Schepens Eye Research Institute Vision of Beauty Luncheon

Olivia Newton-John and husband John Easterling presented the 2009 "Vision of Beauty" luncheon on behalf of the Schepens Eye Research Institute at the Mar-a-Lago Club on December 2, 2009 in Palm Beach.

The event raised almost $120,000 for eye research at the Institute.

A special highlight of the event was a fashion presentation by Neiman
Marcus Palm Beach, featuring fashions by guest designers Mark Badgley and
James Mischka who attended the luncheon.

Considered to be the kickoff of the Palm Beach social season, the event
included a reception with a silent auction and boutique of Judith Ripka
Jewelry and Judith Leiber handbags, as well as a raffle for a shopping
spree at Neiman Marcus Palm Beach.

Kenneth M. Fischer, president and chief operating officer of
the Institute, presented an update on the ongoing research at
the Institute.

Kathryn Vecellio and Judith Murat Grubman were honorary chairmen of the
event and Herme′ deWyman Miro was grand honorary chairman. Laurie
Silvers served as Mar-a-Lago host sponsor.
