Puttin' on the Ritz

| February 5, 2013 | Parties National

It’s a tradition that has spanned 26 years, and for the 230 Women of Chapman members, the holiday season wouldn’t be the same without Christmas at The Ritz, an annual luncheon supporting Chapman University. The afternoon featured martinis on the patio, a fashion presentation by Mi Place and opportunity drawings that included a spectacular pair of diamond earrings, courtesy of Harry Winston. This year’s soirĂ©e brought together 350 guests—including lovely ladies like Julia Argyros, Leslie Cancellieri and Youngsong Martin—and raised more than $188,000. As for the luncheon menu—it featured The Ritz Egg topped with caviar. Now that’s a good egg! Photos by Peggy O’Donnell
