2022 Cardinal Strut Race:  Club members participated in the 2022 Cardinal Strut Race on March 19,2022, at Long Leaf Park. The race is a fundraiser to provide financial assistance to “Children’s Cancer Journey.” The WWC donated eight boxes of glass straws with cleaning brushes for a raffle drawing to help raise funds for the cause. These glass straws are environmentally reusable and recyclable and were very much appreciated. Ann Kirby, Harvin Quidas, Dorothy Hollis, Vicki Daughtery, Fay Hall, Carol Query, and Ida Newton worked the table to pass out shirts to the 655 entrees for the event.

This event was a safe, very rewarding, and a most enjoyable event to reach out and participate in and to “Make A Difference” with the Wilmington, New Hanover Co., Pender Co., and Brunswick Co. families who face many challenges through such an emotional time for children with cancer and their families. Club members met several cancer survivors who participated in the event along with their parents and friends. Making a difference and helping women and children were achieved and are always part of the WWC’s goals.


Donations to Oakdale Cemetery:  During several months in 2020, members of the Wilmington Woman's Club Environmental-Conservation Program Committee collected coins to purchase three oak trees, which were planted at Oakdale Cemetery. Eric Kozen provided interesting historical information about this beautiful resting place into which he puts so much effort to maintain and preserve it.


Donations to Humane Society:  During the summer of 2020, members of the Wilmington Woman's Club Environmental-Conservation Program Committee collected and donated seven large bags of contributions to the New Hanover Humane Society.

Donation to Friends of Oakdale Cemetery:  Members of the Wilmington Woman's Club presented a donation of $300.00 to the "Friends of Oakdale Cemetery" organization. The organization will use the donation to replenish dogwoods and other trees in the cemetery. Club members: Fay Hall, Mamie Hutnik, and Tess Rooney. Oakdale Cemetery Superintendent: Eric Kozen.


Donations to Hospice Counseling Services:  On Tuesday, June 25th, 2019, club member, Fay Hall (center), delivered items to Lorraine Perry and Marty, Hospice Camp instructors of the Hospice Counseling Services, for their summer camp program.

During this program, the children create a glass bulb container in honor of a loved one they have lost. The WWC Conservation Committee provided 12 air plants, hanger glass bulbs, jars of colored pebbles, and directions for campers to care for the containers after they completed their project. A few of the glass bulb containers are displayed on the ledge in the picture.
