The holidays are the best time to reflect on our blessings and to find ways to make life better for those around us. I want to thank everyone for supporting the annual toy drive for our Marine families. The sleigh will be at the club, ready to be filled, through Dec. 11. If you'd prefer to make a cash donation, you may do that through the club office. Your generosity is so appreciated and your gifts will bring much happiness to the Marine children this holiday season.
Our Glamour de L'Ocean Fashion Show and Boutique was absolutely beautiful. Thanks to co-chairs Rebecca Corbin and Lisa Morris, and their committee, this was such a wonderful day! From the decor, to the DJ, the models and fashions, fun vendors and a delicious lunch, it was all about the details that made it so special.
Next up is our Merry Mania Holiday Luncheon Thursday, Dec. 8. With the help of Las Commodoras Past President Leslie Kazarian, we are so excited to bring this fun luncheon back! Mania is a cross between an auction, a raffle and bingo all wrapped up with tons of fun! Enjoy a delicious luncheon while bidding on wine, holiday items and so much more! You do not want to miss our last event of the year, so make your reservation today.
As we look to 2023, Las Commodoras will be led by Teri Leigh and her Board of Directors. Mark your calendars for our Welcome Cocktail Party Thursday, Jan. 19. More details will come in the near future!
Lastly, on behalf of myself and the 2022 Las Commodoras Board of Directors, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the most amazing year. I am so grateful to have had this opportunity to lead such a generous and dedicated group of ladies who truly care about preserving BCYC's reputation as the friendliest yacht club on the bay, and it has been my honor to serve as your president.
Wishing the happiest of holidays to you all!
Lori Curtin, Las Commodoras
