Leonore Annenberg’s penchance for keeping everything from important social events at Sunnylands is about to be shared with the world.
Starting Jan. 19, Sunnylands will display items from five major events at the Rancho Mirage destination through January 2015.
“The Pleasure of Your Company: Entertaining at Sunnylands” will feature collectibles like a signed menu from President Barack Obama’s summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping, 24 karat gold plates, fine linens, and Barbara Sinatra’s wedding dress.
