The Colleagues Annual Spring Luncheon 2013

April 9, 2013

The Colleagues dazzled Los Angeles with another fabulous Annual Spring Luncheon, this year honoring legendary philanthropist Wallis Annenberg. More than 800 guests filled the grand ballroom at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in anticipation of the event, which was kicked off by a moving speech from Colleagues’ President Alexandra Dwek. Guests dined while taking in the elegant Fall 2013 collection from renowned designer Oscar de la Renta, and engaged in a lively auction facilitated by Master of Ceremonies Wendy Burch. Former congressman David Dreier presented the Champion of Children Award to Ms. Annenberg, whose stunning acceptance speech concluded with her announcement of an incredible $500,000 gift from The Annenberg Foundation to the programs and services of CII, recognizing our integrated services model as a “new paradigm of change.” Special thanks to Van Cleefs & Arpels for being a luncheon sponsor.
