100TH ANNIVERSARY AWARDS 2019
From the beginning, our club was very enthusiastic about raising funds for an award to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the CFUW. We collected $15, 312.29 in about a year, much more quickly than anticipated. Our members have a strong commitment to supporting scholarship, and were generous in this endeavour, both in time and monetary contributions. In addition to individual and interest groups donations, club members hosted teas, auctioned Christmas wreaths, and sold a book of writings from its “Scribblers” group. The teas were fun, the wreaths were beautiful, and the book was a bestseller.
CFUW Guelph 2015 Quilt Raffle
At our May 2015 AGM, to celebrate our 70th Anniversary, we launched our first fundraising raffle. CFUW Guelph’s own Textile Arts Group generously donated two handmade quilts that were raffled in support of our Scholarships and Awards Trust Fund. Thanks to members Barbara Kuczynski and JoAnne Oldridge, tickets were sold at events in the region, and at our November General Meeting, the draw was made.
When all expenses were paid, we were thrilled to transfer a total of $2945.45 to the Scholarships and Award Trust Fund. Well done, everyone!
