FGI 2016 HOLIDAY PARTY AND 80th ANNIVERSARY
You are cordially invited to join FGI Minneapolis St. Paul at the 2016 Holiday Party where we will also be celebrating our 80th birthday. We are pleased to honor the woman who started our chapter – Elizabeth Quinlan – a phenomenal person that impacted Fashion and Retail businesses worldwide.
Elizabeth Quinlan, owner of Young Quinlan known as the “Queen of Minneapolis”, brought FGI to Minnesota 80 years ago. We are pleased to honor her at this event in having Lucia Crane, Ms. Quinlan’s grand-niece, speak and do a question and answer session about her great-aunt Elizabeth. Ms. Quinlan was a woman of incredible talent, fashion acumen, and influence and power when few women had that honor.
6-7 Cocktail Reception with Hors D'oeuvres
7-8 Dinner catered by the Woman's Club of Minneapolis
8-9 Presentation about Elizabeth Quinlan
The dinner menu provides the following entrées:
Beef Bourguignon with Bacon, Mushrooms, and Caramelized Onion

Last, but not least. It's a holiday party and we want to give gifts! There will be a raffle of wonderful items such as gift cards and certificates, baskets full of fabulous fun, inspired flower arrangements, hand-crafted jewelry and other great things made or sold by local artisans and shops.
