This month, residents are invited to dine for a cause. The Hoover Service Club will host the third annual Hearts and Harmony Gala at 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 13 at the Hyatt Regency-The Wynfrey Hotel.
Tickets are $100 per person, $36 of which is tax-deductible. The event will feature the Hoover High School First Edition Jazz Band, Miss Alabama Jaime Nutter, a live and silent auction and more. Proceeds benefit local charities and college scholarships for Hoover City students.
The Hoover Service Club, a nonprofit organization for civic-minded women, was organized in May 1975 by Flora Mae Pike and 10 other women. The club donates to 21 different charitable organizations a year and today has approximately 170 members.
“All of our time is completely voluntary,” club member Jennifer Caton said. “The money that we raise, you can actually see that it makes a difference. And we want to keep growing.”
The main goals of the organization are to give aid to the needy in our community, to further education through scholarships and to recognize outstanding volunteer service in the community. Yearly projects include a Christmas gift-wrapping booth at Riverchase Galleria for Grace House Ministries and filling up Easter baskets for distribution by Green Valley Food Bank. The women also provide school supplies for foster children.
“It’s more rewarding to us than anything, because it gives us a feeling that we are doing something worthwhile,” club member Linda Wasden said. “And not only that but I have made some dear friends because of it.”
