• To provide support and financial assistance to our community, the GFWC Woman’s Club of Pewaukee actively looks for opportunities to raises funds.  At years-end, as many as 19 local organizations will receive a donation from the club.  In May 2021 we contributed over $15,750.

    We achieve our goal through two major categories:


    Spring Fundraiser 2021 – “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend”

    Member enthusiasm quickly transformed what started as an informal spring “high tea” into a second major fundraising event.

    In 2021, due to the impact of COVID-19 in 2020, this event was our major fundraiser.  It was held at the Ingleside Hotel on April 21st!  It included a raffle, silent and live auctions, lunch, and entertainment.  “Neil Diamond,” our featured entertainer.


    Fall Event  2019 — “Razzle Dazzle” 

    “Razzle Dazzle” is our premium event.  It had to be canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic.  In the past, it has been held at a local hotel.  The event draws between 200-225 attendees.  It includes a raffle, silent and live auction, lunch, and entertainment.   At our last event in 2019 we provided our guests with a wonderful program – “Dueling Pianos.”

    That time our special in-kind donation group was the Hope Center.  Attendees contributed a literal car-full of coffee to help the Hope Center’s dinner and day center programs.


    Meeting Raffle

    Every meeting includes some type of in-kind raffle.  In addition to being great fun,  we raise approximately $1000 each year that goes into our general distribution fund.

    Membership Meeting fundraising in-kind activities

    The Pewaukee Food Pantry is our banner group and receives food and other needed articles every month.   This year, additional items were collected for several other groups:  non-perishable food for the local elementary school “snack” program; used athletic shoes for “Soles4Souls, new Dr. Seuss Books, and small ladies items for “Women in the Military.”

    Every fundraising activity requires significant member-donated time and/or tangible contributions.  Club members are selfless in meeting these needs.  There is always room for more help!
