March 1, 2019 — President’s Message:
- Fashion Show for Cancer: Record Success
- 15th Anniversary Casino Party: $15 gets you all of THIS! (Mar 18)
- Kino Lecture on Monday, March 4
- Military Baby Shower Needs
- Community Connections: Honor Flight; Sahuarita Unified School District
- Upcoming Events
Thunderous applause and shouts of joy could be heard when the Fashion Show Co-Chairs announced that nearly $18,000 was raised for the American Cancer Society on Monday. Present to hear the great news were Denis Cournoyer and his team from the American Cancer Society; the Mayor of Sahuarita, Tom Murphy; and many sponsors. The 2019 Fashion Show fundraiser goes down in history as the most successful.
In addition to a terrific lunch and delightful fashion show featuring clothing from Sole Shoes and The Crowe’s Nest, attendees had fun browsing and bidding on gorgeous silent auction items, selecting from more than 60 fun and interesting raffle baskets, and taking a chance on the 50/50 raffle (lucky winner, Betsy Brown, received $2,013!).
“Thank you” many times over to the expertly organized, creative, and fun-loving Fashion Show committee. YOU DID IT! Thank you, also, to the many participants who contributed to the cause. Lives are better because of your generosity. PHOTOS by Eileen Sykora
♣️♦️ Let’s Celebrate Our Anniversary in Style!
Do you have your ticket to the 15th Anniversary Gala? If not, you’d better hurry! Tickets continue to sell. The March 18 Monte Carlo Casino Gala is only two weeks away. It doesn’t matter if you are not a gambler or don’t understand how to play blackjack or poker. Or, you wouldn’t know a roulette table from a craps table.
This party is about having fun…
…with fellow members and getting glitzy with friends. You can play at the gaming tables or you can just watch others take their chance.
The bars at the Clubhouse open at 2:30 and the ballroom Casino will be open 3:00 – 5:00. Your $15 ticket gets you admission, $500 of playing chips, passed hors d’oeuvres, and a sparkling toast.
You may even take home a great prize!
As of March 4th you may purchase tickets for your friends who are not The Women of Quail Creek members. Don’t let them miss this opportunity to party with you. Looking forward to seeing you there.
