AWC walkers/cyclists raise over $600 for the FAWCO Target Project

Three AWC members – Mary Stewart Burgher, Lesley Jensen and Jonelle Lemcke – raised $657 for the FAWCO Target Project (https://www.fawco.org/global-issues/target-program/health/target-project-2020-2022) by securing sponsorship for their participation in the FAWCO Virtual Tour, which ended in February. We proudly collected and sent the money to FAWCO at the end of March.

Fundraising with books and holiday earrings

As always, I spent the year collecting and selling books, music and DVDs, and closed it out with offering a wide array of holiday earrings for sale – with all proceeds going to AWC charities. Just before the end of the year, I transferred the proceeds to AWC co-treasurer Claude Lawson. Even in this pandemic year, with no big sales or gatherings, these proceeds amounted to 4,915 kroner.

This wonderful result required the help of many people to achieve: thanks to all the AWC members and friends who donated and/or bought items, and especially to Véronique Pascal for helping to tote and transport books, etc. and for so beautifully advertising the earrings on the AWC Coffeeshop.

Jewelry Donations

Cyntheia Singleton, our dedicated jewelry saleswoman would like to remind all our members once again to go through their jewelry to see if you have anything that is not being worn any longer and which you would like to donate to our fundraising efforts. Cyntheia’s constant efforts with the sale of jewelry at our meetings and other events provide the club with a steady trickle of funds that we can pass on to our chosen charities.

So take a look through your drawers, treasure chests and cubby holes to see if something you’ve tired of needs a new enthusiastic owner!
