Beaverton Area Ladies' Luncheon Held to Benefit the Beaverton Rural Schools Endowment Fund

Joan CashinOn Saturday, October 29th nearly 100 ladies from the Beaverton Area gathered to have lunch and raise money for a good cause.  This event was held at the Beaverton Community Center and raised over $1,000 for the Beaverton Rural School Endowment Fund.  When fully established, the Endowment Fund will be used to provide additional educational experiences, which go beyond those provided by the District’s operating budget, for students in kindergarten through 12th grade.  The Endowment Fund is under the direction of the Midland Area Community Foundation.

Using their creativity, the décor for the event was provided by each table sponsor who decorated their luncheon table with a theme of their choice.   This year’s themes included:  Autumn, Halloween, Christmas, Snowmen, English Tea Party, Victorian, Hollywood, Social Butterflies, Painting, and Beautiful Things for Beautiful Ladies.  Those serving as table sponsors were:  Kris Phillips, Dawn Swartzmiller, Joyce Swartzmiller, Pam Cingano, Joan Cashin, Carol Goerge, Carla Haggart, Sonja Loose, Missy Pohlman, Jane Smith, Judy Oberloier, Sharon Clark, and Tracy Summers.  Each table looked unique and spectacular for the serving of a delicious catered luncheon.

A short program on “Fall Gardening Tips” was presented by horticulturalist, Audra Hynes.

Special thanks go to Brian Rowland and the Beaverton Lions Club for the use of the building; Lacie Curns and Chartwells for the delicious luncheon; and all of the table sponsors and those who attended.  The event was coordinated by Pam Cingano and Joan Cashin.
