Women enjoy various decorated tables and a silent auction over lunch as part of Hannah Home Shelby and King’s Home Shelby’s annual Tablescapes luncheon.
The Hannah Home Shelby Auxiliary will host its annual Tablescapes luncheon on Wednesday, April 6 at the Metro Church of God, 2800 Metropolitan Way. This is the largest fundraiser of the year, with proceeds benefiting Hannah Home Shelby and Kings Home Shelby
Patricia Barnes, founder and CEO of Sister Schubert’s baking company and a resident of Andalusia, Alabama, will be featured as the keynote speaker. She will also have copies of her new memoir cookbook, “Celebrations of the Heart,” for sale and signing.
Barnes serves on the Board of Directors of the Alabama Women’s Hall of Fame, is a Visiting Executive in the Lowder School of Business at Auburn University, and is a member of the Women’s Philanthropy Board and the Dean’s Board of School of Human Sciences. She is also president of the Barnes Family Foundation.
Janie Dollar, president of the 2016-2017 Hannah Home Shelby Auxiliary, said Schubert will share her testimony and believes it will be one that’s inspirational, especially for the women from the Hannah Home that will be in attendance.
The event opens at 10 a.m. to view the tablescapes and bid on silent auction items, which have been expanded this year. Dollar said there are usually 25 to 30 different designers and local stores designing tables. As part of the fundraising effort, guests can vote for their favorite tablescape with a contribution, and the one with the most votes wins.
A catered lunch will be served at noon for the upwards of 275 guests.
“That helps us not only build our membership base, but helps us to get volunteers to go out to homes and work with the women and children,” Dollar said.
Tickets will be available at the door at $40 per person, but reservations are recommended. To reserve a seat or for more information, contact Mary Saggus at firstname.lastname@example.org.
