We are proud to report that 2015 has been an amazing year so far for the Fairchild Palms. We held a BLOWOUT Fine Wines & Upscale Ales event in January of this year with a record breaking 250+ attendees, our biggest silent auction yet, and the most wine and alcohol sponsors to date combining to help us raise $18,000 for our mission in support of the Fairchild Challenge. Everyone who was present can attest that this was one of our most successful events in recent Palms history, and we are excited to duplicate these results in 2016!! We also held our first ever 5K race in the Garden in April of this year, another phenomenal success! For the first time in a long time we brought together teachers, students, family and friends of all ages to compete and have fun on a race through the Garden during the closing months of the final Chihuly glass exhibit to be held at Fairchild. We’d like to extend a big THANK YOU to every sponsor who donated cash and in-kind sponsorships, to every volunteer who participated and helped make these events a success, and to each and every one of YOU for helping us pull off these incredible events with your continuing support and attendance! As a result of our members’ continued support, we were able to donate $20,000 this year in support of the Fairchild Challenge. We have also had some changes to our Board and some new additions that will help shape a positive future for our group. We look forward to introducing our new Board members and celebrating the close of a successful year with you at Fall Flavors on November 20th, 2015, and as always: please don’t hesitate to reach out to us by phone or email (786 888-1495 or firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’re interested in volunteer opportunities and getting more involved with the Palms!
