Dear Daughters of Erin Members,

Happy Summer! I hope you're enjoying time with friends and family! We are preparing for the 2021 Cardo's Charity Golf Scramble. We are very pleased to be one of the charitable organizations which will benefit from this event. Please review the update below. There is a big need for golf outing raffle prizes. We appreciate donations!

The Irish Quilt Wall Hanging Raffle is underway, see the photo and information below.

The best news is that we will be able to return to St. Christopher's in September for our meetings. It will be wonderful to see you then!


We are grateful to Cardo's Pizza & Tavern and friends of the Lynch family for allowing us to partner with them on their 2021 golf outing! We appreciate sharing the opportunity for the outing to benefit the Daughters of Erin and the Pickerington Food Pantry! The outing is Saturday, July 10.

We are in need of door prizes (focused for men - items like golf, bbq or gardening equipment, gift cards, tickets for a sporting event, etc.) for the outing. If you, someone you know or a business is interested in donating, please contact Sharon Selby at 614-595-2010.

If you didn't sponsor a hole for the outing, contact Sharon Selby ASAP, there may still be time to order a sign.

We are raffling off an Irish Quilt Wall Hanging this year. Tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20. Special thanks for the beautiful, hand-made quilt donated and made by Carolyn Collins. The raffle drawing will be held at the September meeting.

Contact Sharon Tantes to purchase tickets by calling 614-361-8590.

We are collecting socks for the homeless of all ages. If you see them on sale, please share with members. Cheryl Costello is coordinating a way for you to purchase online or drop off to her. Watch for updates this summer.

We will be collecting pajamas for children for the The Brian Muha Memorial Foundation, Inc./The Run The Race Club in the fall. Watch for sales on pajamas for children and pajama pants and t-shirts for teens this summer.

Please contact Cheryl at 614-774-8879 for pick-up or drop-off arrangements.

We want to celebrate big birthdays, work announcements, honors, etc. Please share the details, so we can share and celebrate with you.
