On Wednesday, Oct 28, 2015 at 11:30 am, LWRWC will host the Fashion Show Fundraiser Luncheon “Bewitching Glamor” at Michaels on East in Sarasota.

Fun, Friendship and community Service will entwine at this festive fundraiser to support the most critical needs of the Club’s three adopted 501(c)(3) adopted charities: 1) Hope Family Services of Manatee County (for victims of domestic violence); 2) SMART (Sarasota Manatee Riding Therapy); and 3) Solve Maternity Homes.

The show will feature beautiful fashions from Foxy Lady modeled by three representatives from the adopted charities and ten women from LWRWC.

Approximately 300 attendees will enjoy a gourmet lunch in elegant surrounding with beautiful decorations, live music, raffle prizes and a fabulous silent auction.

To enhance the fun in fundraising the committee also arranged for a photo booth by WGPhotos and Wicket Gate Photography, LLC to provide every attendee with glamorous photos free of charge! You can visit them online at  www.wgphotos.com.

As a community service, the LWRWC sponsors a garage sale twice a year at the request of the HOA’s of Greenbrook, Summerfield, and Riverwalk.  In order to participate in the sale, residents pay a small fee of $5 to cover the cost of advertising,

Particpants display their “for sale” items in their own driveway and keep all proceeds.  You must live in Riverwalk, Summerfield, or Greenbrook to “sell”, but anyone can “buy”.

The 2015 Fall Garage Sale is scheduled for Saturday, October 17. Permits will be available in Town Hall starting  September 1.   For more information, contact Frankie Bailey at ==> FBailey@lwrwc.org or  Linda Slapak at ==> LSlapak@lwrwc.org.
