Join us Monday, March 11th from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Aqua Lounge at Fashion Island Hotel in Newport Beach for our March “Dames Raise the Bar” Happy Hour. We welcome all women in the F&B and Hospitality industry to come and share in the conversation and benefit other women at our monthly give-back happy hour. Just $25 includes your first drink, delicious bites, and valet parking.

Our featured Dame is Marguarite Clark, a seasoned public relations veteran with 20+ years of PR and marketing experience in hospitality, culinary and specialty services. Marguarite – who is also a certified sommelier – opened Montage Laguna Beach in 2003, has launched many restaurants, including Orange County’s newest hot spot, Ocean at Main, and has worked with Irvine Company for over a dozen years, assisting with its various resort properties – including our host venue, Fashion Island Hotel. Marguarite will introduce Brittany Valles, new executive chef for Oak Grill and Aqua Lounge, who will share with us her delicious bites.

Net proceeds benefit scholarships for women in hospitality and culinary educational programs. Come for the drinks, stay for the conversation...RAISE THE BAR!
