Holiday Prelude XXXIII

Luncheon to benefit Phoenix Youth Symphony, Phoenix Theatre Guild draws 500-plus

Ready. Set. Shop. From jewelry and fashions to candles, olive oil and home-baked goodies, Holiday Prelude’s boutiques were the perfect place to kick off the holiday season Dec. 7. More than 500 guests attended the 33rd annual luncheon affair in the newly opened Paradise ballroom of the JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Inn. In addition to the 20-plus eclectic boutiques, the event featured a luncheon, raffles and plenty of holiday spirit. Escada presented a runway show, featuring the pre-spring 2019 collection.

Jane P. Evans and Judy Peel, representing Phoenix Youth Symphony, chaired the event, and Debe Harvey, representing Phoenix Theatre Guild, served as co-chair. Funds raised are shared equally by the two organizations.
