The Ladies of the Court, the Women’s Board of the Sandra Day O’Connor Institute, hosted their second annual Legacy Luncheon on May 10 at the Arizona Biltmore. Following the success of Laura Bush as the guest for last year’s event, Dr. Jill Biden, former second lady, spoke about her new book Where the Light Enters, Building a Family, Discovering Myself. Guests at the event each left with a copy of the book. She was introduced by Caryll Kyl.
The luncheon menu was based on Biden’s recipe for Parmesan Chicken, which she often serves on a typical Sunday evening at the Biden home. In addition, chefs at the Arizona Biltmore prepared the former second lady’s Vegetable Chips with Bleu Cheese Dip and Sweet and Spicy Pecans. The meal was entirely gluten-free.
Following Biden’s presentation, the Honorable Ruth McGregor, former chief justice of the Arizona Supreme Court, conducted a parlor conservation with her on stage.
Gena Bonsall and Penny Gunning co-chaired the luncheon.
