Sheila installed the newly elected board by presenting them with hats
designating their office. The “hat” theme was also carried out in the table
decorations. Marianne and Gail presented Dianne with a couple of treasures
from our storage unit as well as a gift card to Rogers Gardens as a thank you
from the Guild for a job well done. (Missing: Peggy Miller)
HAVANA NIGHTS

Kudos to Gail and Marianne for a beautifully orchestrated event. From the
antique car, Latin Jazz Band, cigar rollers, wine grab, clever posters to
donate to the recurring needs like CHOC bears and action figures to the fantastic array of
auction items, every detail was covered. A couple spoke so positively about their
experience with CHOC during the birth of their twins and the weather was perfect, too!
