Red Hat Ladies State Convention Held at the Lodge

Posted: Tue, October 12, 2010


The National Society of Red Hat Ladies held their state convention October 9th and 10th at the Lodge at Deadwood Hotel.  The theme of the convention was “The Roaring 20’s”.  The event attracted over 500 Red Hat Ladies from throughout South Dakota.  The event consisted of banquets and exhibits and included a special brunch for breast cancer survivors on Friday.

In the spirit of the Red Hats, the Lodge at Deadwood Hotel and Casino also joined in on the festivities.  The casino was specially decorated for the Red Hat convention and all hotel guests received red and purple beads upon check-in.  “The Red Hats are a great group of ladies who know how to have a good time,” said Troy Ihde, Director of Casino Marketing.  "I am glad they choose the Lodge as their convention location and we look forward to hosting their event again in the future.”
