The "Ladies Who Lunch and Read" topped off the annual Friends of the Laguna Beach Library fundraiser Tuesday at Sapphire with awards for the prettiest hats worn by supporters.
Kathleen Lechner won first prize. She wore one of her mother's hats in honor of Mother's Day.
Second prize went to school member Betsy Jenkins, wearing a side-brimmed blue and green silk "garden party" hat from Duet on Forest Avenue.
Librarian Jenny Gasset was awarded third prize for the floral fascinator she made herself. Fascinators are those confections attached to headbands seen often by viewers of the royal wedding.
"I recommend wearing a hat because if you don't, they make you the judge," said hatless Laguna Beach Community Foundation President Darrcy Loveland Bickel.
Friends of the Laguna Beach Library President Martha Lydick received an honorable mention for the navy blue straw hat that had been sitting in her closet unworn for three years since she bought it at Sutton Place.
