More than 1,100 guests attended The Board of Visitors 64th Annual Fashion Show Luncheon on Dec. 16 at the Arizona Biltmore. The 2019 Flowers Girls, grandchildren of BOV members escorted by their grandfathers and professional models wore fashions from Dillard’s on the runway. Margaret Beardsley and Kelly Sifferman co-chaired the annual classic, which has become a family tradition for many.
Proceeds from the Fashion Show Luncheon benefit the community health-care needs of women, children and the elderly. In 2017, The Board of Visitors donated $762,000 to local charities, including The Board of Visitors Ryan House, Maggie’s Place, Phoenix Rescue Mission and Barrow Neurological Foundation.
The 2017 Flower Girls will be presented at the 103rd Annual Charity Ball on April 7 at the JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Inn.
The Board of Visitors was established in 1908 and is the oldest charitable organization in Arizona. The organization has granted more than $19 million to local nonprofit organizations in the greater Phoenix area.
