Mark your calendar and get ready to Return to Paradise!  The Hibiscus Children’s Center Guild presents Return to Paradise on Saturday, January 7, 2017, at Mariner Sands Country Club in Stuart.  This island adventure will have guests enjoying a gourmet dinner, fabulous casino and prizes, dancing to live music, and most importantly, supporting abused children living at the Hibiscus Shelter. 

The festivities begin at 6:00pm with cocktails, followed by delicious dinner stations prepared by Chef John, and then head to the Casino to put your luck to the test!  Each guest will receive a $100 funny-money voucher for chips and additional chips can be purchased throughout the evening.  All money raised from Casino and the evening will directly benefit the Hibiscus children.   Your support will not only help Hibiscus continue providing a safe shelter, but also counseling, medical and educational services for abused children.  Just a few of the exciting casino prizes include a huge basket of cheer, dine around town, 14kt pearl drop earring from Diamonds by Terry, Tampa Bay Rays Suite tickets (Rays vs. Yankees, up to 16 guests) and more!
