TWO days after the international spectacle that was the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (where some of the most talked-about hats were displayed) an array of the finest and most colorful millinery was showcased during the annual Service Club of Chicago’s annual Spring Luncheon, with proceeds targeted for the group’s charitable efforts.
Widely known as “the hat luncheon” and with the theme “Vive Les Chapeaux,” there were large hats, small hats, chic hats, eye-catching hats, plain hats, feathered hats and other creative and captivating headgear on exhibit at Onwentsia Club in Lake Forest. Fascinators. Pillboxes. Boaters. Cocktails. Swingers. All were a part of the vibrant extravaganza that combined a good time with a helping hand.
The Service Club of Chicago is a charitable organization of women, which has continually served the welfare, civic, educational and cultural needs of Chicago and surrounding communities since 1890. The group’s policy of giving is to assist, improve and enlarge agency programs.
This year’s popular “hat luncheon,” co-chaired by Myra Reilly and Lynda Silverman, was one of the organization’s most successful and will benefit children and families through numerous Chicagoland agencies.
The Service Club of Chicago's annual Spring Luncheon featured a wide variety of trendy and creative millinery that literally turned heads.
