The Children’s Philanthropy section of The Woman’s Club of Rye will host its 13th annual Spring Boutique Wednesday, May 10 from 10-8 at Whitby Castle.

Co-chairs Jennifer Ham, Young Kim, and Alison Pugsley-Levine are excited to be heading up this event, just in time for Mother’s Day. The Boutique will feature over 30 vendors and raffle prizes. Lunch will be available at Whitby and you’re invited to enjoy an evening cash bar with hors d’oeuvres during ladies night out.

Bring your friends and shop for a cause. The Children’s Philanthropy helps make a difference in the lives of Rye’s children through support of local programs as well as by providing food gift cards for children in need.

See you May 10.

Every week Bread of Life, a Rye-based nonprofit, feeds 10,000 people around the county, from senior residents in the Town of Rye, to children in Port Chester, and a men’s center in White Plains. It redistributes food from area restaurants and grocery stores like Trader Joe’s. It’s a considerable undertaking.

Bread of Life is hosting a fundraiser at Serendipity Labs May 3 from 6:30-8:30. Tickets are $30 each.

This year’s Rye Historical Society luncheon was held in recognition of the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New York. Guest speaker Professor Emerita Barbara Winslow of Brooklyn College, CUNY presented a detailed history of the state suffrage movement and highlighted some of the courageous women who made this a reality three years before the United States passed the 19th Amendment.

 

More than a few good women were among the guests at the luncheon, held March 2 at American Yacht Club.
