The April meeting of the Women of the Western Communities will be held Thursday, April 7 at the Wanderers Club in Wellington. A meet-and-mingle will start at 6 p.m. Arrive by 6:30 p.m. to check in and be seated.
The program will feature guest speaker Dave O’Keefe, a Royal Palm Beach resident and business owner who was recently seen on the TV show Fit to Fat to Fit, in which he lost more than 100 pounds. O’Keefe will be speaking about his experiences losing the weight and how he has managed to keep it off. It is an inspiring story of challenges and struggles, followed by victory.
The monthly donation for Harmony House will be small gifts for the children to give their mothers on Mother’s Day. Some examples would be costume jewelry, lotions, beauty items, colognes or small purses. The children who reside at Harmony House have no way to purchase gifts for Mother’s Day, so this would be very much appreciated. RSVP for the meeting no later than Saturday, April 2. The guest fee is $30, payable by cash, check or credit card.
The club’s spring fundraiser “Sail Into Fashion” will be held Sunday, May 1 at the Wanderers Club, and will include a brunch, fashion show and auction. Fashions will be provided by Dress Barn. Tickets to the fundraiser are $50 for guests, paid in advance. Reservations are required. There will be no tickets sold at the door on the day of the event.
The board is accepting donated items for silent and Chinese auctions at the May fundraiser. Donations can be brought to the April meeting. Possible donated items could include: gift cards, candles, purses, fashion items, home decor, housewares, kitchen gadgets, wine, jewelry, books, cookbooks and more. Make sure that donations are clean and in new or extremely good condition. If you have the original box and directions, include them.
