Mistletoe Market Marks Holiday Season
by Monika Templeman, LWRWC Publicity Chair
On Monday, December 7, 2015, the Lakewood Ranch Women’s Club members and friends celebrated the Season with the Mistletoe Market Luncheon Fundraiser at the Polo Grill in Lakewood Ranch.
The event was a sell-out and the beautifully decorated Fete Ballroom was filled to capacity as friends gathered to share holiday cheer.
Vendors offered countless choices of holiday and personal items including fine art, fiber art, artisan crafts, handcrafted jewelry, purses, clothing, children’s items, home décor, food and gadgets and holiday decor. With the joy of giving on everyone’s mind, the ladies delighted in the fabulous shopping experience that offered a wide array of lovely and unique holiday gifts for family and friends.
The day was even more special with the hands-on partnering with HOPE Family Services. Executive Director Laurel Lynch and Char Young from HOPE, provided help selling Split the Pot tickets. The club sold over $2000 in raffle tickets and centerpiece raffles and raffled off ten $100 prizes.
Event chair, Julia Dennis, did a fabulous job and her great organizational skills ensured a fun-filled and successful fundraiser for our adopted charities and a lovely holiday celebration to culminate a wonderful year for the LWRWC.
Wishing all of you and your families the happiest of holiday seasons and a very Happy and Healthy New Year!
