The Lyme-Old Lyme Junior Women’s Club (LOLJWC) is pleased to announce the organizations that have been chosen to receive funding from the proceeds of the club’s annual Art Show and Auction fundraising event for 2013.
The selection of recipients was determined by membership vote at the LOLJWC December meeting. The recipients for 2013 are: The Lyme Art Association, Child and Family Agency of Southeastern Connecticut, Safe Futures (formerly the Women’s Center of Southeastern CT), The Old Lyme Phoebe Griffin Noyes Library and the Lyme Ambulance Association.
Exact dollar amount awards will be based on the overall proceeds from the sale and will be distributed to the organizations based on their original request.
This is the 26th year that the LOLJWC has been helping to fund organizations and projects in the region with the proceeds from the annual art show. Through the years, hundreds of thousands of dollars has been raised to benefit everything from local library computer programs, Lyme Youth Services Bureau, local fire and ambulance departments and various other service organizations.
The 26th annual LOLJWC Art Show will be held April 26th and 27th and will return to its previous venue at the Lyme Art Association. An opening night reception will be held on Friday evening, featuring live music and a silent auction. The art from the LOLJWC show will remain on display through June 9th at the LAA and art sold from this show will continue to generate funds to support the beneficiaries during this time.
