ALL IN THE FAMILY: A (mostly) ladies luncheon honoring Cathy Russell, a former administrative assistant to (then-Sen.) Joe Biden, who now works as Dr. Jill Biden’s chief of staff. NOTHING LIKE ‘AT HOME’: Guests appreciated the chance to chat at the leisurely and rather rare mid-week affair at the Berman residence, once owned by arts patron Paul Mellon. ONE OF OUR OWN: Mrs. Berman most wisely and thoughtfully added several wise advisors to the list – fellow former White House social secretaries Letitia Baldrige, Capricia Marshall, Gahl Hodges Burt, and Ann Stock, plus former chief of protocol Lucky Roosevelt.
