Making a Difference

Fall is in the air, and the ladies of Edmond Women’s Club are extending their hospitality with a preview party of “This New House 2006” on October 27. Local merchants will feature unique wares to accent home decorations by area designers and twenty-five percent of all proceeds from the sale of featured items, including furniture, window treatments, jewelry, and hand-made throws will go back to the community through the charity’s active volunteer efforts.

“Not only will you be able to tour this beautiful home and shop the boutique, but there will be a fabulous party and dancing to the sounds of the band, ‘Souled Out,’” said club member and committee chair, Tracy Sadler.

Live music and catered food are elements for any wonderful evening, but the added excitement of a drawing for a 2007 Mercedes C230 is sure to make this a memorable event for the lucky winner.

Edmond Women’s Club is a non-profit organization composed of more than 225 busy mothers and career women. The club paired up with builders, Don Walters and Jill Horton, who helped make the party possible by lending a space that would host guests and serve as a showcase for emerging businesses and interior design talent.

The Edmond Women’s Club has collected more than $2.3 million since its founding in 1983, the majority through donations and fundraisers, all of which has been returned to the city’s residents through Edmond’s own relief agencies like the Hope Center and Breakfast on Boulevard.

However, members do more than just requisition funds and attend meetings. Club regulations stipulate that they also volunteer their time at sponsored agencies. Whether
