Dear Friend,

We are so pleased you will be joining us this week at the Raleigh Marriott Crabtree Valley for our NC Girls' Club Getaway. We pray it will be a special weekend of encouragement, fellowship, and especially friendship. We're excited to share messages with you about "Making Friendships That Last."

Listed below are important details you will want to know before arriving at the hotel. Please read the entire letter to be sure you know what to expect so you can plan ahead.

Check-In: Registration check-in begins at 2:00 PM Friday to receive your conference notebook, name badge, and additional information. Please plan to wear your name badge at all times. 

Ballroom Opens 4:20: Please note the slightly later time at 4:20 PM for the ballroom doors to open for seating. This is due to necessary scheduling conflicts.

Hotel Room Reservation: For questions about room availability, or your room reservation, please call the hotel at 919-781-7000.

Hotel Parking: Self-parking at the hotel is free.

Book Tables: The book tables will be open Friday by 3:00 PM, and between sessions throughout both days. Selection will be limited to our own titles for this event, and some will sell out quickly. All books will be even-dollar priced to facilitate faster and easier check-out. We will pay the sales tax so you save.

Dinner on Your Own: Dinner is on your own. The hotel restaurant is excellent, and there are many good and inexpensive restaurants in the Crabtree Valley Mall right across the street. Please allow enough time to return for a "chocolate reception" at your table at 6:30 and to be settled for the first session at 7:00 PM.

Friday Evening Session: The first main session will begin promptly at 7:00 PM, and end by about 9:30 PM. The ballroom and book tables will stay open until about 10:30 PM to allow for fellowship and shopping.

Friday and Saturday Seating: The ballroom opens for seating at 4:20 PM on Friday. The tables will be freshened Friday overnight, but you may keep your same seat.

Saturday Morning Session: The first Saturday session will begin at 8:45 AM with worship and end at 11:30 AM, when we will clear the ballroom for the staff to prepare for the luncheon.

Saturday Luncheon: The 12:30-1:30 seated luncheon will include roasted corn soup, grilled chicken Cobb-style salad, chef select dessert, quality baked rolls, iced tea, and coffee service. Sorry, but we are not able to make substitutions.

Saturday Afternoon Session: The final session will begin at 2:00 and end at 4:30 PM. The book table area will stay open until 5:00 PM for final purchases and checkout.

Nursing Mothers: If you are bringing a nursing infant or lap baby, please use a designated nursing mother table with fewer chairs and extra space. There will be a special nursing mothers' area with audio for your convenience. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Cancellations: All registrations are now final and non-refundable. If for any reason you are not able to attend, you may convert your registration into a tax deductible donation to Whole Heart Ministries if you email us by noon on Friday, Feb 8 at

Questions: For questions about your registration or the conference, call the Whole Heart Ministries office at 719-488-4466 (or 888-488-4466), or email us at For questions about your room or other hotel-related issues, please call the hotel at 919-781-7000.

It is our prayer that this Girls' Club Getaway will be a time not only to be reminded about the lifegiving power of friendships with other women, but to strengthen old and make new friends. We look forward to serving and encouraging you this weekend. We're so glad that you'll be joining us.

Your Friends in Christ,

Sally, Sarah, & Joy Clarkson
