What: The Martinez-Arpin Foundation "Indigo Night: Couture Soirée."

Where: The swank pad of Tommy O'Neill and Brent Whiteley.

The lowdown: Carmen Maria Montiel joined O'Neill in chairing the third annual school supply drive and launch of a scholarship program for students seeking to advance studies in the arts. Heading the party scene was founder Alex Martinez-Arpin.

Designer Cesar Galindo introduced his fall line in a runway presentation with fashions accessorized with pieces from Grazia Fortuna Ward and JulieBeth Handbags. Earlier in the evening, Rafael Chavez and his three charming daughters modeled Roberto Cavalli fashions, while mom, Carmina Zamorano applauded. PBS fave Ernie Manouse emceed the program.

It was a generous group with one guest providing more than 200 backpacks filled with shirts, shoes, dental care and school supplies. Other guests contributed more than $5,000 in school supplies and $50,000 was raised for the inaugural scholarship fund.

Who: Tracy and Harry Faulkner, Vivian Wise, Cindi and Dr. Franklin Rose, Peter Martino, Christine and Matt Tabrizi, Lynn Mathre and Stuart Odell, Leisa Holland-Nelson, Dana Kervin, Marcus Sloan and Shannon Hall, and Staci and Quan Henderson.
