Club plans fundraiser for shelters

Clean out your closets and bring clean "wearables" to a luncheon Thursday for spouse-abuse shelters.

That's the annual appeal made by the Lutz-Land O'Lakes Woman's Club for this week's benefit at the Lutz Community Center, 100 First Ave. NW in Lutz's old downtown. The club is seeking clothing and other necessities for women and children of all sizes.

The event begins at 9:30 a.m. Visitors will be allowed to buy any of the items, with the shelters getting the money instead of the clothing.

Proceeds from the $4 luncheon, at noon, also will go to the shelters _ the Spring in Tampa, the Pasco Salvation Army Shelter, Dade City's Sunrise Shelter and Boy's Anchor House in Winter Haven.

Auralee Buckingham, a member of the club's public affairs committee, said the event is held each summer to help resupply the shelters between their big donation seasons during the holidays.
