• 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:

    MAJOR FUNDRAISERS

    Razzle Dazzle 2023 Luncheon

    The GFWC Woman’s Club of Pewaukee is hosting their largest fundraiser of the year on Thursday, November 16, at The Ingleside in the Lake Country Ballroom.  It is called the Razzle Dazzle Luncheon. New this year we are featuring men and women in the Armed Forces with an on-stage presentation revealing their service to the United States in uniform. The event includes a silent auction, raffle, live auction, lunch and a special presentation honoring our Armed Forces.

    Proceeds from our fundraisers support local charities in our community including the Pewaukee Food Pantry, Pewaukee Public Library, Positively Pewaukee, Pewaukee Area Historical Society, Women’s Center and many, many more nonprofit organizations.

    Here are forms to solicit for donations for our silent auction and raffle.  A Military Participant Form is also attached if you know someone willing to be a part of the presentation on our stage. All forms must be submitted at least 2 weeks prior to the event. Thank you for your assistance to help make our event a great success!

    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.

    GENERAL MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP MEETING ACTIVITIES

    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!
