Womens Bean Project:
To kick off the new year and get a jump start our collecting dollars for our charity of the year, Women’s Bean Project, the volunteer committee held a 50/50 Raffle. Raffle tickets were sold for $2.00 each for a chance to win half of the money collected. The sales totaled $216.00, so the lucky winner went home with $113.00 for purchasing a $2.00 ticket. Not a bad return on your money!! The Women’s Bean Project is an organization that helps prepare women to enter back into society by teaching the skills and helping them find good paying jobs. The organization is based in Denver, Colorado and had a 100% placement rate in 2012. The website for the organization is www.womensbeanproject.com for more details on the organization and their efforts.
