More than 600 Women Supported Little Company of Mary’s 8th Annual “In Good Company” Fundraiser
Little Company of Mary Auxiliary hosted the 8th annual “In Good Company” premier shopping event at the Ridge Country Club on Thursday, April 10, 2014. More than 600 women joined us for a serene “Garden” themed evening, filled with trendy shopping, fine wine, pastries, French delicacies, raffles, friends, and one-of-a-kind finds! Little Company of Mary’s own Dr. David Roth, Anesthesiologist, played classical music on the piano throughout the event.
The shopping commenced at 4:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. The new venue-Ridge Country Club was decorated in a colorful array of flowers and garden inspired trinkets. Shoppers enjoyed timeless classical music while admiring the breath taking rows of spring and early summer blooms. More than 50 vendors filled the Ridge Country Club with original and hand made crafts, stunning outfits, paintings, jewelry, accessories, and delicious culinary finds. Every shopper received a complimentary signature In Good Company tote bag. Little Company of Mary’s signature bag has become a yearly staple and a must have for all shoppers. It wasn’t too long into the evening to see the bags filled up with unique and trendy finds.
Exquisite raffle baskets featured items such as fine wines, elegant jewelry, American Girl Doll, exotic orchids, original paintings and more.
