Light up the night for Simsbury! On Sunday, December 2, the Simsbury Junior Woman's Club (SJWC) will be holding their 3rd annual Simsbury Luminary Night to raise funds for the programs and projects of the Simsbury Junior Woman's Club. In just two years, Luminary Night has become the club's signature fundraiser, having raised $14,000 last year for the Department of Social Services, which was the largest single donation the department has ever received.
The SJWC is selling luminary kits which contain the components to create 10 luminaries, and asking that the candles be lit on Sunday, December 2, at 5:00 p.m. in a non-denominational celebration of the season.
Thanks to a generous donation from the Ensign-Bickford Foundation, the SJWC is able to donate 100% of the proceeds from the sale of luminary kits to various programs and projects within the community. A few of the projects funded by the SJWC in the past include the Simsbury High School Scholarship program, the creation of a new playground at Simsbury Farms, and of course, the Department of Social Services.
Members of the Simsbury Junior Woman's Club will be selling luminary kits for $15 this Saturday, November 17, from 9:00 - 3:00 at Fitzgerald's Foods, and kits are available for sale online anytime at www.simsburyjuniors.org. Thank you for your support!
