Viola Blythe fundraiser
Submitted By the Viola Blythe Center
The Viola Blythe Center, a non-profit agency, serves the Tri-Cities area (Newark, Fremont and Union City) with emergency food and clothing. Last year the Center served nearly 11,000 people. This was the highest number on clients served in the history of the Center. The agency is supported by local businesses, churches, schools, organizations, and individuals. We feed people year around, distributing thousands of pounds of fresh produce each week to those in need and are always in need of food donations. Due to the downturn in the economy, the Viola Blythe Center struggles to continue to feed and serve this community. One way to bring in additional funds to purchase needed food items is through fundraisers.
We are very excited about our upcoming fundraiser, a one day casino bus trip with Rosie's Tours to the Feather Falls Casino in Oroville in Butte County. The bus will pick up riders on Saturday, November 3 at 7:30 a.m. at the Newark Pavilion (6430 Thornton Ave., Newark). The bus departs from the Pavilion at 8 a.m. sharp. There will be bingo, raffles, an auction, and refreshments on the bus.
The cost is $30 per person with $10 cash back on arrival. The Viola Blythe Center receives 50 percent from each ticket sold. Reserve your seat now by contacting 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 Blyth Center and join the fun!
