West Shore Aware Hosts 12th Annual Awards Presentation Luncheon & Donates $49,000 To Six Local Organizations
West Shore Aware, a philanthropic organization of gay men, women and their supporters living in the Saugatuck/Douglas communities, held its 12th annual awards presentation luncheon on Thursday, September 24, at Alley’s Classic American Diner, in Douglas.
Due to the success of this year’s fundraising efforts, including the 12th annual White Party held last month, West Shore Aware was able to donate $49,000 to six local 501 (c) (3) organizations.
At the awards luncheon, representatives from the six charities were presented with checks.
Out Center, Wishbone Pet Rescue, Sylvia’s Place, Wings of Hope Hospice, National Marriage Challenge, and the Center for Women in Transition.
The six groups were selected from 15 charitable organizations who applied for funding this year. After its membership voted, the Aware Board of Directors confirmed and announced the top six winners in June.
The Aware Board extend their deep appreciation to all who contributed to their fundraising efforts this year.
