Recently, the festival of Children's Foundation led by philanthropic Sandra Segerstrom Daniels hosted an event for some 450 homeless O.C. kids from various local shelters. The big thrill of the event was a surprise appearance by super-star actress and singer Miley Cyrus.

The upbeat event enjoyed the support of local organizations including The Young Presidents, Athletes First and The Happiness Project. Also on hand was the iconic Hello Kitty, who appeared courtesy of the Sanrio store at South Coast Plaza.

Cyrus was over the moon, commenting, "I've fulfilled one of my dreams — actually getting to meet Hello Kitty."

The hundreds of local kids no doubt felt the same about getting to meet Miley.

THE CROWD runs Thursdays and Saturdays. B.W. Cook is editor of the Bay Window, the official publication of the Balboa Bay Club in Newport Beach.
