Dear Friends,

Thank you for your generous donation in support of our Friends and Family Holiday Party. All proceeds from this party benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities New York Metro and will ensure that the House can reach its goal of providing the highest quality services to the families of seriously ill children while keeping costs to them at a minimum.

Our House was built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the health of their child - not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next eal, or where they will lay their head at night. We believe that when a child if hospitalized, the love and support of family is as powerful as the strongest medicine prescribed. Through your participation, you become our partner in this effort to provide for the children who rely on The House That love Built every single day of the year. 

Please know that you rhave the sincere appreciation of the children and families who depend upon us as their "home away from home" in a time of great need.

On behalf of the Allendale Woman's Club (AWC), we would like to thank you for your generous donation and support in making the Allendale Woman's Club's 2019 Fashion Show, Fashion with Compassion, such a success. 

The Allendale Woman's Club did not provide any goods or services in return for this contribution.

By becoming a sponsor, sending a support message or donating to our basket raffle, you helped BVMI provide free primary and preventive medical care to low-income working people in Bergen County without insurance or the means to pay for care. We are pleased that we have been able to direct our fundraising efforts toward improving the health and well-being of the community.

Thank you again for your support of the Allendale Woman's Club and its charitable initiatives.

Dear Benefactor,


We were asked to secure donations for gift baskets to be raffled at the St. Mary's "Sundae Funday" event. Going door to door was not something we were looking forward to, for we recognize that you are inundated with appeals. However, your pleasant reaction to our request made it easy!

Your donation added lots of excitement to the bidding and raised a significant amount of funds for those in need.

Acknowledgement of your business was well publicized at the event.

Thank you for your generosity.
