Little Company of Mary Auxiliary hosted the 9th annual In Good Company Garden Party premier shopping event, Let’s Go Fly a Kite, at the Ridge Country Club on Thursday, April 16, 2015. More than 500 women joined us for a serene “Garden” themed evening, filled with trendy shopping, fine wine, pastries, French delicacies, raffles, friends, and one-of-a-kind finds!
The shopping commenced at 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Ridge Country Club was decorated in a colorful array of beautiful spring kites. More than 40 vendors filled the Ridge Country Club with original and hand made crafts, stunning outfits, paintings, jewelry, accessories, and delicious culinary finds. Every shopper received a complimentary signature In Good Company tote bag. Little Company of Mary Hospital’s signature bag has become a yearly staple and a must have for all shoppers. It wasn’t too long into the evening to see the bags filled up with unique and trendy finds.
Exquisite raffle baskets featured items such as fine wine, elegant jewelry, American Girl Doll, exotic orchids, original paintings and more. Grand raffle winners included Marci Batsakis, who won two Southwest Airlines tickets; Lisa DiMarco, who won a Parisian Wrought Iron Wine Rack with 25 premium bottle of wine; Nancy Mulcahy and Carol Moriarty, who won the “Weekend Package,” which consists of a complimentary night at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Chicago-Alsip with brunch and $100 gift certificate to Mia Francesca; and Mary Shields, who won Chicago Cubs baseball tickets.
The “In Good Company” Garden Party event offered premier shopping, trendy and chic finds, delicious food stations, drinks, and friends. Most importantly, this fun-filled evening raised funds that will benefit the Mission-Driven Services for Little Company of Mary Hospital.
