The Fashionable Women of Chapman hosted its 24th Annual “Christmas at The Ritz” holiday luncheon fundraiser Dec. 4, once again wowing guests with its trademark festive event that benefits the group’s Dodge College endowment.

And while the fashion show and festivities held at The Ritz Restaurant & Garden in Newport Beach were wonderful, the star of the day was the philanthropic spirit of all those who support the event, which raised $251,220 for the endowment. Boosting the net proceeds to a record high for Christmas at The Ritz was an on-the-spot donation from Milan and Milena Panic. Milan Panic is a member of the President’s Cabinet at Chapman.
