2009 Holiday Festival coming soon

Altrusa's annual fundraising event, the Holiday Festival & Gifts event, will be held on Friday, November 20, 2009 at Wells Fargo Bank downtown from 6:15 - 8:15 pm. This year, a $10 per person donation at the door includes an extensive appetizer selection, desserts, beverages (including wine and beer), and a souvenir wine or beer glass to take home.

A wide assortment of decorated trees, wreaths, centerpieces, and a variety of gift baskets suitable for all occasions will be on display in the lobby of the bank starting Monday, November 16 from 9:00 am to 5:30 pm daily.  Everyone in our community is encouraged to stop by the bank to view and bid on these silent auction items. The silent auction will end on Friday, November 20 at the conclusion of the evening event.

Altrusa Club of Montrose CO Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit foundation, relies on funds raised at this event to enable the club to fund local area scholarships and grants for other charitable organizations, as well as our numerous other service projects. These include Lifeline (with over 100 units in local homes), Love Hug Bears (stuffed animals for children at MMH), Buddy Bags (tote bags filled with books and items for children), Tender Touch Turbans (for cancer patients), Pennies for Peace (raising funds to build schools in remote villages in the Himalaya), Kids on Wheels (promoting bike usage & safety), and many more projects.
