ROWC_Walk

Get your walking shoes ready for the Royal Oak Woman’s Club’s Step Out to Help Out Virtual Walk-a-thon to help save the group’s historic clubhouse.

Participants can register beginning Monday, October 25, with the virtual walk-a-thon taking place November 1-14.  The group encourages the community to come together and help raise funds to save the historic clubhouse by asking participants to take a step for every dollar pledged in their name.  So gather up your friends, family, and neighbors for a fun and easy virtual walk-a-thon.

Please register via the below link and keep an eye out in your email for a confirmation letter.

The clubhouse has served as a community hub for public and private events, local high school scholarship programs, a gathering place to support organizations such as Blessings in a Backpack, Royal Oak Public Library, Ruth Ellis, Wigs 4 Kids, Guiding Harbor, Gilda’s Club Metro Detroit, and Sanctum House. In addition to collecting gifts and signing holiday cards for vets, knitting caps for babies in the PICU at Beaumont, collecting goods for Operation Smile, Soles4Souls, and Welcome Inn, plus many, many more.

As the oldest building in Royal Oak, the clubhouse was frequently rented out for events and meetings.  However with the pandemic that all changed with rentals being suspended.  Rentals had previously covered the $3,000 a month it costs the club to preserve the historic clubhouse, putting a significant strain on the philanthropic group.

We are asking you and the community to help the ROWC save our history, so moving forward we can give back and help in return.

Throughout the year, the ROWC hosts and participates in different events to both raise money for charitable causes and to celebrate the special privilege of working together with our members as volunteers.
