Handbags and humor - a luncheon for The Center for Family Services
The Center for Family Services’ 16th annual “Old Bags Luncheon” will take place 10:30 a.m. Feb. 27 at The Breakers. Linda Adelson, Lorrain Hall and Soula Rifkin will serve as co-chairwomen. Honorary co-chairpersons are Joan Klann and Kitty Silverstein and advisory chairwoman is Judi Richards.
This event will feature a silent auction of more than 300 designer handbags and jewelry, a raffle and a luncheon with comedian Darrell Hammond.
For years, Hammond has brought to life a variety of politicians, media figures, celebrities and newsmakers on television. His impressions include Bill Clinton, Regis Philbin, Dan Rather, John Travolta, Jesse Jackson, Richard Dreyfus, Jay Leno, Donald Trump and Sean Connery in the popular “Celebrity Jeopardy” skits.
He holds the title for being the longest running cast member on “Saturday Night Live,” for the most impressions by a single SNL cast member and for the most times saying the show’s catch phrase, “Live FromNew York, It’s Saturday Night!” In addition to his SNL appearances, Hammond has been seen in a number of feature films, television shows and on Broadway.
Hammond will entertain the crowd at the “Old Bags Luncheon” with his impersonations and share his personal story with the audience.
Proceeds from luncheon will benefit The Center for Family Services’ programs, providing help to children who suffer from domestic violence, sexual abuse or homelessness. Tickets are $350 per person.
Major sponsors of the luncheon include Saks Fifth Avenue andNeiman Marcus; jewelry sponsor is Kaufmann de Suisse and corporate sponsor is PNC Bank.
