Newport Beach's tony Ritz Restaurant was the setting for the Big Canyon Spyglass Hill Philharmonic dinner on May 26.
It welcomed more than 100 patrons to a fabulous evening with entertainment by the talented "Baker Boys." If you have not enjoyed an evening at The Ritz when the Baker Boys are performing, you are missing a special treat, as their talent is impressive and they make the evening memorable.
Philharmonic supporters Darby and Bill Manclark, Martha and Malcolm Green, Al and Margaret Clark, Joyce and Al Dieda, and Patricia and Otis Cranford, were among the glamorous crowd that enjoyed a four-course dinner featuring an entree of filet mignon and Atlantic salmon.
Darby Manclark served as planning chair for the party — appropriately labeled "Puttin' on the Ritz" — and received support from Barbara Steinberg and Barbara Taylor. For 50 years the Philharmonic Society of Orange County has sponsored music and cultural programs for O.C. school children, with the Big Canyon Spyglass Hill chapter being a steadfast adjunct for the cause.
