Fundraisers are also “fun-raisers”

Inspired by the British movie, “Calendar Girls,” twenty 55+ women from Gold Canyon have created their own “nearly nude” 13-month calendar for 2019. The project has already sold out of the first run of 250 calendars – but more are on the way! All funds raised will be donated to Banner/MD Anderson Cancer Center.

The calendar is just one of many activities the group has organized to raise money for cancer research. Their first year working together, they coordinated a walk for cancer. Since then, their activities have diversified to include bake sales, dances, wine walks and more. Their “fun-raisers,” as they like to call the activities, have raised more than $30,000 annually. Last year’s total of $36,000 was matched by an anonymous donor.

If you are interested in ordering calendars ($15 each) or contributing to the cause, please contact Cathy Callahan at:    cathy-cal@hotmail.com.
