Savvy Chic Fundraiser Supports Healthy Relationships
The Boone Center for the Family’s (BCFF) Savvy Chic fundraiser returned for a fifth year to celebrate fashion, fare, and friends in support of healthy relationships and strong families. On November 12, a large group of women, and some brave men, gathered at the Beverly Hills Hotel for a luncheon, silent auction, and fashion show to honor the 2008 Friends of the Family Award recipient, Helen M. Young. Helen’s life has intertwined with Pepperdine University for more than 65 years. As a graduate of the second graduating class of George Pepperdine College; wife of M. Norvel Young, the second president of Pepperdine University; and founding benefactor of BCFF, Helen has devoted and sacrificed much for her belief in Christian service and education.
“There is no greater need in our country or in our churches than that of having strong families,” commented Helen.
The Boone Center for the Family, a division of the Graduate School of Education and Psychology, is the recipient of proceeds from the event, which was produced by the Friends of the Family League, an auxiliary of the center.
