Safe Harbor to hold fundraising luncheon

Some might say a decorated table at the Safe Harbor Tablescapes Luncheon is just a decorated table.

However, others might say one decorated table is one child’s future.

Safe Harbor will be hosting its third annual Tablescapes Luncheon on Sept. 15 at 12 p.m. at the Wendell Mitchell Conference Center at Lurleen B. Wallace Community College in an effort to raise money and awareness for the Butler County Children’s Advocacy Center.

Twenty tables that will display a variety of different tables settings will line the floor, and Emily’s Café & Gourmet Coffee will provide lunch.

“Each table has a theme, ranging from the simple to the exquisite, each beautiful in their own way,” said Sara Jean Atkins, the event’s chairperson. “The decorations are made from a variety of objects; some found in any kitchen and some carefully selected items. The tables will be fashioned by ladies from all around the community.”

Each table will be judged and a first place, second place and third place winner will be selected.
There will also be a drawing for the Lighthouse Quilt along with one individual being selected from each table to win a door prize.

This year will also feature a silent auction with a large number of items and live music will be provided by Roness Fail an Michael Rodgers.

“Special thanks to all the sponsors that have donated to this event,” Safe Harbor Director Kathy Smyth said. “We also appreciate all of the businesses and individuals that have given generous gifts for the door prizes and silent auction items. Thanks to all of you for your support and helping make the difference in the life of a child.”

Tickets for the luncheon are $20 each and tickets for the quilt are $1.

Tickets for the luncheon must be purchased ahead of time but the tickets for the quilt can be purchased the day of the event.

“We are so excited about our Tablescapes Luncheon,” Atkins said. “Even though it’s a busy time of the year, we would like to invite those that don’t already have plans, to come out and see what creative and talented ladies we have here in Greenville and the surrounding area.”
