Led by event chairs Martha Grimm, Lisa Hayes Jankowski & Darcy Weber, the annual event includes dozens of vendors from throughout the U.S., offering items ranging from jewelry and fashion accessories to high-end clothing and eclectic home décor. It also includes a Trifles & Treasures area of gently used items, which has become one of the most popular offerings of the annual event that draws crowds from throughout Palm Beach County and surrounding coastal communities. The show opens with a VIP party on February 18. At $100 per person, it includes an evening of shopping, hors d'oeuvres, cocktails, and free valet parking. The boutique continues February 19-21 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at a cost of $5 per person.
“We are extremely grateful to all who contribute to the success of this event. It provides substantial funds that help us continue our work with women who struggle with addiction. It is a cause that touches so many families and we are able to make a difference for many of them as a result of this event,” said Lisa McWhorter, Wayside House’s chief executive officer. Wayside House was established in 1974 by Dr. Susan B. Anthony, great niece and namesake of the women’s rights activist and by Phyllis Michelfelder to provide alcoholism services to women. The center now serves women ages 18 and older suffering from drug and alcohol issues and accompanying disorders. The traditional and innovative therapies are now supplemented with equine, art and horticulture therapies, as well as yoga, parenting and job-skills training.
