Batavia Mothers' Club Foundation spring fundraisers support local organizations
Showing continued creativity and determination, the Batavia Mothers' Club Foundation continued to raise money this spring through various innovative fundraisers.
In addition to the yearly FoxTrot 5k/10k, which was all virtual this year, the club had two new fundraisers.
The first event was a Virtual Bingo event. Participants picked up bingo kits with some candy treats to use as markers. They were able to play with their own personal circle. There were a number of prizes raffled off to participants, including gift cards to Batavia-located enterprises. This event was enjoyed by many and raised over $1,600!
The second event was a "SomeBunny Loves You" campaign where families and neighbors ordered Easter treats and a stuffed animal friend to be delivered to their friends and loved ones. Excited bunny helpers hid eggs in participants' yards. This event raised almost $700.
The funds from these events allowed the Batavia Mothers' Club Foundation to provide funds to over 30 local community organizations.
The Batavia Mothers' Club Foundation thanks the participants for their ongoing support!
The nonprofit organization, founded in 1934, is dedicated to improving the quality of life for children in the Fox Valley area. Each year, the club donates $20,000 to $50,000 to local charities, including the CHIP IN Batavia and CASA Kane County, whose activities support this mission. The Batavia Mothers' Club Foundation is open to all mothers in the area who are interested in local philanthropic, service, and community activities.
The club is hosting a membership open house from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, June 1, at Bar Evolution, 27 N. River St. Learn how you can make lifelong friendships and help the community. A few members will be present to answer any questions and just enjoy a night out.
