16th Annual Scholarship Luncheon benefitting Orangewood Foundation


Join 44 Women for Orangewood – a unique group of women dedicated to helping Orange County’s foster and community youth – at the 16th Annual Scholarship Luncheon benefitting Orangewood Foundation on Friday, June 5.  This innovative, virtual luncheon – which includes a gourmet lunch and fresh flowers delivered straight to your door – is definitely one you won’t want to miss. 

Although guests will be tuning in from the safety and comfort of their homes, this event will be unlike any other you’ve seen or heard this year.  The 16th Annual Scholarship Luncheon, happening from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m., will be led by committee co-chairs Kimberly Kirksey and Mary VandeBossche with special guest speaker, Celebrity chef Devin Alexander.  Chef Devin is a New York Times Bestselling Author of numerous books, and an award-winning entrepreneur best known as the Chef on NBC’s Biggest Loser.  During the event, she’ll share her own personal connection to the cause and talk about healthy meal prep during an exclusive Q&A. 

Attendees will also have a chance to enjoy ultramodern features during the virtual luncheon, such as bidding during a live fund-a-need, a series of Opportunity Drawings with chances to win various gifts and packages, and special “breakout rooms” via Zoom where guests will have moments to chat with their neighbors (other guests) who are seated at their “table.”  Ticket sales for the Opportunity Drawing will begin on Friday, May 29 and remain open until June 4, the evening before the event.  Below is a list of just a few items that guests can expect:
