Beverly Hills Women’s Club to Honor Councilmember Nazarian on March 19

The Beverly Hills Women’s Club (BHWC) will honor Councilmember Sharona Nazarian at a luncheon on March 19. Nazarian is the first Iranian American woman elected to the Beverly Hills City Council and will begin a term as vice mayor in April. She will speak about her work with the “Woman, Life, Freedom” movement. Additionally, longstanding Beverly Hills business proprietor Rita Kevorkian as well as notable BHWC members will be recognized at the event. 

The theme of the luncheon is “Commemorating Women’s History Month and Women Making History Today!” and it will take place from 12 to 2 p.m. at the Club, located at 1700 Chevy Chase Drive. Founded in 1916, the BHWC is the oldest continually operating organization in Beverly Hills, save for the local government (established two years prior). Its mission statement includes the advancement in all lines of general culture, the opportunity for social service and the upbuilding of a community spirit in the city. The BHWC clubhouse, designed by renowned Los Angeles architectural team Gable & Wyant, is included on the National Register of Historic Places and designated Landmark #3 by the city of Beverly Hills. Guests are welcome to many BHWC events, including the March 19 luncheon. To RSVP, visit
