'Womenade' gives $4,000 to area schools

Womenade Helping Hearts, Inc. is a group with a unique concept: "If life gives you lemons, make lemonade. If life gives you women, make Womenade."

This year, in addition to the many ways the organization was able to help the community, they also adopted a new mission statement: "Providing resources for youth in a non-judgmental and dignified manner."

At their First Annual Golf Tournament, Womenade managed to raise over $7,000. Organizers Becky Kemling and Sarah O'Kane helped to make the event a huge success. There were over 30 hole sponsors for the event.

Womenade also held open house coffee fund raisers in August at The Wild Goose in Perham, Mills Creamery in New York Mills, and at the Cyber Café in Wadena.

The group gave $4,000 to each of the three area public schools (Perham, New York Mills, and Wadena).

Their next project is a website, which will be up and running soon.

Womenade welcomes donations throughout the year. Please send tax deductible donations to: Womenade, P.O. Box 466, Perham, MN 56573.
