Holiday Luncheon

This year's Holiday Luncheon will feature the wit and wisdom of Mark Hinson, longtime Tallahassee Democrat entertainment writer and columnist.

Mr. Hinson will be bringing several copies of Gerald Ensley's book, We Found Paradise, for sale for $25.00 cash each, tax included.

We will also have our annual "Fun'raiser." which is a "ticket auction" for gifts that you donate.

The auction works as follows: For a $10 donation to LWVT, you'll receive 20 tickets. Each gift will have a container for the tickets in front of it. For each gift you would like, put any Gifts number of your tickets in that gift's container. You may distribute your tickets in any way you wish: all tickets in one container, one ticket each in 20 containers, or anything in between!

To donate a gift, please bring a gift no later than 10:45 a.m. that costs no more than $20. During the luncheon, a ticket will be drawn from each item's container and the winner's name will be written on the card identifying the item.

And one more thing: The names of several lucky winners of a poinsettia will be drawn from a pool of everyone who made a reservation by noon on day of the deadline, December 12.

Date: Saturday, December 15

Time: 11:00 a.m. --1:00 p.m.

Location: Four Points by Sheraton

316 West Tennessee Street

FOR RESERVATIONS please call 309-3005 and leave a message or email LWVTallahassee@gmail.com.

Because the League must pay for reservations cancelled after Wednesday, December 12, those who cancel late must reimburse the League for the cost of their reservations or find someone to take their places at the Holiday Luncheon.
