Sertoma Club membership drive is on
The Carson Sertoma Club is hosting a membership drive and request for partners and friends.
The club’s main mission is to raise funds for local children with hearing and speech problems, cancer, and diabetes, but also sponsors other charitable groups in Carson City as the funds allow. Recipients from the 2009-10 program included the Carson School District for Speech and Hearing, Angel Kiss, Carson Advocates For Cancer Victims, Nevada Diabetes Association For Children and Adults, OARC, FISH, Carson Senior Center, and the Carson City Guide Dog Club.
Funds are raised by three main fundraisers: A family music program with dinner in the spring, a golf tournament in the summer, and a football book program in the fall.
The club has weekly meetings (Wednesday noon lunch at Q’s Restaurant) with interesting speakers, time to socialize with fellow Sertomans, and to have fun. Two socials also are planned each year.
Membership is open to all men and women at least 18 years old who wish to help the children and needy in Carson City. Luncheon guests are always welcome.
The Partner With Sertoma program is for businesses that make an annual $300 contribution to the club, which includes numerous benefits to the business.
The Friend of Sertoma program is simply a contribution of $50 or $25 for those who wish to support our mission but can’t make a commitment to membership. Donor names appear on publicity at all events unless anonymity is requested.
Please help the Carson Sertoma Club help the children and others in our community by joining the club, or by becoming a Partner or Friend of Sertoma.
For Partner or Friend donations, make out the check to Carson Sertoma Club, and mail to Carson Sertoma Club, P.O. Box 69, Carson City, NV 89702.
Any questions on any of these programs, call Frank Taylor at 885-7579.
