On May 6th, 226 guests attended the New-York Historical Society’s (N-YHS) annual Strawberry Festival Luncheon. Kimberly B. Davis (President of the JPMorgan Chase Foundation) was the honoree of the event and Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum (President of Spelman College) served as keynote speaker. Ms. Davis is a graduate and trustee of Spelman College.

Vendura Jewelry held a trunk show at the event that featured their incredible 70th Anniversary Collection (the company also donated ten percent of the proceeds to N-YHS).

By all accounts, this was the New York Historical Society’s most successful Strawberry Festival Luncheon. The event raised a whopping $230,000 - which is record breaking. Bravo to the Committee and N-YHS for their efforts!

Thanks to Robert Katz for sharing these amazing photos!
