Beyond the Red Door Lunch

For the past seven years I've had the privilege of providing the entertainment for the annual Fundango 5K Indoor Walk and Family Carnival. On March 7th over 100 volunteers and 1,500 supporters walked, chatted and twisted their way into raising almost $50,000 in donations in order to keep the Red Door program open and local Gilda's Club Running.

In just a few weeks on April 29th Gilda's Club will be hosting another fundraiser and awareness event called Beyond the Red Door Lunch.  In an effort to offer our support we will be creating floral centerpieces for the event.  A beautiful black magic rose submerged in a cylinder vase along with black river rock and lily grass will add a simple yet elegant touch to the event. 

Beyond the Red Door Lunch is free community luncheon that provides a fun, relaxed environment for people to discuss the mission of Gilda's Club and ways to help families living with cancer. The event will be held at the Frederick Meijer Gardens from 12-1 on April 29th and I encourage all of you to get involved.
