Hats, Hats, and More Hats!

On Wednesday, May 5th, I had the great pleasure of attending the 28th annual Frederick Law Olmsted Awards Luncheon held in the Conservatory Garden of Central Park in New York City.  As you may know, Frederick Law Olmsted, the famous American landscape designer and the father of American landscape architecture, designed many renowned urban parks, including the very magnificent Central Park.  Hosted by The Women’s Committee of the Central Park Conservancy, this luncheon, commonly referred to as The Hat Luncheon, is always so much fun.  The invitation states that hats are optional, but I think you will agree that most of these ladies take wearing hats very seriously.  This year, a record number of ladies attended and the event raised more than $2,400,000, which will be used to help keep Central Park the glorious haven that it is.  Please enjoy these photos and to view many others, click here.
