Shop, eat, be merry while helping Scottsdale children

Enjoy a day of friends, food and fashion at this annual holiday event.

A tradition for so many, the Visions of Sugarplums holiday luncheon, boutique and fashion show kicks off the holiday season beginning at 9:30 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 23 at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess Resort.

Proceeds from this event have enabled the Auxiliary of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale to contribute over $1.5 million dollars to the Clubs and scholarship recipients over the years.

Come early to shop for a great cause and browse through the boutique for designer décor, vintage treasures, gourmet foods, handcrafted items and gift baskets. Meander through the lavish silent auction, then relax and enjoy an elegant luncheon, live auction and fashion show. This marks the 35th year of this popular event and all proceeds benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale, according to a press release.

Guest speaker Casey Figurski 22-years-old and recipient of the Auxiliary Scholarship four years in a row, will speak at the luncheon about the impact the Clubs have had on her life. Ms. Figurski began attending the Boys and Girls Clubs when she was in second grade.

“It was a great place to grow up and have strong, positive role models and mentors,” stated Ms. Figurski in the release.

She graduated Summa Cum Laude from ASU in May 2015 and is thankful to the Auxiliary and Clubs for the opportunities they have given her. She studied Family and Human Development and has a certificate in Child Life.
