SavvyChic X

Celebrating a decade of SavvyChic, the annual benefit and fashion show for Pepperdine’s Boone Center for the Family, the 10th-anniversary event held special significance as the University honored the 60-year marriage of beloved benefactors Pat and Shirley Boone. With a nod to the styles, music, and icons that “dressed” the generations of Pat and Shirley, this year’s runway fashions showcased “Six Decades of Fashion… 60 Years of Boone Bliss.” SavvyChic is hosted each year by the Friends of the Family League, an auxiliary of the Boone Center whose mission is to enrich the work of the center by raising annual and endowment funds.
