WIN! A CHRISTMAS TO REMEMBER 2018
At 7:00 p.m. on Friday November 16, 2018, Town Crier Mark Molner rang out the Grand Lighting of eleven Christmas Trees in Fairview Mall St. Catharines. With his "Oyez! Oyez! Oyez!" resounding through the mall, he drew visitors to the opening of The May Court Club's 32nd Annual WIN A Christmas to Remember! which raises thousands of dollars every year for women and children, health and nutrition in the Niagara region.
Over three weeks, raffle tickets were sold to mall visitors for the tempting prizes on display including the eleven fully-decorated Christmas trees, seasonal decor, gifts for children, and other great prizes. Over $8,600 was raised by selling more than 4,000 tickets, and the grand total raised (including sponsorship and donations) was $15,931.46. Find out what happens to the money.
Our thanks go to our host and lead sponsor, Fairview Mall, and to all the fabulous donors and sponsors who contributed so generously to the success of A Christmas to Remember. Thanks also to May Courters and Friends of May Court who gave freely of their time during the preceding week to set up the display and staffed the display during the three weeks of ticket-selling.
AN IN-SHREDABLE EVENT!
On Saturday May 12, 2018, May Courters and their friends and family turned out in force for our first community paper shred for charity.
Visitors brought any waste paper containing confidential or personal information to the event and, for a small fee, we transferred the box-loads straight from their car trunk to the shredder, where the paper was immediately rendered into small pieces, ready for recycling.
Pen Financial Credit Union sponsored the event, Niagara Recycling provided their shredding van and staff, and the Region of Niagara provided the venue. Thanks to their great support and the hard work of the May Courters, their friends and families, we raised $2,000 for redistribution in the community next year in the form of grants to the causes May Court supports.
Thank you to everyone who brought paper for shredding, and we’re hoping to do it all again – so watch this space – and shred the word!
LADIES WHO LUNCH AND SHOP 2018
On Sunday April 8, 2018 over 200 women attended Ladies Who Lunch and Shop at the Holiday Inn & Suites, St. Catharines. Thirty vendors were on site for the three-hour event which included a buffet lunch, a silent auction and penny raffle. Fashion, jewellery, cooking aids, cosmetics, artwork, and chocolate were among the choices laid before our guests by the thirty artisanal and distinctive vendors attending the event.
The May Court Club of St. Catharines thanks all our guests for attending and giving the event such a great buzz. We’d also like to thank our sponsor Cooper Wealth Management, our volunteers from the DSBN and Friends of May Court who gave their time and effort so willingly, and all donors to the silent auction and penny raffle.
Many thanks to Leslie, Mary and Elaine, and the MCCSC event committee for all their tremendous work to make the day another success for our club – and for those who’ll benefit from the funds we raised.
