The C.H.I.P.S. Annual Spring Luncheon 2013

May 9, 2013

The C.H.I.P.S. (Colleagues Helpers in Philanthropic Service) set the scene for a breathtaking Annual Spring Luncheon, beneath chandeliers and all white décor in a private enclave on Neiman Marcus Beverly Hills’ second floor. The intimate sold-out event treated guests to an exclusive view of Valentino’s Fall 2013 collection and an opportunity drawing which included lavish Neiman Marcus gift certificates and a plush Valentino bag. Guests were welcomed by Ariela Shani, VP of Neiman Marcus who introduced The C.H.I.P.S.’ President Cara Leonetti Esposito. Cara acknowledged and praised honoree, Rochelle Gores Fredston for her generous work with Children’s Institute and for her creation of the Philanthropic Society Los Angeles (PSLA), CII’s newest support group comprised of young business professionals. To everyone’s astonishment, Rochelle concluded her acceptance speech by announcing to the crowd that PSLA is pledging a $500,000 gift to Children’s Institute’s Watts Project over the next two years!
