BONSALL — Bonsall Woman’s Club fundraising efforts had one of its most successful years in 2007-2008, according to club president Pat Harvey.
“With proceeds from our Magic of Christmas Teas, Major Market scrip sales, a silent auction, 50-50 drawings and pass-the-hat emergencies, we’ve donated more than $35,000 to worthy causes,” Harvey said.
The following community groups were recipients of these funds during the fiscal year ending in June: 94 Bonsall School District teachers, four scholarships, Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund, Fallbrook Animal Sanctuary, Fallbrook Family Support League, Fallbrook Music Society, REINS, Citizens’ Crime Committee, Friends of the Library Foundation, School of Arts, Women’s Resource Center, Yellow Ribbon Phone Home Project, Bonsall and Fallbrook Student of the Month Programs, Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership, Fallbrook Land Conservatory, Fallbrook High School KOPA Program, Fallbrook Associate Team Swim, Fallbrook Health Foundation, Moonlight Theatre Cultural Foundation and Bonsall and Fallbrook Little League.
“With a total of 9,894 volunteer hours in the past year, club members are ready to start anew when it meets in September to achieve record donations and more than ever hands-on service to our community,” Harvey said.
