Viola Blythe Fundraiser
Submitted By Viola Blythe Center
The Viola Blythe Center is a non-profit agency that serves the Tri-Cities area (Newark, Fremont and Union City) with emergency food and clothing. Last year the Center served nearly 11,000 people, the highest number of clients served in its history. The agency is supported by local businesses, churches, schools, organizations, and individuals. We feed people year around and are always in need of food donations. We distribute thousands of pounds of fresh produce each week to those in need.
Due to the downturn in the economy, the Viola Blythe Center struggles to continue to feed and serve this community. One of the ways to bring in additional funds to purchase needed food items is by holding fundraisers. The newest fundraiser for this year is a day bus trip with Rosie's Tours to the Black Oak Casino on Saturday, April 7. There will be bingo, raffles, auction, and refreshments on the bus. The cost is $30 per person with $20 refunded back in Casino Coupons. The Viola Blythe Center receives 50 percent from each ticket sold.
Reserve your seat now by calling Debbie Caravalho at (510) 794-3437 or (510) 673-3016, or Pat Schiavone at (510) 304-2944. Make checks payable to: Viola Blythe Center, P.O. Box 362, Newark, CA 94560.
Please help the Viola Blythe Center and join the fun, fun, fun!
