Please read the attached letter and let me know if you can donate anything (perhaps a white elephant Christmas gift that you can't use) to Zonta's auction which will be held on Saturday, April 13, 2013 during a brunch at Akron Fairlawn Country Club. It's a nice event and we'd love to have you come for lunch too!
The recipient charities of our fundraiser this year are: the Haven of Rest (homeless women and children) for prescription drugs, the Verna Truschel Scholarship Program at the University of Akron for displaced homemakers, the Medina and Summit Counties Battered Women Shelters to replace lost or destroyed identification, and Zonta International to support international programs aimed primarily at ending violence against women and improving their economic status.
We have chosen to help as many women's groups as we possibly can this year but we can't do it without your help. Won't you please look in your closets and in your hearts? I'm sure you can find something there to contribute.
With my sincerest heartfelt thanks,
