Card party proceeds donated to Holly Place

June 01, 2009

Each year for more than 20 years, the Women's Club, at 31 S. Prospect St., Hagerstown, has sponsored a benefit card party and luncheon, with proceeds and a donation from the Women's Club given to a local charity.

Past recipients have included the Community Free Clinic, Hagerstown Day Nursery, Children In Need and For Our Kids' Sake trip to an amusement park.

This year, the club responded to the financial needs of Holly Place, the facility on South Potomac Street in Hagerstown that provides assisted- living services for low-income clients. The facility has faced the possibility of closing due to funding issues.

There are 15 residents in the 15-bed facility.

Members of the community filled the Women's Club auditorium, dining room and both parlors for the April 22 benefit.

As a result, the club donated $1,003 to Holly Place.
