SEMINOLE - The Philanthropic Educational Organization (P.E.O.) Chapter HK announced a successful Bunco party and luncheon fundraiser held recently. The proceeds help to fund educational scholarships, grants and loans for deserving women.
"We were delighted to raise almost $3,000 this year to help fund women's college educational needs," noted Anne Massey, chair of the event. "Since 1994 Chapter HK has assisted 27 local women with scholarships, grants and loans. Our 138-year old organization continues to focus on its mission of educating women and creating an environment where personal growth is encouraged and friendships are nurtured.
Anne Massey said, "We wish to thank the more than 120 ladies who attended our annual Bunco luncheon, and we especially thank all those who donated raffle gifts, door prizes and the delicious luncheon buffet. It was a fun afternoon and well worth the time and effort in order to help women of all ages fulfill their educational goals and dreams."
