Over the years, Women’s Club Fashion Show has become one of our members’ favorite events. As our membership has grown, so has the demand for reservations. To give our valued members first priority for Fashion Show reservations, the Board has approved new guidelines that begin in 2014:
 “Women’s Club members, plus their immediate family (grandmothers, mothers, mothers-in-law, sisters, sisters-in-law, daughters, daughters-in-law, granddaughters), will be given first opportunity to make reservations. Two weeks prior to the Fashion Show, any remaining reservations will be made available to guests. No reservations will be accepted prior to September 1st of the current year, and all must include the total payment, as well as the names of all attendees for the requested reservation.” 

In compliance with this new policy, no member/eligible family member reservation check will be accepted prior to September 1, and based on availability, no non-member check will be accepted prior to October 13. Our final attendee numbers must be provided to the resort on Wednesday, October 22.

We greatly appreciate our members’ support and hope this new policy allows even more of you to enjoy the annual Fashion Show.
