Newhouse House Party – Puttin’ on the Ritz

Newhouse House Party was held on November 20th at the Ritz Charles.  The theme was “Puttin’ on the Ritz” and all funds raised at the event will benefit the women and children served by the shelter.  Guests enjoyed a delicious dinner, live music and silent and live auctions.  One lucky live auction winner will receive a custom-made cake from ultimate cake artist Mike Elder, who is a three-time winner of TLC‘s “Cake Boss.”  Amy Fox served as the chairman.
