Heartbeat of Toledo Plans Women’s Luncheon for December

Posted: Friday, October 16, 2015 by: Pat Todak | Category: Events


Christmas…’tis the season to be jolly, right? You know—peace on earth and goodwill to men. Then why is it that many women feel so stressed between Thanksgiving and Christmas? Maybe it’s preparing two large meals, buying and writing Christmas cards, decorating, buying gifts and much more. That was the idea behind Dine & Dash, Heartbeat of Toledo’s first women’s luncheon planned for Thursday, December 10, at the Hilton Garden Inn in Perrysburg, according to Pat Todak, executive director of Heartbeat. “It’s meant to be a short respite for women in the midst of the craziness of the holiday season,” she says. Featured speaker is Barb Roose, a local author and motivational speaker who will talk about her own experiences with letting go of the less-important details of the holiday season and focusing on the wondrous parts, Mrs. Todak says. According the Mrs. Todak, the event will include such vendors as Karefish Gifts & Girl Stuff, Mary Kay Cosmetics, Personalized Ornaments, Pampered Chef, Rodan & Fields Skin Care, Premier Jewelry, Jamberry (nail decals), Cake Love, Eloquent Glass, JP Photography, KEEP Collective (bracelets), UsBorne Books, Thrive (health/energy drinks) and Silpada Jewelry. There will also be silent auction tables. “Doors will open at 10:30 a.m. for those wishing to shop and bid on the silent auction items,” Mrs. Todak says. “If you have a limited lunch hour, plan to arrive at noon for a delicious lunch, a great speaker, and the chance to support Heartbeat. We'll have you back on your way to work by 1 p.m.” Attendees are encouraged to help support Heartbeat’s mission by bringing a new or gently used baby item or a pack of diapers for a family in need, Mrs. Todak adds. Cost of the luncheon is $30 per person. To make a reservation, call Heartbeat at 419-241-9131.  Heartbeat is a pregnancy center helping women facing unplanned pregnancies as well as families in need. It has two locations: 4041 W. Sylvania Ave. across from Franklin Park Mall and 101 Main St. in East Toledo.
