Cards for a Cause Fundraiser: The club voted to proceed with this new fundraiser.  There are three different box sets available.  Two of the sets come with all occasions, birthday, sympathy, baby, get well, blank and one set is strictly kids cards.   Each box contains 30 hand-made cards, is reusable, and comes with dividers.  The club has purchased the box sets for $17 apiece and will be selling them for $30 a box- profiting $195 on the sale of 15 boxes.  Any club member can take orders for the cards- very similar to how Girl Scout cookie sales work.  Please make checks out to Riverbend Benders. sign up sheet Check out the link to Big Kid Powder sports http://bigkidpowersports.com/
