RYE, N.Y. -- The Rye Youth Council will host author Lee Woodruff at its annual Spring Benefit Luncheon at Shenorock Shore Club on Thursday, May 12.

She also authored "Perfectly Imperfect: A Life in Progress" and The New York Times best-seller and Washington Irving Book Award-winner "Those We Love Most."
The luncheon will take place from noon to 2:30 p.m.
