Bravo! To once again support the YWCA Pathways Children’s Domestic Violence Program, Mill Creek Women’s Club will present their most important fundraiser of the year on November 19th at the Mill Creek Country Club.
The annual auction, “THANKS FOR GIVING,” will donate 100% of the monies raised to help break the cycle of domestic violence by contributing funds for counseling children from abusive environments.
Thank you to all the businesses and vendors who have donated goods and services! Thanks to amazing Co-chairs, Victoria Wellman and Cynthia Diederich!
From 2009 through 2013, the Women’s Club auction has raised and donated $90,337.00. Let’s see how much we add to that awesome total this year! We can help make a difference.
The warm and wonderful holiday season is upon us. What better way to celebrate than with joyous music? The highly acclaimed Jackson High School Jazz Band, under the direction of Lesley Moffat, will perform Christmas favorites at the December Luncheon Program.
Magical elves will deliver candy canes. Maybe a fun sing-along? Favorite books will be traded at the Book Exchange.
Molbak’s in Woodinville is an enchanting holiday destination with décor galore! A workshop for designing and planting indoor seasonal themed containers will be December 10th and includes a delicious brunch in their Garden Café.
