Birthdays! Birthdays! Birthdays!

It's the Red Hat Society's birthday month, and we have asked Hatters to share some fun birthday celebration stories and activities they have participated in. This story was submitted by Queen Mum Donna of the Red Roses of Ranchero Chapter (Florida, United States), and it was so sweet that we had to share it!

The Red Roses of Largo Put A Twist on Birthdays
On March 21, 2012 the Red Roses of Ranchero held their annual Chapterette birthday party. The celebration was a “Birthday Brunch” complete with mimosas, and it was hosted by Chapterettes Terry, Rose and Edda. Each attendee was presented with a special gift donated by our Canadian Red Hat Sister Sally, a flamingo dressed in red feathers and a purple hat in honor of the birthday month.

Of course, since this was a brunch, Hatters were encouraged to show off their Red and Purple PJ’s. Instead of exchanging personal gifts this year, our hostesses encouraged Chapterettes to purchase toys for the “birthday closet” at Grace House, a local women’s shelter. We all left our birthday party with happy hearts knowing that children in a difficult situation might have a few moments of happiness on their special day.    

Love those PJ's ladies!! What a wonderful event! Although acts of giving are not a requirement of the Red Hat Society, we love to hear stories about Hatters who have gone above and beyond for others. Thank you for sharing the "Magic in the Hat"! If you have a birthday story that you would like to share, send it to 

The Red Hat Society will celebrate its 14th Birthday at the Hard Rock Cafe in Hollywood on Wednesday, April 25th. We have a stellar list of events lined up for this special day, including a private VIP screening of Fox Searchlight's "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" starring Judi Dench.
