Holiday Prelude XXX benefits local arts organizations

 

Holiday Prelude XXX Luncheon and Fashion Show at The Phoenician Resort celebrated the holidays with a festive array of boutiques, elegant lunch menu, charming centerpieces, exciting raffle prizes and fabulous fashions.

The theme this year was “Gifts of the Season,” which was reflected in the beautiful centerpieces. Fashions presented on the runway included Evans Furs, Galina Couture, Femme and Babette shops at Gainey Village, Dolce at Hilton Village and Dillard’s Paradise Valley Mall.

Chair Sabrina Walters, along with co-chairs Jane Evans, Michele Coombs and Debe Harvey, and a dedicated committee created a memorable event. Ms. Walters said, “The Holiday Prelude was fun, and what a way to kick off the Holiday season.”

The ballroom was beautiful with guests dressed in their holiday best. Mistress of Ceremony Emma Jade, anchor and reporter with 12 News and 12 Weekend Today, welcomed guests and talked about the importance of our treasured cultural organizations.

Funds raised at Holiday Prelude XXX by Phoenix Art Museum League, Phoenix Theatre Guild and Phoenix Youth Symphony will be shared equally by all three organizations. Sponsors for the event were Cancer Treatment Centers of America, Kathleen Duyck, Street Rods by Auto Art, SLW Realty Group and The Joint Chiropractic of Paradise Valley and Arcadia.

Next year’s Holiday Prelude XXXI will be Friday, Dec. 2, 2016.
