Dear Friends,

Welcome back. We are so excited to announce the return of our event.
On June 9, 2022, the Women’s Board of Catholic Charities of Summit County will host its 33rd Annual Luncheon/Style Show Fundraiser with Silent Auction and Raffle at Guy’s Party Centre, 500 E. Waterloo Road, Akron, Ohio. Proceeds from this event benefit programs which address the societal needs of children and families, persons with disabilities, older adults, and the poor in Summit County.

In the interest of safety, we are limiting attendance this year so please return your reservation form promptly. We will be following any CDC guidelines that are in place on the day of the event.

In 2020 the event netted over $16,000. In addition, with the cancelation of the event in 2021, many of you made generous donations to our Bags of Love program instead. This raised close to $7000 to make Christmas special for families in need.

As a loyal supporter of the agency, we hope you will consider purchasing the enclosed raffle tickets ($1.00 each or 6 for $5.00) and/or making a donation to defray our expenses. Better yet, please join us for an enjoyable day by attending the event! Any level of support will be most appreciated.

Please return your ticket stubs, reservation form, and/or donation with your check in the enclosed envelope. Reservations are required for this event. To ensure your attendance please respond as soon as possible and no later than May 13th 2022.

Thank you for your support of this worthy cause. May God bless you for your generosity. Please let us know if you would like to be removed from this mailing list.

Bags of Love

Each December, our Women's Board of Catholic Charities Summit County adopts families in need, providing gifts, household items, and grocery store gift cards to help provide Christmas joy. This is our Bags of Love Program.

For 2020, we were unable to gather for shopping and wrapping so we provided gift cards only. The gift cards were for grocery stores and discount department stores so that recipients could shop for items themselves. Given this, we were in critical need of financial donations.

Our faithful and loyal annual luncheon attendees and sponsors, our Women’s Board members, and the community rallied around our need and we were able to raise over $11,000. These funds were used in their entirety to provide gift cards to 30 families for a total of 118 people. Thank you to everyone for the generous donations. You have provided a Merry Christmas to many needy families in our community.

If you would like to donate for the 2021 Bags of Love program please make checks payable to Women’s Board of CCC/SC and send to:
