Puttin’ on the Ritz in Chicago


Amidst a sea of pink, red and fuschia in the opulent Greenhouse at the Ritz-Carlton Chicago, Sir Bunky Cushing hosted a posh group of philanthropic women on Tuesday, February 12. An annual flight of fancy, Sir Bunky’s high tea is an invite-only for his closest friends. The tea is held in the atrium in the lobby of the Ritz-Carlton next to the restaurant Deca. A variety of teas, coffee, scones with cream and decadent desserts were displayed on an extended table adorned with luscious, tropical flowers. Champagne was sipped as guests conversed with one another catching up on the latest happenings in Chicago, Palm Beach and Palm Springs. This extravagant event is Sir Bunky’s way of saying thank you to all of those who support his charitable causes and events throughout the year. Thank you, Sir Bunky…
