Pro golfer and Palm Beach County native Michelle McGann is taking part in the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's ladies luncheon Thursday at the Palm Beach Polo and Country Club in Wellington.
McGann hosts a champagne meet and greet at the event, which will also feature a fashion show.
The luncheon kicks off fundraising for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Arthur's Jam party, which will also be at the Polo Club in October.
Here are more details:
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Palm Beach Chapter is hosting its first ever ladies luncheon in celebration of women in sports. The event will be held at the Palm Beach Polo and Country Club on Thursday, August 24, 2017 from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM and is sponsored by FPL.
Golfer Michelle McGann will highlight the morning with a champagne meet and greet. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is pleased that Beachhouse Etc. by Susanne Pignato will stage a dynamic fashion show with music provided by Roy Price of Roy Price Entertainment Inc.
Look for a fun and instructional “Kiss Your Kids” gift bag sale. Along with an array of treats and treasures, the gift bags will serve as a reminder of the old-fashioned way many mothers and fathers once diagnosed the genetic disease. Cystic Fibrosis causes the body to secrete large amounts of salt. Prior to genetic testing, parents kissing their own children often detected the excess salt and, ultimately, cystic fibrosis.
The luncheon is a kick-off event for the popular Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Arthur’s Jam party which will be held on Saturday, October 7, 2017, also at the Palm Beach Polo and Country Club.
