Tea Party!

| July 10, 2014 | Parties National

A sold-out crowd of 300 ladies (and a few gents) donned brightly colored frocks and fun fascinators, and filled The Pacific Club for the Adoption Guild’s Patroness Tea. Neiman Marcus’ fashion presentation, featuring designers Alexander McQueen and Giorgio Armani, delighted—as did the silent auction’s luxe items. A menu of quiches and scones provided the perfect snacks for attendees in between rounds of bidding, and guests listened on as new parents Susan and Armen Chakmakian shared their experience with the adoption process. Teacups were toasted for the nonprofit’s efforts to give every child a family of his own. –Photos by Ann Chatillon
