September 8th 2021


Out of an abundance of caution our planning committee has decided to postpone the HCRF GARDEN FASHION SHOW event which was scheduled to be held on September 18, 2021.

The primary reasons for this postponement are due to difficulties in procuring vendors and supplies, and the recent devastating loss of Dr. Platanias’ wife,  Julie Beth.

We have found it very difficult to secure tables, chairs and staging, etc. Also, caterers and valets are hesitant to commit as a result of staffing shortages. These planning dilemmas have made it very challenging to plan a beautiful outdoor event.

Consequently, the event has been rescheduled for June 2, 2022. Details of the new event  will follow.

Please note that you can either reschedule your attendance for the new date or receive a full refund if you are unable to partake in this event.

If you purchased raffle tickets, the drawing will be held on 09/21/21 at our Fashion Show Committee meeting and results will be posted on our website by 09/22/21. All winners will be contacted directly.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you and hope you understand our reasons for postponing this event. We sincerely hope your schedule will permit you to join us and enjoy a beautiful afternoon next June as we honor Maggie Daley’s legacy and continue our fight against cancer. Thank you for your loyalty and understanding.

For further questions or inquiries regarding this, please contact us: or call (312) 503.8306.

Very Truly Yours,
