BASS LAKE — The nonprofit group Helping One Woman (HOW) will convene for the first time this year on Wednesday, Jan. 17 at Ducey’s, to honor Lauren Steinglass. The evening of food, fundraising and friendship begins at 6 p.m. and takes place upstairs in the bar and grill.
Lauren is a single mother of two beautiful children, James and Emma, whose life was forever changed when she lost her third child, five months into the pregnancy, last November, just three days before her older son’s fifth birthday. Lauren has struggled to maintain normalcy for her little family, while grieving for her child Athena. Through ups and downs, she has always done what’s best for her children and fought to keep them out of the chaos that surrounds their lives. She looks to the future, hoping to return to school to better herself for her family.
Please RSVP to Tokens at (559) 658-5428 with the number in your party. Ducey’s on the Lake is part of The Pines Resort, located at 39255 Marina Drive in Bass Lake. Phone (559) 683-7917.
HOW meets monthly for an uplifting evening in honor of one deserving woman who receives the community’s support when they need it the most. Recipients of HOW are always a woman who is going through a time of irreplaceable loss or who has been through a period of loss within the last 12 months. Irreplaceable loss is defined as a catastrophic loss which cannot be recovered.
Those participating in the HOW benefit will offer $10 or more as a suggested donation for Lauren and pay for their own dinner. Proceeds from the event go directly to Lauren at the end of the evening.
HOW says that “one woman with $10 can buy another woman lunch. Ten women giving $10 can buy another woman’s groceries. One hundred women giving $10 can really make a difference in another woman’s life.”
Do you know a woman who is going through a time of irreplaceable loss? Bring her name to the next HOW meeting and nominate her to be the next recipient. “Remember that by helping one woman, we help one family and one community.”
