Hollywood in Margaritaville: Orlando's Margarita Society pours margaritas
in plastic cups, invites about 4,000 uptown friends -- and donates thousands of toys to underprivileged
At the fifth Margarita Society Ball Saturday, bright red fire trucks, train sets, bikes, dolls and stuffed bears
were stacked ceiling high in the grand ballroom of the Peabody Orlando. Attorney Lawrence Watson, one of the 25 businessmen and lawyers who make up the Margarita Society, estimated the guests gave 6,000 toys as their tickets for admission to the party. The toys will be distributed to area youngsters through civic groups, child abuse shelters and day care centers.
