Fundraising...2019 Fall Card & Game Day Party
246 participants joined together for a wonderful afternoon of fun and games at Thornberry Creek at Oneida, October 30, 2019. The fundraiser went off beautifully! Silent auction items, raffle baskets, money tree and a special ornament sale gave everyone a chance to be a winner!
As always, the Yum Yum Shoppe gave yet another way for people to participate.
The shuttle service was again a welcome greeting for those who had a long walk on a cool afternoon. The afternoon was spent playing bridge, mah jongg, hand & foot, dominoes, and many other games. Winners were recognized for all of the games.
Fundraising: 2018 Packer House Party
Fifty-one people attended the enormously successful and fun-filled Packer House Party on September 23, 2018. Attendees were treated to appetizers, a meal, beverages of their choice, and door prizes as they watched the Packer game in a spectacular home overlooking the Packer stadium. Thanks to BCCWC members and guests who supported this awesome event. A special “thank you” also to the Wisconsin Public Service Foundation and the Bob and Pat Endries Charitable Fund for their sponsorship of this fundraiser.
Fundraising - 2018 Spring Card & Game Party
Another beautiful afternoon provided the setting for the Spring Card & Game Day at Thornberry. Cheerful smiles greeted the 225 attendees, who wandered through the Yum-Yum Shoppe on their way into the main party. Party-goers experienced an array of wonderful raffle and silent auction items. Bridge, mah-jongg, dominoes, hand-and-foot, horse collar and Sequence entertained the 225 participants for the afternoon. Another successful fundraising venture!
Fundraising 2019 Outcome:
Members of the Brown County Community Women’s Club, Inc. were present to view the newly-installed park bench at the Fort Howard Apartments. BCCWC donated the bench through a Community Award. The bench is part of a large scale renovation to the outdoor recreation area for residents.
Community Service: Fort Howard Senior Lunch November 9, 2019. (Some of those who worked are pictured.)
Energetic volunteers cooked, baked and served residents and staff at Fort Howard Apartments. Many of the residents remained for bingo. Winners were treated to gift cards, household supplies and non- perishable foods. Some hugged BCCWC volunteers, and many expressed their gratitude, saying the BCCWC luncheon should not be missed.
Community Service: Building Quilts for Habitat for Humanity. The BCCWC quilters are gearing up for the first Habitat for Humanity home dedications in 2016.
In February, the first warm and cozy lap quilt, made by BCCWC member, Charla Everard, was presented to the Barajas-Rizo family by Gina Reinardy.
Fundraising: 2018 BCCWC Golf Outing
We had a beautiful day for our annual BCCWC golf outing at Mid Vallee golf course on June 11. There were 95 golfers and 14 card players. We had numerous raffle baskets, gift cards, 10 silent auction auction items and a 50/50 raffle.
"Meet and greet" started at 8:00. Coffee and bagels were set up for everyone to enjoy. Golfers bought tickets for mulligans and 2' strings to improve their lie on the green. They had a shotgun start at 9:00 and played a scramble format. They were back in the clubhouse by noon. There, they joined those who played cards or other games for a beautiful taco bar luncheon.
Community Service: Our very own JoAnn DeVoe was recently recognized for her volunteer work at the House of Hope. JoAnn eagerly shows up each Tuesday not knowing whether it will be a day of office work, child care, data entry, baking with a child/children, etc. BCCWC has been supporting House of Hope through volunteers, grants and drives since 2010.
