Washington, D.C. Thursday, March 06, 2014
Fairmont Washington, D.C., Georgetown is pleased to announce “Tickled Pink, XI” the hotel’s eleventh annual mother-daughter fashion show benefiting Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic. Fairmont has once again partnered with Pink Palm at Bethesda Row, a Lilly Pulitzer® Signature Store, to provide the latest in spring and summer fashions. The event takes place on Saturday, May 10, 2014, from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. in the hotel’s grand ballroom.
Celebrity/model mother-daughter duos will don the latest “Lilly” spring and summer fashions provided by Pink Palm Bethesda Row. CBS Anchor Lesli Foster with daughter Jordon, NBC reporter Angie Goff with daughter Adora and NBC anchor Eun Yang with daughter Carys are some of the celebrity models taking to the Fairmont runway to help support wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions. NBC 4’s Chief Meteorologist, Doug Kammerer, will serve as the Master of Ceremonies.
While indulging a passion for these unique and brightly colored Lilly Pulitzer® fashions that have been warm weather chic ever since Jackie Kennedy slipped one on in the 1960s, guests will enjoy a lavish tea that, like Lilly, is both classic and new. Fairmont’s culinary team will serve mainstays like watercress, salmon and egg salad sandwiches, and homemade scones with lemon curd and real Devonshire cream, alongside kid-pleasing peanut butter and jam. The sweet tray will be rounded out with everything from herbal tea cookies to berry tartlets and mini chocolate chip cookies. For an added touch of sparkle, alongside Fairmont’s signature Metropolitan Tea blends, butlers will be passing Kir Royales and Mimosas.
Come dressed for the occasion - prizes will be awarded for the best “vintage Lilly” and a silent auction will feature numerous luxuries including weekend get-a-ways at several Fairmont Hotels. Guests will receive take-home Lilly goodie bags courtesy of Lizanne Jeveret of Pink Palm at Bethesda Row, and complimentary valet parking will be provided. Tickets for the Tickled Pink Tea are $100 per adult and $40 for children 16 and under. 100% of all proceeds to benefit Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic, a local non-profit organization that grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.
