The 30th Annual Magnolias and White Linen Luncheon

Co-Chairs for MWL 2016 are Kat Davis and Connie Crosby
Magnolias and White Linen
 30th  Anniversary    
March 2, 2016

Smiles and laughter filled the room at New World Landing when author, Mary Kay Andrews, spoke at the 30th Annual Magnolias and White Linen Luncheon. The event was co-chaired by Kat Davis and Connie Crosby. Connie chaired the first Magnolias in 1986, and it has remained the Pensacola Symphony Orchestra Guild’s largest fundraiser since that time. Beautiful floral arrangements designed by Sue-Sue Sherrill and the decorating team filled the room, the entrance, and the tables. There was amazing artwork, jewelry, and other items to bid on at the Silent Auction tables. In addition to selling Mary Kay’s books, we also had exquisite pearl bracelets with a gold or silver charm on them to mark the occasion. We still have some of the bracelets and they will be available at the April meeting, or you can call Connie Crosby. Kim Lien collected some wonderful door prizes for us this year and everyone enjoys winning something. This is the culmination of six months of work and planning by lots of people and the Guild and the Orchestra appreciates every one of them.
