Lisa Detanna of Raymond James and Elizabeth Kabler Host a Day at Sunnylands, "Camp David West"
LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Lisa Detanna, Managing Director and Senior Vice President of Investments
at Raymond James, Inc. along with the Los Angeles Wealth Advisory Team
of Raymond James recently hosted a special event at Sunnylands, often
referred to as "Camp David West," the family home of Walter and Lenore
Annenberg who served in prominent roles in the Reagan Administration.
Sunnylands hosted 7 US Presidents and has long been a place for world
leaders to gather to solve problems, discuss issues and get to know each
other socially while being entertained by celebrities like Frank
Sinatra, Bob Hope, Gregory Peck and more recently John Legend. The
estate sports a golf course and sits on 200 acres. The visitor's center
has had over 60,000 guests in its first year of being open to the public.
As noted in "The Annenberg Retreat at Sunnylands" in the March 8, 2013
edition of The Beverly Hills Courier, the day began with a tour
of the residence, which houses replicas of over a billion dollars in art
work, since donated to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The
guests then saw the film in the visitor's center theater about what
Sunnylands hopes to accomplish in the future.
At lunch, Lisa gave a presentation about Raymond James and how they help
individuals, families, institutions, foundations, endowments and
not-for-profit organizations to analyze, plan and choose investments
which are conflict-free, non-biased and provide top performance in good
markets as well as offer more protection in tough markets. She
emphasized Raymond James' philosophy that philanthropy and foundations
are an extension of a family.
Lisa's connection with the Annenberg family began when she met Marcia
Wilson Hobbs, fellow Board Member of the Beverly Hills Chamber of
Commerce. Marcia spent time with the Annenberg family as a child when
her parents, friends of Lenore and Walter all served together for Ronald
Reagan in the 1980's. Marcia introduced Lisa to Elizabeth Kabler, Lenore
Elizabeth and Marcia spoke at the Sunnylands event about what it was
like living in and visiting the home when they were children. They
described the elaborate menus created for the Presidents and other Heads
of State who would stay on the estate. Sunnylands is planning to publish
a cookbook to recreate some of the recipes from those days. Marcia also
talked about the Annenberg art collection, which Walter Annenberg had
taken the time to educate her about, leading to her great interest in
art and a long tenure at Christie's.
Elizabeth spoke about the high fashion often seen at Sunnylands and
their plan to host a fashion week featuring Lenore Annenberg's favorite
designers and the events where their clothes were worn.
One of the favorite moments of the event was the walk past the "Wall of
Memories," which exhibits photographs of famous heads of state, US
Presidents and celebrities who spent time at Sunnylands. Everyone who
attended was struck by the experiences and opportunities Elizabeth and
Marcia had growing up at Sunnylands. Lisa is happy to have provided a
taste of what it was like to be there back then.
