Love was in the air, Feb. 10, when the Children’s Diabetes Foundation Guild had its Membership Tea at the Madden Museum of Art.
Guild President Dalya Creaghe loved the turnout, 73 women, many new to the guild, thanks to loyal long-term members who brought guests.
Jamie Angelich won the honor of bringing the most guests, a tableful.
One bit of news that brought gasps of joy was the announcement that the Jewels for Hope made a whopping $40,000 last year, part of the $250,000 the jewelry resale program has made to date. Women donate genuine and costume jewelry to CDF, which is then appraised and sold at the Brass Ring Luncheon and other CDF events throughout the year. It’s a bauble bargain recycling frenzy benefitting the Type I diabetic children served every year at the Barbara Davis Center. No children are turned away for lack of ability to pay.
The Brass Ring Luncheon drew more than 800 guests last year and the 2014 luncheon is slated for Nov. 6.
Among tea (and coffee) sippers were CDF Golf Tournament chair, Tangy Buchanan, Barbara Feeney, Betsey Fuller, Auna Jornayvaz, Jane Kranich, Barbara Lea, Pat Lansing, Shelley Lucas, Louise Richardson, Susan Squyer, Lori Visciano, Jody Phelps, Christy Alberts, Bea Bugelli, Judy Chiodo, Gail Haddad and Ellie Ludvigsen.
