The San Marino Area Chapter of National Charity League recently held its annual Presentation Tea at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel. The tea celebrated the graduating seniors and their mothers who have demonstrated exceptional dedication to the 20 philanthropies that NCL serves. Both the mothers and daughters have embraced the NCL pillars of service, leadership and cultural awareness working side by side to give more than 20,000 hours of service. The event included the Hearts and Hands Auction, which raised more than $20,000 for the scholarship fund, which helps local women attend college, and concluded with a fashion show by the rising senior class of 2018. The 55th annual Debutante Ball will be held Dec. 22. The Tea and Ball co-chairs are Jacky Samartin and Christina Pink.
