Gladney Center for Adoption Celebrates the Golden Anniversary of Blossoms in the Dust Luncheon, Style Show & Bazaar


Fort Worth, Texas- Blossoms in the Dust is a unique luncheon and style show featuring Gladney parents strutting down the runway, hand-in-hand with their beautiful children. This fun and exciting luncheon will be held at the Renaissance Worthington Hotel Ballroom on Thursday, March 27, 2014.  This year, Gladney is excited to celebrate 50 years of the famed Blossoms in the Dust luncheon and style show.   In honor of Edna Gladney, guests are invited to wear a hat in keeping with the style and traditions of 50 years ago. 

Frank Garrott, President of the Gladney Center says, “This is an amazing event that celebrates children and families.  The Gladney Center is so thankful for our Gladney Family Associations; we could not accomplish our mission without these wonderful volunteers. They are the agency’s hands, voice and heart and they help make Gladney’s mission come true for children all around the world.”

This event is hosted by The Greater Fort Worth Gladney Family Association.  This hard-working association is comprised of volunteer adoptive families who band together to help raise adoption awareness, participate in fundraising events that support adoption programs and humanitarian aid, while providing support and fellowship to other families who experience the miracle of adoption. Ellen Hunt, Gladney adoptive parent and longtime GFA member, will be presented the prestigious Leslie Amend Award for her dedication and passionate service to the Fort Worth GFA.

The Bazaar begins at 9:30 am, with over a dozen vendors showcasing beautiful jewelry, unique home décor, clothing and personalized gift ideas.  Luncheon seating begins at 11:15 am.
