April 2016 President's message
First of all, I hope you had a wonderful Easter and I also wish you a very Happy Passover! I hope your holidays are always filled with love, laughter and good will!
It has been a month since our beautiful Red Carpet Event on El Paseo, but people are still talking about this amazing evening of glamour, festivity and fun. Wolfgang and Klaus Puck created a sumptuous menu from appetizers to desserts topping off the evening with a Gold wrapped chocolate Oscar. Warren Jones, and his team The Jones Group designed an elegant evening with stunning décor making every guest feel like stars!
Our sincere gratitude goes to Fred Fern and The Shops on El Paseo for their support and dedication to PSWIFT. Due to their generosity we made over $7,500.00 which benefits our operations, programs and community outreach.
We are most grateful!
We have some sensational events coming up in the near future. Please join us for the "When Voices Meet," screening on April 27th. This is a remarkable film about the beauty of
When Voices Meet: One Divided Country; One United Choir; One Courageous Journey. Please see additional information concerning the event later in this newsletter.
May is always a special time of year because we give out our scholarship dollars to those deserving schools and students in the arts and media departments. Please join us at beautiful Palmers Restaurant in La Quinta on May 18th from 5:30-7:30.
All new members who have joined this past year are invited to a tea that will be held on June 4th at DeAnn Lubell Ames' home catered by the Board of Directors. Thank you Deann! Another special thanks to Denise Dubarry Hay for hosting the Annual Books Pals Luncheon to thank and honor our BookPALS readers on April 23rd.
Please make sure to mark your calendars for these events.
Thank you for your continued support!
My best always,
