Local P.E.O. chapter again sponsors dinner auction

Angie Denahan

Last year’s dinner auction held at SaddleBrooke HOA One Vistas raised more than $10,000 to help deserving women further their educational efforts. This year’s event will again be held at Vistas.

January 29, 2017 is the date! Tickets are $40 per person, which includes dinner. Attendance will be limited to 180 guests. Check for ticket availability with P.E.O. Chapter FF, the host of the event.

A woman who is unable to complete her college studies because she is a single mom who is financially strapped or a woman who is unable to complete her graduate studies because she has to work to supplement her income or a high school senior who is seeking financial aid. These are just some of the women who benefit from the financial assistance that P.E.O. (Philanthropic Educational Organization) has to offer to deserving women. P.E.O. offers these women help through grant, scholarships and low interest loans at two percent.

Chapter FF is dedicated to enhancing the mission of P.E.O., a philanthropic organization where women celebrate the advancement of women; educate women through scholarships, grants, awards, loans and stewardship of Cottey College; and motivate women to achieve their highest aspirations.

Save the date – January 29, 2017

Our live auction featuring our charming auctioneer Kerry Wolfe will include a library dinner for eight donated by Vivian Timian, general manager of HOA One, an original Navajo wall hanging with the book illustrating the artwork, original metal ironwork for your garden, golf at Stone Canyon and much, much more!
