Silk Purse Fashion Show at FCAC Tea

In addition, the 2016 Fountain City Art Center Summer Rose Tea will feature a fashion show by Judy Gardner of the Silk Purse and LeGrand Music Studio will provide guitar music. The Teas always feature incredible desserts and sandwiches made by Art Center members. Photo submitted.

Men and women both are invited to attend; RSVPs are due one week ahead, $25 per person. There will be traditional awards for the “Best Hat” and the “Best Decorated Table.” Young people may attend, but be sure the child is at least 8 years old and is comfortable sitting at a table for an hour or more. Wear nice summer clothes, not jeans and t-shirts, please. Hats are encouraged, but they are optional.

There will be a small selection of Silent Auction items; credit cards will be accepted.

Please contact Sylvia Williams now if you would like to decorate a table or if you would like to reserve a table for you and your guests, $150 for a table of six. (Email the Director to make reservations, to volunteer for table decorating, to donate auction items, or to ask questions: fcartcenter@knology.net; (865)357-2787.)
