Christmas Inspiration with a Cause
Since its inception in 1990, Zonta's Christmas House has been held on the weekend before Thanksgiving. For that Friday evening and Saturday, a house in the St Cloud area is decorated for Christmas by several local designers and stores. The house is then opened to the public for viewing. This year, the current pandemic raises some issues with the traditional Christmas House we have come to love. SO, this year we are FLIPPING the christmas house and inviting you to go to the decorators stores over the course of Tuesday, November 16th to Sunday November, 21st to get your punch card filled out to be entered to win prizes. The punch card also features great promotions on the back to area businesses. Funds raised from this fundraiser are distributed to Anna Marie's Alliance programs, Zonta International projects and local scholarships in the following areas:
~STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics
~Young women pursuing an MBA degree
~Young Women in Public Affairs
~Non-traditional student scholarships
Sponsorship's allow us to help cover the expenses involved in creating the Zonta Christmas House as well as increase our donations to our service projects.
