The EW Foundation celebrated its fourth annual Musical Brunch on Feb. 4 at Club Colette with books, bellinis and bel canto.
Chairwoman Suzanne Holmes — along with international honorary chairwoman Hermé deWyman Miro, and honorary chairman and chairwoman Arthur Benjamin and Gail Worth — welcomed guests to the sold-out event that supported outreach programs and book provision to low-income communities.

Cocktails were followed by a two-course luncheon of Mediterranean quiche and lemon sorbet with candied violets.
Classically trained opera singers Jenene Caramielo and Juliette Valle, along with pianist Robert Sharon, captivated the audience with four award-winning songs.
“Many of the children that EWF serves find it hard to escape the harsh reality of their world. The books they receive can be the doorway that leads to a bigger, better world for them,” Holmes said. “For underprivileged children, the needs are too great, and the resources too few to provide for all that they need to nurture their bodies, their minds and their souls. The money we raise here today will provide tools that could be life changing for children in Title I schools.”
