(More about that later.) Come Sept. 14, Orange County will see another when the past presidents of South Coast Repertory chair the gala that launches the local social season. An 11-member powerhouse at the helm of one blast? Unheard of. Getting one heavy hitter to chair a fund-raising gala is hard enough.
