Our 79th Smith Day, Great Escapes, was a wonderful success and fun for all. From the “Paris & Milan” room (women’s clothing) to the “Blackwell’s Bookstore” (books), wonderful finds and bargains galore were available to the astute shopper. As always, the Bakery (“French Quarter”) and the luncheon (“A Hillside in Tuscany”) afforded delectable treats. And the “Silk Road” (Silent Auction) was full to the hilt with treasures.
Our take for this annual fund-raiser for Smith College scholarships was over $10,000—very respectable given the economic situation. Heartfelt thanks go to Smith Day 2010 co-chairs Pamela Coleman and Cybel Monson, as well as to our entire group of workers and donors.
Hopefully many recent alums discovered that this is The Place to find their designer professional and casual clothes and to meet other Smithies and/or entertain their guests. Remember, all the funds raised go to our endowed Minnesota scholarship fund, which sends local young women to Smith, as well as to Praxis scholarships, which provide internships to current Smith students from Minnesota. It’s a WIN-WIN any way you look at it.
