Sherie Rodekohr and her Floral Design students work their magic to make the “Growing Hope Festival of Trees” gala an enchanted evening to benefit the Lutheran Family and Children’s Services. The fundraiser will take place on Tuesday, November 5 at the Holiday Inn Executive Center. Students are designing table centerpieces and constructing and decorating a 12’ Christmas tree for the event.
Mike Matheny, Manager of the St. Louis Cardinals, will be the keynote speaker at the dinner and auction which supports the Crisis Pregnancy Counseling, Domestic and International Adoption, Emergency and Temporary Foster Care and Teen Parent Program. Accompanying Mr. Matheny will be Special Guest David Freese, third baseman for the Cardinals. Both Matheny and Freese are providing numerous autographed auction items and Freese is even allowing seats at his dinner table to be auctioned off. Many other items including vacations, a beautiful topaz and diamond necklace valued at $5,500 provided by KT Diamond Jewelers and the spectacularly decorated Christmas tree and floral centerpieces (the handiwork of CACC’s Floral Design Program) will be available at the affair. Tickets are $75 per person or $750 for a reserved table of ten. RSVP by October 28 to 800-474-1967 or lfcsmo.org/events/columbia.
