Lakewood Women's Club Sponsors Raffle
The Lakewood Women's Club kicked off a raffle to benefit Lakewood Community Services Corporation at the Lakewood Arts Festival.
Featuring a beautiful confetti quilt, hand-made by Stitch Cleveland, the Lakewood Women's Club hopes to raise $500 for LCSC, which works to provide emergency food assistance, job assistance, and referrals to agencies for rent and utility assistance.
"The purchase of a raffle ticket will help LWC support LCSC and the much needed work they do to help struggling families in Lakewood," says Heidi Massingill, owner of Stitch Cleveland. Ms, Massingill contacted LWC and suggested the idea of partnering to raise money to benefit Lakewood families. The Modern Sewing Social, which meets monthly at Stitch Cleveland, created the quilt and lovingly donated it to the cause.
Raffle tickets are available until October 26. If you would like to purchase raffle tickets, please stop in at Stitch Cleveland at 18117 Detroit Avenue, at Lakewood Community Services at 14230 Madison Avenue, or contact any member of the Lakewood Women's Club. The cost of each ticket is $2.00, or 3 for $5.00. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The winner will be drawn on Sunday, October 28, at the Eighth Annual Pumpkin Fun Run, following the race at the Women's Pavilion at Lakewood Park. Winners need not be present.
