SHOP WITH SCRIP GIFT CARD FUNDRAISING PROGRAM

OUR CLUB MEMBERS SUPPORT OUR ONGOING FUNDRAISER THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.

In addition to purchasing gift cards for others, you can purchase gift cards for your own use such as grocery stores, i.e. Shop Rite, Weis, and Acme, as well as restaurants, gas cards and more.  The list of vendors is extensive.  


Here are some of the vendors who offer over 8% to our club:  L.L. Bean and Lands’ End 16%, Old Navy and GAP 14%, Talbots 13%, Macys 10%, Cracker Barrel 9%, Applebee’s 8% and many more!  Orders will be taken at every meeting and can be delivered within 2 days of placing the order. 

 

"DINE TO DONATE" FUNDRAISER AT THE GEORGE INN was held on Thursday, April 4, 2019

The George Inn specifies a night each year where they donate a percentage of the sales between 5 and closing.  Members and friends share dinner and a relaxing evening eating and drinking while earning money for our Club.  Our Club is grateful to The George Inn for their continued support, and we encourage our families and/or friends to join us.  This has been a very successful event.


"A TASTE OF VERNON" was held on April 29, 2019 at Heaven Hill Farm.

A Taste of Vernon, held at Heaven Hill Farm,  is sponsored by the Vernon Chamber of Commerce, who in turn donate their proceeds to three charities.  For the past two (2) years the Vernon Township Woman’s Club was one of the recipients.

"FARM TO FORK FONDO-Hudson Valley"was held JUNE 9,2019

 For the past 4 years, we have been asked to volunteer for the Farm to Fork Fondo-Hudson Valley at THE WARWICK VALLEY WINERY (farmtoforkfondo.com). Our members and volunteers known as "TEAM BLUE" have come in First Place in the volunteer competition for the past three (3) years (wrenegadefoundation.org). We host the aid station at Westtown Brew Works, supplying the bicycle riders with water, breakfast pizza, protein bars and other goodies. The riders then vote for their favorite volunteer team. (Also check out wrenegadefoundation.org) The monies raised from this fundraiser this past year have enabled us to offer a scholarship to a woman over 35 returning to school. Looking forward to defending our title in 2020!


HEAVEN HILL FARM-"GREAT PUMPKIN FESTIVAL"

SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2019

This is our largest fundraiser!  Each year our Club participates in "The Great Pumpkin Festival"at Heaven Hill Farm on weekends from Mid-September through the end of October.  Members work in the ticket booth, checking wristbands at the entrance gate to Pumpkinland, and monitoring the participants in the "Rat Race".

We invite husbands and friends to help us raise funds by "working" the Festival.
