TREASURE ISLAND – The Treasure Islettes annual HollyFest fall fundraiser is planned for Saturday, Nov. 10, at the Treasure Island Community Center.
Doors open at 10 a.m. The $15 admission includes a noon lunch and opportunities for shopping for baked goods, jewelry, and books/puzzles tables. Drawings for prizes donated by local merchants, and the famous directors’ theme baskets of goodies are annual highlights.
Ticket sales are ongoing. All reservations and special needs must be confirmed with Carol Lee at 360-9181, the committee co-chair for the event, or Maudie Gurak at 360-5078.
The Treasure Islettes, a women’s club founded in 1955, has six committees specifically dedicated to neighborhood beautification, scholarship, and service to the community.
The club’s beautification committee hosts HollyFest, which enables annual contributions and pledges to community improvement. In the spring of 2012, $5,000 was donated toward the replacement of the Treasure Island Fire Department first response truck. Over the years the Treasure Islettes has donated cash and equipment valued at more than $800,000. The club meets September through May at the TI Community Center, typically on the fourth Monday of the month at 7 p.m.
