All proceeds from our fundraisers which include monthly sales of tickets for prize donations, and special fund raisers, such as garage sales, "Make It-Bake It-Just Donate It Silent Auction, and "Dimes Make A Difference" are awarded by a vote of the general membership to local charities. A committee, with input from the membership and Board of Directors, selects the charities to be placed on the ballot and the number of charities that will be awarded the funds. Checks are awarded in May of each year.
