Get ready for a totally revamped November party formerly known as the Fall Frolic/Royal Ride! This year's party will be emphasizing entertainment. We have already retained a major, professional entertainer who will be performing for us that evening. We will still have raffles and the auction, but we will be compressing time spent on these activities.
With apologies to the turkey dinner lovers, there will be two new dining choices this year for your enjoyment.
We will also be projecting a 1920s/art deco feel for the evening through table settings and lighting and hope that you will enjoy the new look and feel.
If you had stopped attending or never attended this event, please give it a try. It promises to be very different, very lively and very entertaining. Both Foundation members and non-members are invited, so please mark your calendar now for November 15 and join us for a truly "fun" evening.
Spectators enjoy watching the Celebrity putting contest which is always a favorite. The Celebrity Golf Classic, the primary fund raiser for the Foundation, matches celebrity players from professional sports with foursomes at the Plantation Golf and Country Club. A meet-and-greet dinner, luncheon and gala dinner after golf are part of this event. The Classic celebrated its twenty-sixth year in 2018.
The Classic is scheduled for February 6th & 7th, 2019. Call the Foundation Office or contact Ron Noble or Dick Butler to volunteer for our most popular event.
The 2019 Spring Fashion Show, “This Could be the Start of Something New" "A Garden Party & Fashion Show" will feature fashions from several local shops.
This event is sold out every year and is a major fund raiser for the Foundation. Don't hesitate to gather your friends this year. The fashion show will have a new look and lots of surprises.
Contact Dorothy at the PCF Office or Donna Kubik, Fashion Show Chairperson, to volunteer or make a donation.
Foundation members enjoy a cruise and dinner. Something Different Is a generous array of parties: dinners, concerts, tours, lessons, competitions, and who knows what! You will find a tempting menu of the unusual as well as familiar occasions and locations with all proceeds going to the Foundation.
