UFDC 2018 Convention in Phoenix

When attending the UFDC 2018 Convention in Phoenix this summer, going on from July 17th through July 21st, consider signing up for one of our many special meal events. Not only are the meal events informative and entertaining, your support helps us meet our food and beverage commitments.

We’re excited about all the meal events on the agenda at the UFDC 2018 Convention and would like for you to get excited too! It is an excellent opportunity to greet old friends and to make new ones by sharing a lunch and indulging our passion for all things doll related. 

On Tuesday, July 17th from noon until 2 o’clock, The Valley of the Sun Doll Club of Phoenix hosts author Anita Ladensack who will be presenting a program on the Googlies dolls –those adorable creatures with the impish faces and large, side-glancing eyes! Each attendee will receive an autographed copy of “The History and Art of Googlies.”

On the second day of the UFDC 2018 Convention, July 18th, from noon until 2:00 p.m., lunch will be hosted by The Gold Coast Doll Club & The Sunshine Doll Club, with a presentation by Jennifer Kohn Murtha who will delight you with Erika Catellani’s “A Little Girl Who Wore Red”- taking you on an adventure with Little Red Riding Hood on her adventures to Grandma’s house. 

Lunch on Thursday, July 19th, from noon until 2:00 p.m., features a presentation by Cindy Zimmerman on Rachel Field’s “Hitty, Her Story.” Joint hosts for this UFDC 2018 Convention meal event are Chesapeake Doll Club and Dollology Club of Washington, D.C. Gail Wilson has been making dolls for nearly 40 years and has lovingly created a 6 ½ Hetty doll for lunch attendees. 

On the evening of the 19th from 7:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m., the “Broadway Babe” dinner event will feature guest speaker Robert Tonner, who will introduce Nancy Ann Abbott, an adorable fashion doll. Phyn & Aero, a division of the Tonner Doll Company, has created the 7-inch doll for the event. 

These are just a few highlights of the meal events. There are so very many more delightful and unique meal events planned for the UFDC 2018 Convention and we hope you will plan now to attend at least one of these events. Take home your very own souvenir dolls from the meal events and expand your own collection. Your support is important to our organization and you will derive so much enjoyment from participating. 

The 69th Annual United Federation of Doll Clubs Convention takes place in Phoenix, Arizona, beginning Tuesday, July 17th, through Saturday, July 21st at the J. W. Marriott Desert Resort Hotel.
