Today: 'Holidays on a High Note'

 

The Foothill Auxiliary to Peninsula Family Service kicks off the holiday hoopla with "Holidays on a High Note," its annual benefit featuring floral presentations, holiday table settings, a home boutique store, luncheon, and silent auction. The event takes place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday, Oct. 18, at the Menlo Circus Club, 190 Park Lane in Atherton.

Peninsula Family Service was formerly known as Family Service Agency of San Mateo County.

The feature presentation will be "Ikebana: Japanese Floral Design" by Ikebana master Soho Sakai.

Many local businesses, including Pomegranate Events and Floral Design of Woodside, will showcase holiday home entertainment ideas.

Kris Forbes, chairman of the benefit, estimates there will be approximately 30 table settings and floral presentations.

The boutique will open at 9 a.m., the Ikebana presentation begins at 10:30 a.m., and lunch will be served at 12:30 p.m. Tickets are $100 per person with advance reservations required.

For tickets, an invitation, or more information, call Peninsula Family Service at 403-4300.
