I Remember When Athena Award Recipients in Huntington Beach Dressed Alike



Huntington Beach.--I remember when - Nouha Hreish (left) and June Dugmore wore similar outfits for their awards luncheon ceremony at the Huntington Beach Chamber of Commerce Luncheon.


If you're a woman and find that wearing the same outfit as another person in the room isn't so great, remember the episode of "I Love Lucy" where Lucy and Ethel did son, and began tearing off each other's costume dresses at their stage performance about friendship.


Well the photo above taken at the Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort shows one such moment when the two ladies receiving the Chamber of Commerce's most prestigious award for women, the Athena Award, looked like they planned the match for their honored event.


Yet in grace and style of a professional jeweler who has all the diamonds a woman could desire, and a beauty pageant director who takes young, budding women under her wings and leads them into competition, both of these women with their white jackets and black trim could not have been more gracious or fun.


The event was combined with an appearance by Dan Quayle's wife, Marilyn. Remember when Quayle put his hat in the ring to run for president? Marilyn Quayle came to Huntington Beach for a fund-raising event around the time of this Athena Awards luncheon, so she dined at the event with other guests.
