Philanthropist cocktail party:

Philanthropist owner Jessica Moment made a personal donation at the event, which raised more than $10,000 for LAS-ELC.

On Aug. 29 in the Fairmont Hotel’s Crown Room, more than 100 members of the Spinsters of San Francisco, a longtime social and philanthropic organization, kicked off the group’s 81st year with a traditional new-member tea.
