2019 Holiday Luncheon

A huge THANK YOU to all of those who attended, donated, and helped to plan the 2019 Holiday Luncheon which was held on December 4, 2019 at the beautiful Virginia Country Club in Long Beach California.

Special recognition goes to event co-chairs Mary Hazelrigg and Clarene Stansbury, along with committee members Barbara Gaylord, Vicki Dawson, Heather Schuchert, Candice Nantais, Elizabeth Berberich and Bobbe Moore.

All around the event was a resounding success and a wonderful way to kick off the holiday season while giving back to patients at Rancho Los Amigos. A very special addition to this year’s event was made to include artwork from the Las Floristas funded pediatric art program on the event invitation. The students did a “Christmas in July” and painted their favorite unique takes on classic holiday scenes.

Theresa Q. was hit by a drunk driver on December 20th, 2018. At just 22 years old, she found herself suffering from life threatening injuries and placed in a medically induced coma to help her recover. She says that Rancho holds a very special place in her heart because during her months of hospitalization, she was able to make such dramatic improvements in her health. Painting has helped her nerve damage and brain function. She always felt she had an artistic talent with makeup, but now painting has added such therapeutic value to her life she doesn’t think she would be as advanced as she is in her physical and emotional recovery without it

About the Holiday Luncheon

The Holiday Luncheon is an annual event hosted by the Lovely Ladies of Las Floristas. This special event features a silent auction, raffle, and boutique vendors to help you get a jump start on holiday shopping. In addition, you will learn more about the causes that Las Floristas supports at Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center as the funds we raise go directly to support pediatric programs at this nationally recognized hospital.

This annual event is a wonderful time to connect with friends, celebrate the season, and shop for the holidays. This past year, we made $40,000 of which 100% went to support our programs at Rancho. This would not have been possible without the support of all those who attended and donated. Please check back for a date for the 2020 Holiday Luncheon.
