April 7 – Monthly Luncheon
Please join us on Friday, April 7, 2017, for our next monthly luncheon at the Citrus Club. This will be a networking luncheon where you will have the opportunity to socialize with friends and make new friends! To RSVP, please complete your luncheon reservation no later than midnight, Tuesday, April 4, 2017 to ensure sufficient seating. Luncheon check-in begins at 11:30 a.m., and the luncheon program will begin promptly at Noon. Beginning January 1, 2017, CFAWL luncheons are $25.00 per person for current CFAWL members who RSVP by midnight on the Tuesday prior to the Friday lunch and for all members of the judiciary. All luncheon guests are $30.00. There is an additional $5.00 charge for CFAWL members who attend the lunch but do not RSVP by midnight on the Tuesday prior thereto. Cancellations must be received no later than this same time (via email at email@example.com.) Because the Citrus Club charges CFAWL according to the total RSVP number, and CFAWL is a non-profit organization which does not have the funds necessary to absorb luncheon costs, all who RSVP but do not cancel timely and do not attend the lunch will be invoiced in the amount of $30.00/person. We appreciate your understanding.
