The Center for Family Services‘ Sixteenth Annual Old Bags Luncheon™ will take place at 10:30 A.M. on February 27 at The Breakers – One S. County Rd, Palm Beach. Linda Adelson, Lorrain Hall and Soula Rifkin will serve as chairwomen. Honorary chairs are Joan Klann and Kitty Silverstein and advisory chair is Judi Richards. This electrifying event features a magnificent silent auction of over 300 designer handbags, jewelry, a raffle and a luncheon with comedian Darrell Hammond.
For years now, Darrell Hammond has brought to life a cavalcade of politicians, media figures, celebrities and newsmakers on television. Every one of his impressions are applauded by television critics and viewers alike, for their accuracy and range. He holds the title for being the longest running cast member on Saturday Night Live, for the most impressions by a single SNL cast member, and for the most times saying the show’s catch phrase “Live From New York, It’s Saturday Night!” In addition to his SNL appearances, Hammond has been seen in a number of feature films, television shows, and on Broadway. A truly versatile actor, Darrell has displayed his talents in both dramatic and comedic roles. On television, he received tremendous reviews for his portrayal of a deranged but intense criminal defense lawyer in Law and Order: SVU. Darrell is also a New York Times bestselling author. His book, “God If You’re Not Up There, I’m F***ed: Tales of Stand-Up, Saturday Night Live, and Other Mind-Altering Mayhem” bravely chronicles his personal journey through trauma and addiction into recovery, and is being adapted into a Broadway play.
Darrell will entertain the crowd at The Center for Family Services’ Old Bags Luncheon™ with his impersonations and share his personal story with the audience.
