I recently had the privilege to spend some time with two of TEMPTING TABLES biggest supporters and organizers...Marleen DeLong and Jackie Hilt.   We all met up at Jackie's gorgeous, historic Muskegon home to chat about this year's amazing event...and so I could get a sneak peek at some of this year's historic wedding dress collection...and some of the prized one-of-a-kind auction items.
Marleen and Jackie, along with all the other volunteer organizers put countless hours into each years' Tempting Tables event...lining up local talented artists creating brilliant one of a kind tablescapes....all absolutely awe inspiring to behold.   This year showcasing 38 individual tablescapes.   The organizers also hunt down one-of-a-kind private collections that would make any museum proud to have....this year 9 collections in all...including the prized wedding dress collection, featuring gorgeous gowns from decades across time.   
Also, many amazing donated items that will be auctioned off during this 4 day event...many of these items are absolutely priceless.   Marleen and Jackie wanted everyone to know that 100% of the ticket sales and auction item dollars raised will go directly to breast cancer research and breast cancer patient and survivor services and support.
TEMPTING TABLES Tablescapes & Collections 2019 will take place at the Delta by Marriott Grand Conference Center (formerly Holiday Inn) located on Third Street in Downtown Muskegon.... Thursday, October 10 through Saturday, October 12...with a very special Patron Celebration being held from 4pm - 7pm on Wednesday, October 9.   Also a special breakfast to honor Dream Fulfillment Fund recipients, plus an informational seminar...the breakfast will take place at 8:15am at the Frauenthal Hilt Building on Western Avenue.
