On Saturday, January 23, 2010 at 7:30 P.M., native New Yorker and real estate broker for Warburg Realty Partnership Christine Miller Martin celebrated her 40th birthday with over 200 of her friends and family. The black tie party took place at the Burden Mansion, which was transformed into a nightclub. Guests were greeted in a spectacular royal fashion by the 50-member Saffron United Pipe Band organized by close family friend, Sir Roy Lindsay Morrow.
The venue has a special significance for the hostess, as the building by day is the Convent of the Sacred Heart, which Christine attended, and where her daughter Phoebe is now enrolled.
Guests included Christine’s classmates, friends, colleagues, and clients from Harvard, Shelter Island, Warburg Realty, and the White House (she was an intern for George H.W. Bush’s administration). As the former Chair of younger members at the Cosmopolitan Club, there were many members of the Cosmopolitan, Colony, Union, and Racquet & Tennis Club in attendance.
A single mother and former trusts and estates attorney, Christine has been an active member of the community and serves on the alumni boards of Convent of the Sacred Heart and Middlesex School, is active at Wellesley, and sits on the Advisory Council for Lighthouse International and on the Visionary Circle for the 9/11 Memorial.
