“3rd Annual Girls, Pearls, Hats & Heels” Is Bigger & Better Than Ever!
The Delray Beach Public Library’s 3rd Annual “Girls, Pearls, Hats & Heels,” recently took place at the Delray Beach Club and was a huge success.
This fun-filled afternoon of shopping for the latest fashions in shoes and accessories from top designers of 2014, took place in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. More than 280 women put on their pearls, favorite hats and pink dresses and shopped from the heart!
The Chairpersons for this popular event were active community leaders and sister-in-laws, Nancy Dockerty, Library Board President, and Caron Dockerty. The Honorary Chairperson was
Kate Toomey, an involved community leader, and breast cancer survivor. The proceeds benefited the Delray Beach Public Library and the Bethesda Hospital Foundation.
The Hat Sponsors, who were the major sponsors of this event, have shown their support of the Library and their recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month with their generosity. They were: The Edward W. Toomey Family, Tauriello & Company Real Estate, Inc., National Pain Institute, and GL Homes.
The Library also appreciates the many Heel Sponsors: Floridian Community Bank, Posh Properties, Bank United, Beaulieu Law Group, Moroco Orthodontics, Kim Beaumont, Allstate, Merrill Lynch, MorseLife, and Paradise Bank, as well, for their continued support.
