Lucky Last One

Thursday, October 5, 2023, from 6:30-8:30pm at the Pine Barn Inn

The Women's Giving Circle is excited to bring back the 4th annual "Lucky Last One" lottery board fundraiser on October 5th. Join us for an evening of fall fun and your chance to win $3,000. Each $100 ticket gets you admission for two people and one spot on our lottery board (complimentary food and drinks included). Tickets for additional basket and 50/50 raffles will also be available.

All proceeds form the event will support future grantmaking to nonprofits that support women and children in our region. Only 100 tickets will be sold! Tickets are almost sold out! Contact a Steering Committee Member or the Foundation Office for more information.

Volunteer Project 2023

Saturday, November 4, 2023, from 9:30am-3:30pm at Eos Therapeutic Riding Center (Bloomsburg)

The Outreach Committee of the Women's Giving Circle has partnered with Eos Therapeutic Riding Center to participate in their fall clean up day. This volunteer opportunity is open to all Women's Giving Circle members. The goals for the day will include winterizing an outdoor pavilion, raking leaves, collecting and storing outdoor riding equipment, and a variety of other tasks.

To participate, register online here by October 27th. Eos will be providing lunch, but side dishes/snacks donated by volunteers are much appreciated. Please contact Patti Leighow, committee member, or Eric Pangelinan, program officer, with any questions. We hope you can join us!

On the Bright Side

"On the Bright Side" is a casual, online lunch break created as a space to pause from our busy lives and connect with Women's Giving Circle members and other local women. These fun, interactive sessions include speakers and topics centered around mental health, positivity, building community, and collective impact.

Refuel and connect with us! Our next session will be held on Thursday, October 26th at noon. More information coming soon!
