Although COVID-19 has curtailed many of its traditional meetings, the Riverwood Women’s Club of Del Webb Ponte Vedra (DWPV) recently commemorated National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with a drive-by and mail-in fundraiser to help support the First Coast’s News Buddy Bus.
Ladies from Canopy Oaks, a neighborhood within DWPV, and the club’s board of officers coordinated the endeavor. They even “deputized” a few husbands to build Buddy Bus replicas to draw donors to the donation sites. This two-day October fundraiser attracted donors by car, golf cart, bicycle and foot. All were welcome to free Buddy Check 12 kits filled with vital information about this wide-spread disease that touches so many of families.
Their efforts collected a total of $5,800 thanks to generous donations from members, fellow residents, families and friends.
