How else can I help support WCRB?
Whether you become a member or not, we welcome your help in raising funds for specific community projects or to maintain our historic clubhouse. Our clubhouse was built in 1922 specifically for the Woman’s Club of Redondo Beach and is on the National Registry of Historic Places. It also provides a welcoming environment for youth group meetings and events. Large, old structures like ours are in constant need of repairs, maintenance and occasional updates. Here are other ways to contribute to this gem of Redondo Beach or to the many causes we support:
o Donate via Venmo (@WCRedondoBeach) or by mailing a check to WCRB, 400 S. Broadway, Redondo Beach, CA 90277.
Please use the memo/notes area to let us know if your donation is for a specific WCRB project or cause. Receipts are available on request.
o Buy tickets to attend our fundraisers and events.
o Donate goods or services for a silent auction fundraiser or for clubhouse upkeep.
o Donate gently used items to our annual rummage sale in early October.
o Consider renting the clubhouse for your business meetings or classes, or for an upcoming party, celebration or other special event. (See Clubhouse Rental tab for more information about our clubhouse.)
o If you have a special talent, knowledge or skill you would like to share with us, call us to tell us about it for consideration as a future luncheon program/presentation. Our members appreciate being entertained or learning new things during the luncheon portion of our monthly meetings.
