Posted 7-07-2014

Join Fran Padgett for an elegant Sunday brunch benefitting the Weathervane Foundation on September 28 at 11 a.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn Houston NW. See the letter from Fran below:

Dear friend,

Not in a hundred years did I think breast cancer would bring me such special and wonderful blessings: knowing friends like you, care from the greatest breast surgeon in America (Phillip G. Sutton, M.D.) and the honor from Hilton Garden Inn Houston Northwest to be Artist in Residence.

Since the start of the Hilton honor they have sponsored the October meeting to benefit Care Share and Be Aware raising funds for their library and other items; they have set up for me a "meet the artist" time – "First Fridays with Fran" providing lunch with coffee and tea; they have named their board room "Fran Padgett Board Room" where I can display several paintings and from the revenue they receive for the use of it a percentage is paid to The Weathervane Foundation; and provided for exhibit space a corridor (The Corridor Gallery) where artworks are displayed for sale.

Earlier this year Allan Hant, the General Manager, suggested the next fund raiser for Weathervane be in July, and wouldn't we like it to be an elegant Sunday brunch. Three Weathervane volunteers began working on details such as let there be a theme – Weathervane first annual award; contacting sponsors for tables; printing invitations, deciding on menu (Hilton provides at no charge the food and drinks for these fund raisers, for which I am exceedingly grateful)! The date of Sunday, September 28, was agreed to be the day.

The volunteers and I believe the first annual award should be for Dr. Sutton, for all the many blessings he has brought to me personally, to the breast cancer community and to The Weathervane Foundation.

Consider this letter as my personal and heartfelt invitation to join us at the Hilton for champagne brunch, live music, the award presentation, and chances for fantastic raffle items. Tickets are $25.00 each, or table sponsorships* are available for $300.00 each (all proceeds benefit the Weathervane Foundation). I look forward to seeing you.

With friendship and gratitude,

Fran Padgett
Executive Director
The Weathervane Foundation, Inc.
