Our annual Holiday dinner will take place on Tuesday, December 17 at 5:30 p.m. at Plantation Golf & Country Club. All of our members, friends and supporters of our organization are invited to attend.
The menu will include a salad and choice of Dill Rubbed Salmon with Creamy Dill on the side or Steak Medallions with caramelized onion demi. Both will be served with roasted potatoes and seasonal vegetable medley.
The cost of the Holiday dinner is $25.00 if paying at the door or $26.00 if paying via PayPal.
This year, we will be collecting gift cards or gift items for low income seniors from the Friendship Center. We hope you will consider donating even a $10.00 - $15.00 gift card to a movie theatre, restaurant, hair or nail salon or gas station. With your help we can brighten the holidays for many seniors in need.

The Business and Professional Women of Englewood/Venice under the direction of Joyce McCaffrey and Morina Chmielak organized the Annual Wine Tasting event at the Venice Art Center on October 25th to raise funds for scholarships for adult women and support our Local Organization.
We were given the opportunity to purchase tickets to take home baskets as well as lovely jewelry and handbags which were beautifully decorated and displayed by Morina which added to the festive and giving attitude.
The tables of appetizers donated from local restaurants and also food lovingly prepared by our own members were overflowing. At the end of the evening, there were plenty of goodie bags to take home and relive the fun filled fundraising evening.
The talented Wanda added beautiful music to the evening for our listening pleasure while we sipped on four different wines. We could support the cause additionally by purchasing a glass, a bottle or receive a discount when buying a case.
Special thanks to the major sponsors, neighbors who attended and friends and spouses. It was delightful to share the evening with some of our former members who continue to support the fundraiser for scholarships and the Englewood/Venice Local Organization.
One of the women who had received a scholarship attended the event and spoke of how the scholarship has changed her life and is looking forward to working with others suffering from dyslexia. She has become an empowered woman who will in true empower others.
Thank you, Joyce for creating this event and Thank You to Everyone who attended this event and supported in your own special way.
