Philoptochos Christmas Benefit Luncheon & Fashion Show

The St. Anthony Philoptochos Benefit Luncheon and Fashion Show is held each year at the Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena, typically on the first Saturday in December. Proceeds from this beautiful event go directly to the many charities supported by the Ladies Philoptochos. Each year several specific charities, such as Door of Hope, the Flintridge Center, the Neonatal Unit at Arcadia Methodist, and Friends in Deed, are selected as special recipients. Guests enjoy a day of Christmas boutique shopping, Greek pastries to purchase in Santa’s Kitchen, a Fashion Show, musical entertainment, exciting raffle, delicious luncheon and wonderful fellowship with friends from surrounding parishes who attend in support of our Ladies Philoptochos and their mission.

This year’s format may be different, yet the purpose remains the same – support our charities, see old and new friends, and enjoy the sounds and sights of Christmas.  

That’s right! Saturday, December 12, 2020 at 11:00 a.m., we are hosting this one-hour event virtually on Zoom. So it’s your choice, your home, to get dressed up or to just wear your comfy Christmas sweater and then settle in with a beverage and snacks for an hour of entertainment, presentations, fundraising, and great grand awards.  

Like every year, we hope you support our organization’s good works by donating to The Star Program and participating in the Grand Awards raffle. This year we are even offering menu items from Santa’s Kitchen for pickup and gift shopping with wonderful boutiques from our Holiday Marketplace.

Proceeds from this year’s virtual event will go to CALIFORNIA FIRE FOUNDATION and ONE TREE PLANTED and other Philoptochos charities.

It’s going to be fun!
