Bag Ladies!

| December 28, 2011 | Parties National

THE SCENE A glam, well-heeled crowd of 150 of Bunky Cushing’s lady friends (with a few gentlemen in the mix) gathered in the Palmer House Hilton’s gilded Empire Room for the annual Handbags & Halos luncheon. Stanley Paul tickled the piano keys as guests mingled, and Jamee Gregory—philanthropist, author and contributing editor to Architectural Digest—delivered the year’s keynote address. THE BOTTOM LINE More than $50,000 was raised for the Howard Brown Health Center through ticket sales and a raffle of designer handbags donated by Ralph Lauren, Tory Burch, Bulgari, Michael Kors, Escada, Diego Rocha and the 28 Shop at Macy’s.
