The GFWC Beverly Shelton Girls Town Club will host their annual benefit luncheon/card party/silent auction from noon to 3 p.m. June 5 at Westminster Hall, 417 W. Lexington Ave., Independence.
The cost is $5 per person and all proceeds go to Missouri Girls Town, a home for abused girls in Kingdom City, Mo.
The club was organized 37 years ago for the sole purpose of supporting Missouri Girls Town, and through the years has raised thousands of dollars. In 2008, the GFWC Clubs in Missouri faced the gigantic challenge of raising $120,000 for a state mandated new sewer system.
That challenge was met and the clubs raise $123,000.
This benefit is open to the public, but reservations are required. For more information or to register, contact Kathy Palermo at 816-373-6821.
