The planning committee is seeking donations to help fill the themed gift baskets to be raffled off on February 12. Desirable items might include handmade crafts and jewelry, chocolates or other specialty foods, plants, clothing accessories, spa items or wine and wine glasses. Gift certificates from stores like Crate and Barrel, Pottery Barn, Chico’s, Barnes and Noble or restaurants make good raffle items. Empty baskets are also needed.

Starting off the festivities, ladies will be able to purchase raffle tickets, view raffle prizes and shop at Rose’s Fashions Boutique from 10:00 until 11:15 a.m. The cash bar will feature a special red daiquiri cocktail. Red and Purple are the colors for the day. Purple is the color that represents all cancers.

Lunch will be served at 11:30 a.m. The luncheon menu will be Chicken Florentine with rice, seasoned squash, and white chocolate mousse topped with red-frosted cookie. Then Rose’s Fashions of Green Valley is sure to delight the audience with a fashion show featuring all the newest looks and colors. The Women of Quail Creek models will grace the runway parading in outfits to demonstrate stylish ways to wear and accessorize the clothing.
