Grand View League, a volunteer fundraising branch of the American Cancer Society is hosting its 2017 Design & Discovery… dedicated to a cure event on Wednesday, September 13th at La Rinconada Country Club in Los Gatos. The event will again feature the immensely popular raffle of beautiful tablescapes by local designers. Each designer will once again display their talent by showcasing their one-of-a-kind tablescape design. We are extremely pleased to welcome back designers Ann Cherry and Linda Floyd. We also extend a warm welcome to the designers joining us for the first time this year including Saratoga’s Charlie’s Home Fashions and Chelsea Court Design located in Los Gatos.
Guests will also have an opportunity to shop at some of their favorite boutiques from past years as well as several new boutiques. The on-site boutiques will be selling jewelry, clothing, beautifully gift wrapped scented candles, lounge wear and accessories. Each boutique will donate a portion of its sales to the American Cancer Society. During the sit down luncheon, master floral artist Kren Rasmussen of Bloomsters will demonstrate the creation of floral arrangements with accompanying instruction and perhaps divulge a few trade secrets! The demonstration will conclude with a raffle where winners will each take home one of Kren’s floral creations.
Guests will be updated on the Grand View League Research Funding Initiative which was launched last year.
As the afternoon draws to a close, guests will depart knowing they have supported an important cause and did so while enjoying the company of friends, new and old.
Grand View League has raised over $15 million in support of the Society in its cancer research and patient services efforts. There are now 47 Nobel Laureates among the Society’s funded researchers. This is a chance for us to reflect on our progress, but even more so to continue our efforts to lead the fight for a world without cancer.
