THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING OUR COMMUNITY WITH YOUR PURCHASE.
At a “bare minimum,” creative minds collaborating for charities means great things for our community!
A Local Effort in Collaboration
Led by local Queen of Philanthropy Patty Baker, in partnership with award-winning photographer Charlie McDonald, some of Naples’ leading ladies were invited to go almost au naturel for their cherished charities: Brenda Melton, Audrey Pengelly, Simone Lutgert, Diana Riley, Sharon von Arx, Sarah Baeckler, Sue Dalton, Kristen Coury, Dr. Jaclynn Faffer, Myra Daniels and Jennifer McCurry.
An Inspired Idea Comes to Life
Taking inspiration from the feature film Calendar Girls, based on the true story of women in England who “dared to bare all” to raise funds when one of their own lost a husband to leukemia, our dynamic dozen channeled their inner Helen Mirren, gathered their courage and dropped everything else!
Then, COVID-19 altered the best laid plans. The April 2020 red carpet launch for Naples Calendar Girls, complete with stage version of the show at The Naples Players, was postponed; however, the needs in our community continued to grow.
Supporting a Shared Need in Our Community
In true Calendar Girls fashion, the Naples Calendar Girls collectively decided to move forward, altering the original mission by finding “common ground” and addressing a critical local need – food insecurity.
The Collier Calendar Girls are hopeful the community will support the project with a donation for the 2021 Calendar. Thus, meeting the most basic of needs…providing food security for our community at large.
