The Greater L.A. chapter of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation (www.crohnscolitisfoundation.org) celebrated its 10th annual Women of Distinction Luncheon at The Beverly Hilton. Honorees included: Brooke Abbott, creator/blogger for The Crazy Creole Mommy Chronicles and owner of The Crazy Creole Mommy Life, Inc.; Shawn Lacy Bullen, owner/managing director of Biscuit Filmworks; and Roxy Sowlaty, a Beverly Hills-based interior designer.

Co-chaired by Caryl Golden, Cathy Greenly and Ronda Lippman, the 350+ guests enjoyed a fashion show hosted by Bloomingdale’s Century City.

Honoree Brooke Abbott’s son, Jaxon Honeycutt, gave a moving speech on behalf of his mother. Shawn Lacy Bullen spoke about her son and how proud she is of him and Roxy Sowlaty spoke lovingly about her father and sister who are both Crohn’s patients.

The nearly $400,000 proceeds from the luncheon benefited the foundation, which is at the forefront of research in Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, committed to innovation and collaboration through uniting all patients, caregivers, providers, donors, and researchers to find cures for these diseases. For the past 50 years, it has supported the IBD community with the goal to ultimately achieve our vision­–a future free of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative Colitis.
