RWC hands out fundraiser proceeds

Rossmoor Woman’s Club members were busy over the summer visiting several local non-profit organizations to make in-person donations. In fiscal year 2017-2018, the group donated almost $20,000 to community organizations and gave an additional $16,185 in educational grants to students, for a total of more than $35,000.

Among the organizations receiving end-of-year grants over the summer were the Fisher House in Long Beach, the Youth Center, the Los Alamitos Museum, We Care, Precious Life Shelter and St. Isidore Historical Plaza.

Much of the money donated came from the woman’s club’s two major annual fundraisers, the Holiday Home Tour in December and the Garden and Outdoor Living Tour in May. The club, one of the largest General Federation of Women’s Clubs affiliates in Orange County, celebrated its 60th anniversary this year. Although the group was formed in Rossmoor, members come from all around the surrounding area, including Long Beach, Seal Beach, Leisure World, La Habra, Cerritos, Costa Mesa and more.
