon soiree at Casa La Cuesta, the hilltop home of hosts and arts benefactors Pat and William Podlich of Lemon Heights. The event was sponsored by Founders Plus, an organization made up of the original visionaries of the Orange County Performing Arts Center in Costa Mesa.

Pacific Symphony Music Director Carl St.Clair was having none of it as he celebrated the launch of the orchestra's 25th-anniversary season at a gala staged next to the site of its future home, the Renee and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall.

Hundreds of music lovers gathered for the Symphonic Dance of Diamonds, an annual black-tie gala benefit on Saturday that netted more than $200,000--a record--for the Pacific Symphony. Living up to the theme, sparklers glittered everywhere--from the ears of the elegantly attired guests and the swan-like necks of models provided by Tiffany & Co. And what a backdrop. The ballroom stage of the Hyatt Regency Irvine was framed in black velvet, like a gift box for a diamond necklace.
