Argyros couple to receive philanthropy award

Former U.S. Ambassador to Spain George Argyros and his wife, Julia, will be honored by the United Cerebral Palsy of Orange County later this month for their support of the organization.

The Newport Beach billionaire couple will be awarded the Irvine-based organization's IMPACT award during its Life Without Limits Gala at 5:30 p.m. March 26 at the Balboa Bay Club & Resort, 1221 W. Coast Hwy., Newport Beach.

United Cerebral Palsy of Orange County is a support system for children with cerebral palsy and other developmental disabilities, and their families.

The pair, who have been married for 49 years, will be recognized for their support while the organization has been going through budget cuts, said Cathleen Collins, CEO of the United Cerebral Palsy of Orange County, according to news release.

This year's theme, "Glimmer of Hope: A Night to Shine in the Emerald City," will include a cocktail reception, dinner and award ceremony.

The black-tie event will also feature a live auction, wine drawing, a performance of music from "Wicked" and dancing to the music of Liquid Blue.
