FABULOUS HATS ON …

AT THE CHAPEAU MONT ROYAL BENEFIT LUNCHEON! 

Under a bright sun and cerulean skies, over 400 guests sporting a majestic array of creative hats and head-ware, recently made their way into the historic-chic Mount Royal Chalet for the annual Chapeau mont Royal Benefit Luncheon, which was an even bigger smash than usual with Ungava Gin and Quartz vodka cocktails; exquisite eats by the Fairmont Queen E.; fashion show featuring tailored men’s suits by Finezza – Au nom de l’Homme; and spotlight on the mastery of several local haute couture hat makers.

Icing on the hats? $150,000 raised for Les amis de la montagne youth educational programs.

Count this Social Gal in for 2018. 😉
