Summer Social Update - Giving Hope

Summer Social Update - Giving Hope

June 22 Summer Social Update

Twenty-eight ladies attended our Giving Hope Summer Social supporting Seedlings, Braille Books for Children. Ladies enjoyed our in-person event with friends, warm weather, and a bonus of live dinner music along with a delicious Greek buffet at George’s Senate on Bushwood Public Golf Course. Our newest Giving Hope member Christine Schingeck joined us along with several guests. Giving Hope pins were handed out to members. Members are encouraged to wear their pins to our events. Giving Hope golf shirts are still available for $53. Please contact Linda Demmer.

The Fox Hills Golf prize was given out. We had 4 gift bag prize drawings from Vitrine on Main in Plymouth. Giving Hope ladies were encouraged to participate in the Vitrine shopping event the following Friday & Saturday, in which 20% of sales were donated to Seedlings.

Katelynn Lucus from Seedlings, Braille Books for Children, shared their passion and mission. They believe it is important for all children to be raised in a literacy-rich environment. Visually impaired children also need to be surrounded with affordable Braille materials. Giving Hope Ladies participated in their Buy-a-Book donation program. Every $10 donates a Braille book. Each book donated by Giving Hope will be inscribed “This book was donated by Giving Hope, Women’s Giving Circle-Plymouth-Canton”.

Cheers to 15 Years

Giving Hope, Women's Giving Circle was founded in 2006.
 
At that time, a group of local women philanthropists came together to establish the organization and encourage other women to join in philanthropic giving. Their early efforts were focused on helping in the local community, reaching and assisting women, children, and their families in need. For 15 years, Giving Hope, Women's Giving Circle has been accomplishing that objective and continues to develop women's philanthropy and meet needs through fundraising and grant making.
 
Gather to celebrate 15 years of Giving Hope!
The event will include:
-Gift Gathering for the Bottomless Toy Chest
-short business meeting
-pinning ceremony for members

Tickets are $35 and include plentiful appetizers and a champagne toast. Tickets must be purchased in advance.
