In this week's column, Candace Jordan covered the Friends of Conservation's 21st annual black tie ball and the 10th annual Handbags & Halos luncheon. The black tie ball began with a close encounter with rare leopards and a meet-and-greet with renowned wildlife expert (and former "Wild Kingdom" star) Jim Fowler. The Handbags & Halos luncheon, which benefited the Howard Brown Health Center, was held at the Palmer House Hilton and featured a keynote address from Jamee Gregory, a New York philanthropist and author. To learn more about these events read Candace Jordan's column "Candid Candace."
