TREASURE ISLAND – The Treasure Islettes’ donations have added up over the years for the city of Treasure Island.

The local women’s organization has quietly been making an impact with improvements to the Treasure Island community for 59 years after being organized in 1955 to promote civic, social and community assistance.

Since its inception, the Islettes have donated approximately $955,615. A breakdown of the contributions includes:

• Scholarships, $402,065

• Youth Program and Recreation, $56,156

• Community Service and Charities, $75,910

One of its continuous fundraising events is bingo every Thursday evening at the Treasure Island Community Center.

Funds raised from these games benefit local scholarships. The games are open to the public.

Other events during the year include a luncheon and fashion show in March and Holly Fest in November.

These events are also held at the Treasure Island Community Center.

All members of the Treasure Islettes are volunteers. Meetings are held September through May on the fourth Monday of the month at 7 p.m. at the Community Center.

Membership is open to women who are residents and nonresidents of Treasure Island.
