The GFWC Clearwater Community Woman's Club grant committee members Betsy Dort, Nancy Hughes, Martie Henderson, Ellie Lee, and Alice Thalhaimer have been flooded with grant applications from area non-profit organizations pleading for funds to help their organizations survive and thrive in today’s challenging economy.

The event will not only highlight the winners of the Daisy Grants but will the feature fabulous fashions by Stein Mart. Using the theme of this year’s show, Pretty Woman, Al Ruggiero and the Bunny Ott Dancers will put on a musical show. Show chair, Georgia Jensen, states that, even in light of the economy, area merchants have donated numerous items worth thousands of dollars, which attendees will have a chance to win during the event.
