New to Event Resources Gig Harbor is an organization you need to know about- Altrusa of Gig Harbor.
This small group of dedicated volunteers holds 2 of the most unique events I have ever experienced; Empty Bowls and Painted Violins, both of which I will blog about in the near future. I hope you keep in mind that participating in a fundraising event for an organization that “gives back” is the best kind of event to attend.
But first I would like you to read about who they are and what they do throughout the Gig Harbor community. Here is the listing that gives you a summary of the organization.
This energetic group that is 37 years old, has grown and evolved but most always has focused on local children, students and women in need. Look at what they give back to your community:
- $100,000 to help equip the commercial-level kitchen at the Boys and Girls Club
- An annually scholarship of $2000 for the Peninsula Youth Orchestra.
- $35,000 from the Empty Bowls events over the past 3 years has contributed to programs that combat child hunger.
Please help them by joining or donating and I encourage you to support and attend their fundraisers that I will alert you to on Betty’s Blog.
