Silver Bells Luncheon
2013 Silver Bells Luncheon Highlights!
Thank you to all who attended the Silver Bells Luncheon as part of the Providence O'Christmas Trees Three Day Celebration! The luncheon was a smashing success and fun for everyone involved.
Guests had the opportunity to enter a gift drawing for only $50 for the chance to win one of three luxurious prizes. Prizes were a Seattle Shopping and Overnight Package, including $500 to Pacific Place, an overnight at the Four Seasons, dinner for two at the "Chef in the Hat's" new restaurant Loulay Kitchen & Bar, and two annual passes to the Seattle Art Museum. Another prize was a 2014 O'Christmas Trees All Access pass with two passes to all 2014 events and an overnight at The Westin. Finally, guests had the chance to win a Designer Accessory Package that included an accessory from each designer that participated in the Silver Bells Luncheon Fashion Show.
The morning started off with shopping in our lobby boutique shops, hosted by The Finerie, where guests could get gifts for everyone on their list. Shops included The Finerie, Trina Pierre, Namiko Abloom Jewelry and Luminita Jewelry by Design.
Emcee, Dick Foley, welcomed guests and introduced Co-chairs Duell Fisher and Liza Ragan to kick off the program. Duell and Liza highlighted the Presenting Artist, Experience Hendrix - A Tribute to Jimi, and noted that there would be touches of Jimi throughout the program, including the Fashion Show featuring Providence Senior and Community Services beneficiaries.
We were so fortunate to have Seattle fashion designers Trina Pierre, Erin Roby and Carole McClellan partner with us for the Fashion Show. Each designer was paired with two Providence residents and one "Friend of Providence," and the designers made custom clothing for the residents to wear in the fashion show and keep as a gift after the luncheon. The residents
strutted their stuff down the runway to Jimi Hendrix classics like "Foxey Lady." The crowed cheered and loved that the people who directly benefit from the generous donations of Providence O'Christmas Trees were featured. The fashions these three designers created were absolutely fabulous and showcased their amazing talents. Thank you Trina, Erin, and Carole!
After the Fashion Show, Supportive Housing Director, Tim Zaricznyj gave a moving ask to support the ministries of Providence Senior and Community Services; and Michael Powers entertained the crowd with a rousing acoustic set of Jimi Hendrix tunes.
Thank you, again, to everyone who attended the Silver Bells Luncheon. Please save the date for next year - Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014.
