If one is in the habit of coming to benefits and the sorts of fetes that champion philanthropic causes they will undeniably find themselves beguiled, charmed and a smidgen curious as to how such things ever come together. One need look no further than wonder girl and celebrity blogger and omnipresent socialite Tia Walker as she heralded last night’s second annual ‘Save the Eggs Benefit’ at the Williams Club.
