“Girls, Pearls, Hats & Heels” A Huge Success!

The Delray Beach Public Library announced “Girls, Pearls, Hats & Heels,” (in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month) was a very special Centennial event and a great success. The fun-filled, afternoon of shopping the latest fashions in shoes and accessories, from top local designers, was co-sponsored by the Delray Beach Public Library, the Bethesda Hospital Foundation, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Powderblu Salon & Spa. The day featured a spectacular buffet lunch, at the recently refurbished Delray Dunes Country Club, and complimentary bubbly flowed all afternoon. This trunk show included many wonderful local stores and vendors, and women shopped at their leisure all day long. There were also many outstanding raffle prizes and silent auction items to be won by more than 166 attendees. The proceeds will benefit the Delray Beach Public Library and the Bethesda Hospital Foundation for breast cancer treatment, and educational programs. More than $6,500 was raised.
