If the white tents and arrival of 350 people to the streets of Oakmont on Aug. 22 weren't enough to pique the curiosity of the locals, the sudden presence of a few willowy models guaranteed that the gawking had begun.

The evening also included strolling magic with Lee Terbosic, whose tricks included — what else? Money burning a hole in his wallet.

Created in honor of her mother, the event remains near and dear for Carabella owner Carol Kinkela.

“We have a goal of $100K. ... I'm not going to stop before we get it,” she said.
