The latest Power Hat, "Georgiana," (photos below, at end of this post) has been finished and delivered to CAPTAIN CHS, and will be offered on silent auction at the "Unbridled Affair" Gala July 22nd. There will be an opportunity for everyone and anyone who is interested to make a bid prior to the event via the online catalog, so I'll post a link here as soon as I have one.
Opening Day at the races is ONE WEEK away! After last year off due to Covid, everyone is ready to dress up and get out! Do you know it is GOOD LUCK to wear a hat to the races? Why not take a chance and place a bid on a Power Hat? These are all specially made for each participating Non Profit organization to auction or raffle, and are not going to be made available elsewhere. Who knows? You may end up winning a fabulous one-of-a-kind couture hat or fascinator! If you win at a less than retail bid, or by overly generous bid, you'll be doing a world of good either way!
While I am on the subject of online bidding, I have a link to share with anyone who might like to own "With a Blush," that champagne-y peach-y pinky fascinator (well, "hatinator" really) I featured in my previous blog post. There are plenty of really great items on Saratoga Bridges' auction block, and you don't need to attend the party on 7/17 to join in the fun. Take a peek at "With a Blush" on display here and see all the fun items here Please share the links! Let's everyone bid generously to help Saratoga Bridges with all the good work they do for our community. As always, thanks to all who are following along with my progress on The Power hat Project.......
