OAKHURST – This month the local charitible organization Helping One Woman (HOW) will help many.
The ladies of HOW will gather on Wednesday, Oct. 15 at 6 p.m. at the Hitching Post for a fun evening set to benefit fire stations in Oakhurst, Ahwahnee, Bass Lake, and Cedar Valley.
The money raised will be divided equally between the four stations, say organizers.
HOW team chief Donna Dozier said the group is still requesting donations for the raffle.
“If you have something to give you may drop it off at the Parlor Salon behind Pete’s in Oakhurst,” says Dozier. She also brings news that the current organizational team is stepping down and they are looking for an enthusiastsic new group to take over and keep HOW Oakhurst running smoothly.
“It has been an honor to be a part of our chapter since it began in 2012,” Dozier adds. “We have made some wonderful friends and met some amazing women. We will always treasure this time and support HOW Oakhurst. Now, we need a new team to take over and carry our chapter forward. If you are interested in joining in the fun please let us know.”
HOW is a nonprofit women’s organization that has a monthly dinner to honor a woman that has suffered devastating loss. Each guest puts $10 in a bowl. At the end of dinner the money is gifted to the woman being honored. Another woman is then chosen from suggestions of the guests to be honored with the next month’s dinner.
The mission of HOW is simple: “To help a Woman in her time of need and loss. To reach out and support women of our community.”
