We pride ourselves in doing as much as we can for as many women and children as we can locally as well as globally. Zonta Club of Chatham Kent raises money through various fundraising events such as our Card Making Extravaganzas, Purses with a Purpose, Garden and Pond Tour and Bottle Drive. All of the money we raise is donated to various causes throughout Chatham-Kent such as the Chatham Kent Women’s Centre, Sexual Assault Crisis Centre, St. Clair College scholarships, CK Public Library literacy projects, local school sports teams, local house league sports teams, CK Health Alliance Medical Equipment, Big Brothers Big Sisters Organization, International Women’s Day (Zonta Rose Day), Zonta Says No campaign to end violence against women and girls, personal requests, as well as Zonta International. Please see the drop down menu in Projects and Services to learn more about our events and services.
