An Afternoon with Oscar de la Renta

April 20, 2010

The Colleagues, CII’s premier support group, hosted their 21st Annual Spring Luncheon in April. The elegant event traditionally features an internationally renowned fashion designer and preview of his or her collection, and the presentation of the “Champion of Children” award to a noteworthy individual for his or her commitment and service to vulnerable children.

Accepting this year’s award was legendary designer and active philanthropist Oscar de la Renta, who was recognized by actress Diane Lane. Mr. de la Renta unveiled his Fall 2010 Collection, which drew wall-to-wall applause from the capacity crowd at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. This year, The Colleagues added a special surprise by inviting young students from CII’s Performing Arts program to showcase their musical talents. All proceeds from the event benefit CII.
