Woman’s Club of Greenwich honors philanthropists at annual tea

At the 2014 Philanthropy Awards on March 20,  more than 11 local organizations were the lucky recipients of grants and scholarships from the Woman’s Club of Greenwich.

Awards were distributed to the following groups: Call-A-Ride, Greenwich Adult Day Care, Greenwich Campership Program, Greenwich Scholarship Association, Greenwich Symphony Young People’s Concerts, Greenwich Lions Club and Neighbor to Neighbor. After the awards were distributed, attendees enjoyed an array of elegant tea sandwiches and a sweets buffet, prepared by the Woman’s Club Social Committee under the leadership of Pat Giovinco.

Diane Larson, Vice President of Philanthropies for the Woman’s Club of Greenwich, thanked all of the club members “who tirelessly dedicated their time and effort to fundraising — in order to make these awards possible.”

She also reminded everyone in attendance that “philanthropy is the main mission of The Woman’s Club of Greenwich.”

Nancy York, Philanthropy Co-Chair of The Woman’s Club Gardeners, presented grants to the following organizations: Audubon Summer Campership Program, Federated Garden Clubs of Connecticut Scholarship Program, Greenwich Youth Conservation Project and Putnam Cottage Herb Garden Maintenance.

Juliet Schnur, a 2014 Board of Director of The Greenwich Scholarship Association, accepted five scholarships for deserving young ladies. She shared that the recipients of these scholarships have met the following criteria “need, service to the greater Greenwich community, an interest in helping to finance their own education as well as high academic achievement evidenced by their GPA.”

These five scholarships will be distributed at the Greenwich High School Award ceremony in June.
