Elegant Champagne Brunch

Information and photo provide by the Tri-Lakes Women’s Club.

The Tri-Lakes Women’s Club Bridge Groups hosted an elegant champagne brunch Sunday, June 24 for 12 lucky recipients at historic Estemere mansion in Palmer Lake, home of Kim (pictured above) and Roger Ward.

The brunch was the bridge clubs’ donation at a silent auction sponsored by the Tri-Lakes Women’s Club "Wine and Roses" charitable function in the fall of 2006. Shelley Pruett and Dan Franzen, who won the auction, invited 12 of their friends to enjoy the brunch, and a tour of Estemere given by Roger Ward. Proceeds from this gala event went to charitable causes.

All china, crystal, and silver were from Gloria Ingram’s private collection. The brunch was prepared by co-chairmen Gloria Ingram and Sandra Coffee, Marina Nelson, Kim Ward, and Geri Weis. Servers were Ronnie Goldberg and Ruth Higgins. The menu included Midori, eggs Benedict, crab cakes Grand–Mere, chicken strudel, and port-poached pears, all served with appropriate accompanying wines. A cheese board, assorted fruit and demitasse coffee finished the seven course menu.

The Tri-Lakes Women’s Club currently has over 200 members and is incorporated as a non-profit organization exclusively for charitable and educational purposes. In the past 31 years, it has proudly granted more than $500,000 to schools, fire and police departments and other non-profit 501(c) (3) organizations that provide services to residents within the boundaries of Lewis-Palmer School District 38.
