High Heels and High Tea Luncheon and Fashion Show ~ 2017
I would like to thank everyone who supported the CFRW High Heels and High Tea Luncheon and Fashion Show with your attendance and your auction purchases. All proceeds will go toward our continuing support of Republican candidates, Republican causes, and our scholarship fund and community outreach programs.
We were pleased to have State Representative Gary Elkins participate in the event by delivering the invocation and Kelli Ray as our talented solo performer. I would like to thank Railroad Commissioner Ryan Sitton and State Representative Sarah Davis for taking time out of their schedules to join us as our Guest Speakers. Darcy Mingoia and State Representative Dwayne Bohac honored us with leading the Pledges. Appreciation goes to State Representatives Tom Oliverson and Kevin Roberts for conducting the Live Auction portion of the day. We are grateful to all of these busy people for sharing their time with us.
As event co-coordinator, I would like to acknowledge the many committee members who gave their time and talent over the last several weeks to make it all possible. Thank you to: Decorations – Alice Gullett, Chair; Fashion Show – Jan Ott, Co-chair, Rita Parrish, Co-chair; Registration/Greeting – Suzanne Davis, Chair; Table Sponsors – Joy Gregory, Chair; Ticket Sales – Suzanne Davis, Chair; Vendors – Nancy Roberts, Chair; and Ticket and Program Design and Printing and Auction – Edith Gibson. I must give special appreciation and acknowledgement to our Treasurer, Micheline Hutson, for handling the mammoth task of processing the financial obligation of payments and receipts for this event.
I would like to extend a very special appreciation to our generous Table Sponsors. Darcy Mingoia, President of the Cy-Fair ISD Board of Trustees, purchased a Superior Level Table as did Barbara Buxton, CFRW President. CFRW members Jan Ott and Rita Parrish joined with Carolyn Hodges, past President of TFRW, in purchasing a Preferred Level Table. Additionally, we were honored to have the support of State Representative Tom Oliverson for sponsoring at the Elite Level.
We are pleased to further acknowledge our models: Anya Lucas, Melissa Rothholz, Jennifer Oliverson, Kim Bailey, Carolyn Hodges, Hollie Roberts, Larissa Plunto, Colleen Gilbert, Representative Tom Oliverson, Representative Kevin Roberts, and Representative Dwayne Bohac. We appreciate Scruples Boutique and JoS. A. Bank for supplying the fashions. Jan Ott and Rita Parrish presented the fashion show with great organizational prowess in directing the models down the runway. The models were radiant and walked the “catwalk” with charm, grace, and elegance. (But they also looked like they were having a lot of fun!)
We appreciate the support of everyone who contributed to the success of this fundraising effort by contributing items to our Silent and Live Auctions as well as those who purchased ads in the event program. Last, but not least, we would like to recognize Commissioner Jack Cagle and The Honorable Patricia Harless for their generous contributions. We also thank all the participants of our Vendor Showcase who added another element to Cy-Fair RW’s High Heels and High Tea Luncheon and Fashion Show.
