WINTER WONDERFUL: ESTATE OF TONY PRITZKER

Held Dec. 3 at the Beverly Hills home of Jeanne and Anthony Pritzker with its dramatic open-to-the-skies interiors and spectacular views of the city, the annual sale of designer  wreaths raised more than $80,000 for the charity’s mission to help foster children find adoptive homes.

Although I’ve already attended three charity events at the Pritzker home, I always look forward to parties there and applaud the Pritzkers for so generously opening their home to so many good causes. (Other fundraisers were ABT’s Stars Under the Stars Gala and the UCLA Institute for the Environment’s Inaugural Gala.) 

The one-of-a-kind wreaths - several of them pictured in the photo gallery below - sat on easels in rooms throughout the home. Contributors included Virginia Madsen, Lilakoi Moon, Andy Griffith, Rose Apodaca, Nina Segal, Sharon Segal, Trina Turk, Kirk Nix, Joan Ransohoff, Suzie Parkinson, Alan Chin, Shiva Rose, Tissy Eggleston, Kathleen Rosenbloom, Sigitas Sniras, Darius Gylys, and many other artists, designers and celebrities.
