A lovely afternoon spent with my friend, Paul Newman, to benefit his Hole in The Wall Gang Camp

Last weekend, I was invited to the 7th annual Polo for Children luncheon to benefit the Hole in The Wall Gang Camp held at the exclusive Greenwich Polo Club in Conyers Farm.  Polo for Children, of course, features a most exciting polo match.  A very delicious luncheon was served and there was also a live and a silent auction that took place.  My hosts for the event were Jane Green, the author and Ian Warburg, my friend.

These are my hosts, author Jane Green and businessman, Ian Warburg.  Isn't her hat wonderful?

Here I am with Jane and Ian.  Jane was celebrating her 40th birthday.
Many of her friends, including her lovely parents, flew in from London
for the weekend, which included the very worthwhile fund raiser for the camp.

My friend, Susan Warburg, Ian's mother, first introduced me to the Newmans many years ago.

The man himself, Paul Newman, founder of the camp
and me.  I have known Paul and his wife, Joanne Woodward, for many
years. In fact, I raised money for the camp years ago with a show house
in Westport, CT.

Freddie Mannering came to the US with her mom, Giselle, a well-known
British interior designer.  Freddie loved the event which was focused,
of course, on children.

Here I am wearing one of Suzanne's wonderful hats, along with Giselle, and Freddie.

James Naughton, the very talented actor/singer, joined his great friend, founder of the camp, Paul Newman, to conduct the auction - lots of money was raised.
