Holiday Prelude XXXII

Festive celebration generates funds for Phoenix Theatre Guild, Phoenix Youth Symphony

The holiday tradition that is Holiday Prelude has welcomed guests for 32 years. Many return year after year to kick off the season with shopping, music, a luncheon and fashion. This year, 539 guests joined the celebration at the JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Inn & Spa on Dec. 8.

Sandy Lozier and her daughter, Sabrina Walters, have attended Holiday Prelude together for at least 25 years.

In addition to shopping the 23 festive boutiques – which featured items from home-baked goods to ornaments and decorations, clothing and accessories – attendees were treated to a plated luncheon and a runway show featuring the vintage couture of Fashion by Robert Black, Ella Zahlan’s Couture Collection Spring 2018 and Jewels by Alan Anderson. Winners of the extensive array of raffle items were drawn throughout the afternoon.

Brandon Lee, 3TV evening anchor, emceed the occasion. Janet Richter and Pat MacGillivray chaired the luncheon, with Jane Evans and Cora Kolkhorst as their co-chairs.

Funds raised at Holiday Prelude support Phoenix Theatre Guild and the Phoenix Youth Symphony.
