Rancho Santa Fe residents featured in photo exhibit to benefit local senior centers


Famed local photographer Philipp Scholz Rittermann will unveil a new exhibit benefitting Senior Community Centers, on Thursday, Oct. 11, from 6-9 p.m., at the Port Pavilion on Broadway Pier in downtown San Diego.

The exhibit, “Notes to Our Sons and Daughters,” features stylized, black and white photos of notable North County seniors, sharing their words of wisdom, including: Joaquin Anguera, Susan Lew and Mary Bebe (Rancho Santa Fe); Christine Forester, Duane Roth, Erika Torri, Mary Walshok and Mr. and Mrs. Gary and Mary West (La Jolla); Pat Hyndman (Carmel Valley) and others such as actress Marion Ross and County Supervisor Ron Roberts.

The photographs, which highlight well-known San Diego artists, entrepreneurs, philanthropists, academics and community leaders, will each be accompanied by a “note” from the subject revealing lessons learned along life’s journey.

Guests will mingle with the subjects of the photographs, while sipping wine and sampling cuisine under the stars along San Diego Bay. The honorary event chair is Darlene M. Shiley and the mistress of ceremonies is actress Marion Ross. Individual tickets are $150 for general admission and $250 for VIP.

Senior Community Centers is a nonprofit agency dedicated to keeping San Diego seniors healthy and independent. Founded in 1970, the organization creates collaborative partnerships to support their “wellness model,” which provides nutrition, health, mental health, advocacy, transitional housing for homeless seniors and permanent supportive housing.
