The Women’s Club of Milton members extend a heartfelt thank you to those who made their 2020 fundraising campaign successful.
Challenged with finding ways to fundraise during the COVID-19 pandemic, fundraising committees were inspired to think out of the box. Committee members, local businesses, supporters and club bakers all stepped up to the task.
The club would like to recognize the following supporters:
The Milton Arts Guild granted permission to use past Holiday House Tour artwork for notecards by artists Ginny Barney, Anne Buck, Barbara Coffin, Cathy Rose and Carol Yost.
DCI printed the Stay-At-Home Tea Party invitations and the holiday notecards.
The Cape Gazette providing dining cards and printed news stories.
Milton Mercantile, Lewes Gourmet and Lavender Fields at Warrington Manor permitted sales of the club’s holiday notecards at their locations.
Pro-Stitch Embroidery supplied custom-printed merchandise for the club’s pop-up store.
The Milton Historical Society gave the club permission to host its fundraiser Dec. 12.
Nancy Reeves donated a quilt to raffle.
Milton Chamber of Commerce and the Delaware State Federation of Women’s Clubs advertised the Dec. 12 event.
Fundraising committee members worked as a team to make it all happen. The ladies who tackled new, unknown ventures are Elaine Carbone, CarolAnn Capobianco, Paula Costanzo, Linda King, Mary Knight, Ellen Passman, CarolAnn Stone and Nancy Richardson.
The club thanks everyone who stopped by Dec. 12 and observed the COVID-19 guidelines without complaint. To those who stopped by to give monetary donations, thank you.
Last year the club donated more than $9,700 back to the Milton community. All shoppers and supporters help the club continue to make a difference locally.
Examples of where the club contributes include: Scholarship awards to Milton women who are high school graduates; Milton Community Food Pantry; Milton Public Library; Milton Fire Department; Milton and H.O.B. elementary schools, and Mariner Middle School.
