In keeping with tradition, The Country Friends Art of Fashion recognizes those who have given their time and talents to help further the organization’s mission of supporting human care agencies. This year’s honoree is Maggie Bobileff, a Rancho Santa Fe business woman, philanthropist, and fashionista. Maggie co-chaired the Art of Fashion last year with her dear friend, Denise Hug. She has served on the AOF committee and on The Country Friends Board of Directors for a decade, and given selflessly and tirelessly to many causes.
