Diamond Award Brunch with Lynn McBee

On June 7th, lovely ladies gathered at the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek for a brunch honoring Lynn McBee. In early May, the RSVP Social Calendar sent out a newsletter asking for friends, co-workers, and family to nominate women their outstanding service in our community. With the support of the Montage Deer Valley Resort, The Mansion on Turtle Creek, the RSVP Calendar, Oscar de la Renta, Kiehl's, and Dr. Naznin Karsan-Khimji, one woman out of the many submissions was chosen to receive the Diamond Award to honor her exceptional service and time commitment to charitable and philanthropic causes. We are so proud to announce that the premiere award was presented to Lynn McBee!

The brunch was held in the Hunt Suite at the Mansion on Turtle Creek and the atmosphere was warm and filled with exceptionally bright spirits. After coffee and hugs, the RSVP Calendar's very own Kimberly Schlegel Whitman presented Lynn with an intricately engraved silver platter and thanked her for all she has done. "It was so wonderful to be able to honor Lynn McBee," said Kimberly, "As the nominations came in, it was very clear that our amazing city is filled with worthy recipients! There are so many incredible volunteers who work hard to enhance the lives of others. Recognizing these incredible women was something that I had wanted to do for a very long time!" And, of course, surrounded by such stylish company, when Lynn stepped up to receive the award, there was an outspoken, "Oooh! I love her shoes!" from a neighboring table.

After receiving her award, Lynn very humbly spoke a few words and said that she was standing there because of the efforts of everyone in the room and thanked all of her guests for all that they do in our community. It was a very sweet ending to an inspiring morning.
