 $1500 scholarships were awarded to seven non-traditional students, women ages 32-50, whose life circumstances had previously prevented them from pursuing a  college degree,  to help them achieve their goals.
$20,000 was raised at our annual Women in Power luncheon to support our local community service projects.
Through our on going Blankee Bee community service project we have provided over 250  Blankees to at risk Pre-Schoolers, residents of a local nursing home, patients undergoing chemotherapy and as an arts and craft project for Camp Maripossa campers. 
We also offer two puppet programs one for pre-schoolers on diversity and the other for elementary children about abuse and bullying.  
We continue to present programs to increase awareness to teens and adults  about human trafficking and on teen dating violence.
