Georgia on my mind

ATLANTA, GEORGIA - WOW! I don’t know if it was the warm atmosphere, the warm company, or the warm smiles, but this party was just about the most sweet, welcoming and comfortable event ever. Although there were 400+ people in attendance, somehow our hostess and host (Dina and Cy) were able to make everyone enjoy this party like no other. With gracious hosts, a large crowd, a small auction and numerous donations all benefiting the Vera Bradley Foundation – always good stepping stones for a successful luncheon – you couldn’t ask more.

Several luminaries from Atlanta families attended, and there was also one very special guest speaker from our home office – Barbara Bradley Baekgaard!!! It’s always such a gift for people hosting events to have Barbara or Patricia R. Miller, Vera Bradley co-founders, attend. Usually, events are stuck with just me, so when one of them comes - it’s like getting a huge bonus!
