To provide funding for our community service programs, the CV Women’s Group conducts and sponsors fund raising events in the community including:
Father Daughter Dance
Every Spring, we host a special evening of dancing and entertainment for Gull Lake area girls from Young Fives through 5th grade and their escorts. Proceeds are used throughout the year to help improve our community. Held at the High School in March. This event is our second largest fund-raiser.
Richland Art Fair
The annual Art Fair is our largest fund-raising project, and features a variety of fine art work and original handcrafts from artists from all over Michigan and the Midwest region. Profits from the Art Fair fund several of our programs, which provide food and clothing as well as medical, dental, and educational support to Gull Lake community members in need throughout the year. Held every year on the 3rd Saturday of July at the Richland Village square.
Children in need get to help shop for their very own, brand-new, warm outerwear right before the weather turns cold. Event occurs 3rd or 4th Saturday in October.
The Community Volunteers help make the holidays brighter for families in need by providing clothing, educational toys, food, and personal care products during December. Local businesses, organizations, and individuals help by sponsoring families and donating funds for items to be purchased for the families. Held 2nd or 3rd Saturday of December.
