HSGB’s Ladies Luncheon 'Potcake Paparazzi' a glittering success
FREEPORT, Grand Bahama -- On Saturday January 22nd, women of the Grand Bahama community came out to show their support for the Humane Society of Grand Bahama at their annual Ladies Luncheon under the theme “Potcake Paparazzi” which was held at the home of one of the ladies.
The ladies came out in full force, dawning beautiful outfits to walk the red carpet as they approached the beautiful home. As the ladies approached their photos were snapped by the “paparazzi” and were greeted with a delicious glass of “Paparazzi Punch”. When they proceeded inside they were welcomed by the musical talents of Alex Romanenko who played the beautiful black grand piano with a variety of classical favorites for the ladies to enjoy. The tables were decorated with a black, gold and red theme, wine glasses, and beautiful floral centerpieces that were made and donated by Susan Chamberland Taylor.
Before sitting down to lunch, the ladies viewed the vast array of beautiful items that were included in the Chinese Raffle and were able to choose which one of the items that wanted to purchase a raffle ticket for. The items included two pieces of jewelry donated by Caraline Anderson, a Mulberry Bag from Top Notch donated by Victoria Ferguson, Massage from Susan Jensen Sweeting, Facial at La Spa donated by Tina, Glass Blown Conch Shell donated by Sydney (the glass blower) Rolle, Manicure/Pedicure donated Monique, Miniature Painting donated by Ivy Elden and several jewelry pieces including necklaces and earrings donated by Barb Stollery.
The ladies then sat down and were served a beautiful and delectable lunch prepared by Michael and Sherry Higgs of As You Like It Catering. While enjoying their food and wine, Javan Hunt and Tony Lowe serenaded the ladies with their song selections.
After lunch the ladies then proceeded outside to the lawn where Julia Geiger performed her Black Bird dance number and also enjoyed a game of Heads or Tails, where the ladies were able to compete in the game to win a Pearl Necklace & Bracelet before the afternoon ended. It was a great time to be had by all that were in attendance for our four legged friends.
Before the luncheon ended, Tip Burrows the Executive Director for the Humane Society, thanked the ladies for their support and gave special thanks to all of those that helped to make this year’s ladies luncheon a success. The HSGB would like to thank Bristol Wines & Spirits, Butler’s Specialty, Erykah Rolle for the event photography, Michael and Sherry Higgs, The Welch’s and everyone that helped and came out to support to the HSGB.
