Screen Actors Guild Foundation "Tea In the Desert"

Today I attended the "Tea in the Desert" Event to benefit the Screen Actor's Guild Foundation. It was held at the historic O'Donnell House nestled in the mountain side overlooking Palm Springs. Held in conjunction with the Palm Springs International Film Festival, the event was brimming with Hollywood celebrities, various SAG members and the local elite from the Coachella Valley. Attendees included: Dick Van Patten, Jimmy Van Patten, Connie Stevens, Valerie Harper, JoBeth Williams, Adam Beach, Mitch Ryan, Mary Hart, and Jerry Penacoli among others.
Here's John and I posing at the red carpet, and Integrated Wealth Management Hosts Jason and Jim

Guests were greeted by dashing gentlemen wearing dark suits, bolwer hats and sunflower unbrellas.
The party decor was planned flawlessly by Little Divas, Inc.
