The 27th Annual Benefit Extraordinaire for the West Side Catholic Center will be held on Sunday, March 8, at La Centre in Westlake.
The Friends of the West Side Catholic Center has been in existence for 27 years. The primary goal of this group is to support the Shelter at the West Side Catholic Center for women and their children in crisis. The Shelter is designed to be a protective setting where women who have experienced domestic violence or homelessness are taught skills which will enable them to become independent.
Shopping begins at 11 a.m., followed by a luncheon at 12:30, and additional shopping. Tickets are $45.00 per person and all proceeds from the event directly benefit the Shelter.
The boutique fills many rooms with jewelry, bead items, theme baskets, linens and a large selection of baked goods, garden arrangements, chocolate and pantry items, all made and donated by members of Friends. There is also a silent auction and Wheelbarrow of Wine raffle. An assortment of specialty wines called Club 92 will be available for purchase; these wines are highly rated at 92 points and above. For more information and reservations, please call 440-871-6681.
