Hospital guild organizing

'Springtime in Paris' event

French fashions will enhance the European ambience of the fund-raising

luncheon planned by Providence St. Joseph Medical Center Guild on

Saturday, May 4, at the Sheraton Universal Hotel.

"Springtime in Paris" is the title for the event at which producer

Carin Holmenas returns with a new show featuring women's styles from the


elegant Paris Boutique of Brentwood and the newest in men's fashions from

Sy Devore.

There will be a special $10,000 drawing with only 250 tickets sold.

The tickets are $100 each and can be purchased in advance in the medical

center Gift Gallery or at the event.

This annual luncheon and fashion show, the guild's spring event, is

the group's major fund-raiser. Proceeds go to the guild's $1 million

pledge to the medical center's Emergency Room and the Pediatric After

Hours Clinic (PARC).

A boutique featuring pewter picture frames and bowls as well as

jewelry, lingerie, handbags and stationery will be offered.

Donna Mahoney, guild president and spring event director, welcomes the

community to attend. For reservations, call 846-2177.

La Providencia Guild

creating 2003 Cookbook

La Providencia Guild is preparing a new cookbook as a fund-raiser. The

committee is including recipes from current members who still reside

locally and those have relocated.

The committee needs many recipes and hopes that everyone who enjoyed

belonging to the guild will give generously to this worthy cause.

Publication and sales of the cookbook are scheduled for the early part

of 2003, so recipes need to be submitted as soon as possible. The

deadline is June 15, but the committee is hoping to receive them sooner.

Proceeds from the cookbook will go to Childrens Hospital Los Angeles,

the group's philanthropy.

For more information, call Charlene Dettmann at 845-6992.
