Viola Blythe Fundraiser
Submitted By Debbie Caravalho
The Viola Blythe Center, a non-profit agency that serves the Tri-cities area (Newark, Fremont and Union City) with emergency food and clothing, served nearly 11,000 people last year. This was the highest number on clients served in the history of the Center. Although supported by local businesses, churches, schools, organizations and Individuals, we feed people all year 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 is struggling to continue to feed and serve this Community. One way to bring in additional funds to purchase needed food items is by holding fundraisers and we are very excited about the newest fundraiser for this year.
The Viola Blythe Center is hosting a day bus trip with Rosie's Tours to the "Black Oak Casino" on Saturday, April 7. The bus will be pick up riders at 6:30 a.m. at the Newark Pavilion- 6430 Thornton Avenue in Newark and depart at 7 a.m. sharp. The cost for each person is $30 and includes a $20 of Casino Coupons, bingo, raffles, an auction and refreshments on the bus.
Join the fun! Viola Blythe Center will receive 50% of all tickets sold.
