Rancho Santa Fe Insurance celebrates expansion

Globe Gala glitters with generosity

By Margo Schwab

First, Rancho Santa Fe Insurance hosted a celebration of its recent expansion with a cocktail party. And it was a who’s who of the Ranch and San Diego.
Past the multitude of Ferrari’s and fancy cars parked curbside, guests enjoyed a buffet, cocktails and live music. The buzz that evening was about how well liked and trusted for over 25 years Rancho Santa Fe Insurance owner Craig Edward is. Guess that’s why he’s known as the insurance “go to” guy in the community.
Edward’s clients list is a who’s who of the community including John Moores of the Padres, Andrew Viterbi of Qualcomm and author Joseph Wambaugh.

Meanwhile, the Old Globe Theatre Gala truly sparkled with generous supporters this year. Honoree Audrey Geisel of the Dr. Seuss Empire decided to kick in an extra $250,000 donation this year. That’s in addition to her longtime donation to the Globe for production rights to “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.”
Also in a generous mode was Darlene Shiley, who gave $200,000. She and Sheryl White were the event’s co-chairs. They presided over a stellar evening that featured Hershey Felder in a phenomenal performance as Leonard Bernstein, followed by dinner and dancing to the new “it” band Impulse.
Among the crowd was Conrad Prebys, who has not only been generous to the Globe and the San Diego Zoo, but he also just gave a whopping $45 million to Scripps Health.

Voice Your Opinion

We Want Your Opinions on San Diego’s Big Issues In the coming months, Probosky Research (one of California’s leading opinion research firms) will continue its partnership with SD METRO to survey San Diego residents about topics of interest to our readers. We’d like to throw open the door for suggestions for topics. What do you want to know? What do you think you know, but aren’t sure? What are you certain you know, but want to prove it beyond doubt? Ideally, we’d like to see questions that have to do with public policy.

Some areas may include Mayor Filner’s first 100 days job performance, should the city be responsible for economic growth and the creation of new jobs, how important are infrastructure improvements to our daily lives (streets and bridges, etc.), how important is water independence, how satisfied are residents with public transit or how do city residents value Balboa Park and other open spaces? Do you believe the City Council should revive the Plaza de Panama plan for Balboa Park?
