Shalom Hadassah

Doris Codkind, Publicity

Fall has arrived and with it we held our annual barbecue at the Halley Pool. A great day was had with terrific food and great friends.

Our next event is the ever popular Fun Fundraiser at the Phoenix Art Museum. Join us on Thursday, November 17 for a docent led tour at 11:00 a.m. of the Emphatics exhibit. Last year, Phoenix Art Museum acquired a rare archive of avant-garde contemporary fashions by Emphatics, an exclusive boutique in Pittsburgh. This comprehensive archive features fashions and accessories by renowned designers with original runway show invitations, videos and other materials and accessories. On view together for the first time, this exhibition celebrates the enormous creativity of fashion from 1963-2013 in a dynamic, multi-media installation.

We will conclude the day with lunch at the Museum Café. Your check for $7 made out to Shalom Hadassah is your reservation and must be received by November 9. Send check to Diane Silverman at 8437 E. Rocky Lake Drive, Sun Lakes 85248. Admission of $15 to the museum is paid individually. The tour is limited to 20 women and car pools will be arranged.
