LOJWC awards funds to charities
The Lake Oswego Junior Women's Club just completed awarding grants for its 2006 to 2007 year.
Checks totaling $100,200 were written and sent to 39 different metro area charities. The donations included six scholarships to Lake Oswego and Lakeridge high school seniors.
The largest grant ($16,000) went to Community Transitional School.
LOJWC is a volunteer non-profit organization founded in 1974. The group's three major fund-raising events - Holiday Home Tour, Lake Run and the Helping Handbags - have helped raise more than $1.6 million for women's and children's charities.
