Back again from Countryside Floral and Garden, renowned florist and visionary extraordinaire, Jon Robert Throne, a true creative artist in design, quite colorfully presented the March Luncheon Program.
Trends he loves are organic wood containers and messy, overgrown greens with textural pops of color. A trend he doesn’t love so much is masala, the color of the year. Gold is back! Copper is coming!
A nostalgic vintage fashion show hosted by Lynn Gough, “Memories in Black and White,” highlighted the April Luncheon.
“The Vendor Show,” featuring local businesses, will be a fun opportunity to browse and shop at the final luncheon on May 20.
The last Social event until fall is a day trip to La Conner where the art galleries, shops, and restaurants can be devoured all afternoon.
Inspiring Glassybaby founder and cancer survivor, Lee Rhodes, is the eloquent featured speaker at the annual YWCA fundraiser, The Inspire Luncheon, on May 7 at Everett’s Xfinity Arena.
This extraordinary and truly inspirational event supports the YWCA’s mission of empowering women of all ages, races, and faiths and enables critical services to promote self-sufficiency, reduce violence, and eliminate racism.
Mill Creek Women’s Club continues their ongoing commitment to those efforts through their own auctions, raffles, donations, volunteering, and attendance at The Inspire Luncheon.
