Annabel Monaghan promises that in spite of the title, “Parenthood – State of the Union” will be a non-partisan speech. The bestselling local author, columnist and mother of three sons will bring her very own mix of clever humor and pointed observations to this year’s Rye Youth Council (RYC) Spring Luncheon.
The Luncheon will take place on May 4, 2017 at Shenorock Shore Club. Susan McGovern serves as the Honorary Chair and will be recognized at the event for her many years of service to the community. Tickets are on sale now. Tickets start at $130 and go to $5,000 for a table of ten.
“Annabel has a knack of putting into words what so many of us are going through”, says Lisa Dominici Faries, President of the RYC Board of Directors.
