The Desert Foothills Woman’s Club Celebration
January 21, 2009
The Desert Foothills Woman’s Club, the oldest club in the Desert Foothills area, will be holding their annual fundraiser on Saturday, February 7, at Terravita Country Club, from 5 – 9:00 p.m. The event, called “Celebrating Music of Our Decades,” will salute the Club’s 40 years of friendship, fun, and the satisfaction of supporting worthy community organizations and providing scholarship funds to enable some special young women to continue their schooling after high school graduation.
The evening will start off with a cocktail hour with pianist Mike Golding and songstress Eileen Mager providing the musical entertainment from those 40 years, while attendees sip libations, connect up with friends, and explore and bid on the exciting things at the Club’s silent auction tables.
Dinner follows, along with a live auction conducted by Carefree auctioneer Ted Dimon.
Finally the Terravita Band will take over the entertainment, playing more music from those decades, providing attendees plenty of opportunity to relax, visit with friends, and kick up their heels and dance.
The Club has taken a different approach to the silent auction idea: There will be a collection of baskets to bid on, each stocked with goodies to match its special theme. For example, there is a wine and cheese basket, a spa basket, a library basket, and so on. The packages for the live auction include such treats a two-night stay with spa package at the J. W. Marriott Resort & Spa in Las Vegas, and an evening of musical entertainment tailored to the tastes of the lucky winner.
Proceeds will go to benefit various local community organizations, and to support the Club’s scholarship program.
Attendance is limited. Tickets are $50, and must be purchased in advance. For information, call Carol Wilson (480-488-0341).
