Grant Awards Night Tuesday, March 7th, awarding over
$31,000 to charitable organizations in the areas of arts, recreation, beautification, education, community and charitable organizations. Over 70 people representing 19 local on-profits and Club members filled the clubhouse enjoying hors e'oeuvres and desserts prepared by Club members and K Bakery before the award ceremony.
