Pacific Palisades Woman's Club Donates $38,000

"The happiest place in Southern California on March 6 wasn't Disneyland, but rather the Pacific Palisades Woman's Club, where grant recipients shared $38,000 that will be used for worthwhile causes. Representatives of the 25 community and charitable organizations that were recipients of the grants first were treated a spectacular display of desserts that included cupcakes, bars and cookies, before receiving checks. Woman's Club president Cathi Ruddy welcomed everyone and said, "I am in awe of the many people who volunteer and contribute to making Pacific Palisades a better community and by hearing their ideas and the results of their efforts. It is a privilege to support you." Grant committee chairperson Joanna Curtis explained that once grants were received, they were reviewed and presented to the board. The general membership voted on the amounts given each applicant. "I was truly inspired by each organization both in reading their applications and their presentation at Grant Night," said Curtis. "I love how the members of the Woman's Club came together to raise money to support our local community through 25 projects that touch the lives of every Palisadian."                                               From the Palisades News
