Local Philanthropists Honored

Despite a brief emergency evacuation during the VIP media reception prior to the 2012 National Philanthropy Day Orange County luncheon held last week at the Hyatt Regency Orange County, the event celebrating nine of Orange County’s outstanding philanthropists, business leaders and individuals was, as always, a stand-out event.

More than 800 attendees gathered for the luncheon, appropriately themed “Giving is Always in Season,” joining to celebrate the honorees for their outstanding generosity in the community.
