The Hat Ladies sense of fashion is matched by our compassion.  After all, there 's "hat" in HeArT.  We have been true to our motto since our inception "When you look good, you feel good.  And when you feel good, you DO good." Recognition, as described under "Feathers in our Caps," has been the (delightful) unintended consequence.

Our history is sprinkled with volunteering for cultural, social, historical, medical, and educational non profit causes throughout our community.  What we give is our time so members of these organizations can reach their fundraising goals while enjoying their event.
