The Woman’s Club of Vista (WCV) will be hosting a celebration to share their proud history of 100 years of volunteer service and philanthropy with the Vista community on Sunday, April 17 from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Shadowridge Golf Club. With a “Dollars for Scholars” theme, the event will help raise funds for WCV scholarships, including two centennial scholarships which will be awarded to CSU San Marcos (CSUSM) students. CSUSM President Dr. Karen Hayes will speak and share her insights about empowering women and supporting education, and musical entertainment will be provided by Peter “The KeySlayer” Robberecht on the piano. Silent and live auction items, raffles, and door prizes will be offered to support the scholarships fundraiser. Tickets for the Centennial Celebration are $45 per person or $80 per couple and available by calling 760-470-3568 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
With the mission statement of “Enriching lives through philanthropy and volunteer service,” the 27 members of the WCV contributed over 5,700 volunteer hours in 2015 by working with and supporting groups that work with children, families, the homeless, women, and youth. In addition, the club donated $33,000 to 27 organizations and awarded $16,000 in scholarships to students graduating from seven Vista Unified School District high schools.
