By Julie Bronemann, Mill Creek Women's Club Publicity Chair
With all the recent media coverage of prominent sports figures and celebrities bringing domestic violence issues to the public eye, it becomes more clear than ever that we all have a responsibility to do what we can to help reduce the violence.
Mill Creek Women’s Club is proud to support the YWCA’s Pathways for Women and again this year 100% of our annual auction proceeds will directly benefit the YWCA Pathway’s Children’s Domestic Violence program. We can help break the cycle by contributing to the funding for counseling of children who witness abusive home environments.
“Thanks for Giving” will be held Wednesday, November 19th, 2014, at the beautiful Mill Creek Country Club.
You can help! If you have a special service, vacation home, themed basket, gift card, or unique item to donate, please contact Ways and Means Co- Chair Cynthia Diederich at 206 829-9292. Donations are accepted until October 15th.
If you would like to attend the auction, get ready to bid often and bid high! Please call Membership Chair Sue Ramsey at 425 385-2016 for a required reservation. The member cost is $28 and cost for guests is $30.
