Hats off to the Women’s Committee of the Central Park Conservancy!

More than 1,200 ladies—and a few good men, including former Mayor Michael Bloomberg, PALMER’s Stefano Tonchi, and New York Social Diary’s David Patrick Columbia—gathered at the Vanderbilt Gate in NYC for the 41st Annual Frederick Law Olmstead Awards Luncheon—aka the “Hat Luncheon”—honoring Yesim Philip, Sara Cedar Miller and Weil, Gotshal & Manges. 

The event raised a remarkable $4.3 million to finance the upkeep and improvements of Central Park.

Those in attendance included Palm Beachers Hilary Geary Ross, Emilia Fanjul, Christine Schwarzman, Marlene Hess, Jennifer Fischer, Dee Ocleppo Hilfiger, Sarah Wetenhall, Eleanora Kennedy, Somers Farkas, Cathy Busch, Simone Levinson and Sylvia Hemingway.
