Proceeds from the event will benefit Neighborhood House, Dutton Farm and Paint a Miracle. The funds from the event will help to support specific projects for the recipients:
- Neighborhood House will use the funds to aid their Capital Campaign Program for their new facility located at 1720 S. Livernois and provide the Rochester Junior Woman’s Club with the unique and historic opportunity of having a Counseling Room named upon behalf of the club.
- Dutton Farm plans to use funds to expand their integrated employment program. They want to lay the groundwork so that businesses understand the benefits of hiring people who have developmental disabilities and to see people with disabilities embraced in the integrated workforce.
- Paint a Miracle will use the grant funds to provide scholarships for low-income individuals to attend Paint a Miracle art classes. Paint a Miracle accepts all disabling conditions no matter how significant the challenge. They also accept participants regardless of their ability to pay.
For more than 60 years, the Rochester Junior Woman’s Club has been proud to contribute to the growth and vitality of the community through volunteer service and donation of funds to local charities and organizations.
