The first ladies holiday luncheon and boutique at Old Palm Golf Club, is sure to be the first of many, due to the enormous success. Nearly 130 ladies recently attended the elegant affair in our Mizner-inspired Clubhouse. Shopping, phenomenal food and charity were the attractions. The ladies had the opportunity to shop for luxury merchandise from more than a dozen prestigious designers—with a generous portion of the proceeds going to the American Heart Association. The merchandise included original, handmade jewelry from Cristiana Shields (Brooke’s sister). Jay Strongwater displayed collections of dazzling figurines, charms and home goods. And exotic leather handbags and accessories were available from Daniella Ortiz, a boutique in the heart of Palm Beach. By the end of the affair, more than $8,000 was donated to charity. It was a heartfelt gesture that’s sure to be continued at our next ladies luncheon.
