Gainesville Phoenix Woman’s Club 3rd Annual Luncheon
Benefitting the For Her Glory Foundation,
Georgia First Lady, Sandra Deal, Guest Speaker

Sandra Deal & Jackie CooleyThe Gainesville Phoenix Woman’s Club hosted their 3rd annual luncheon on August 13, 2011 with proceeds going to For Her Glory.  Featured speaker, “First Lady Sandra Deal was the second president of the Phoenix Society, the first being former school Principal Shirley Whitaker," said Connie Howard-Propes, a charter member of the original group.

Cancer survivor and Women's Club third vice president Brenda Martin said the club hoped to raise $3,000 at their third annual event.  “There are a lot of women who are cancer survivors including myself,” she said. “When you go through chemo and you lose your hair or you lose your breasts you sometimes don’t feel like a woman. That wig can make you feel like a lady again, and that’s why we do this, to help these ladies get their dignity back.”

The Phoenix ladies have come up with a unique way to cut costs for their fundraiser luncheon that benefits For Her Glory. Instead of paying extra for decorations, they let their club members take care of those details.  "Each year, women in our club host a table of 8 ladies and may choose a theme for their table," said Renette Todd, Phoenix president.  "Each hostess may decorate her table according to the theme she chooses. We have had several beach-themed tables, a Christmas-themed table and even a 1950s ladies-who-lunch-themed table where every guest wore a hat, gloves and pearls.

The event is always a huge success and a fun time for all!
