Raising funds to help our community (and others!)
Altrusa of Montrose is pleased to host our annual Holiday Festival & Gifts fundraising event again this year. We've just finished setting up the numerous decorated trees, wreaths, gift baskets, gift certificates, and several special items for the silent auction. The public is invited to view and bid on the items all this coming week (Monday, 11/17 through Friday, 11/21) in the lobby of Wells Fargo in downtown Montrose.
On Friday evening from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. we'll hold a festive party with catered appetizers and desserts, wine, beer, and other beverages. Bidding on the auction items will close at 8:15 p.m. Tickets to the festival party are on sale for $20 at Fabula (downtown) and will also be available at the door the night of the event.
New this year:
Be sure to check out the gorgeous Altrusa Literacy Tree just inside the front entrance to the bank. The tree is decorated with children's books and delightful ornaments, including notes from people remembering their favorite books from their own childhood. This tree is not for sale. Instead, it will be donated to the Children's section of our own Montrose Library to promote next summer's reading program. Young participants will have the opportunity to earn rewards of books directly from the tree.
We hope you'll support Altrusa's many literacy projects with a donation to our Literacy Committee. Learn more about this key committee is up to this year, and help us continue to enhance literacy in our community. A donation box has been placed by the Altrusa Literacy Tree for this purpose.
See you on November 21st!
