The Women’s Club of Costa Rica will hold its used book and bake sale Jan. 19.
This is the fundraiser where the Women’s Club generates money for its various educational programs.
Said the club: All proceeds will go to community programs funded by the Women’s Club of Costa Rica, a philanthropic organization supporting education through scholarships and development of school libraries for children in Costa Rica.
The event is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Pan-American School, 300 meters south of El Rodeo Hotel/Restaurant, San Antonio de Belén.
The club said that visitors can browse for gently used books, DVDs, CDs and current magazines: treasures that you always wanted but never got round to purchasing, or that you never even knew existed. They can nibble on home-made sweets while you shop, and then take home some delicious, freshly-baked goods along with your favorite authors and new finds.
The club also is interested in receiving donations of books, DVDs and CDs in advance of the event, it said. It said it also will accept board games, puzzles and current magazines in good condition and even monetary donations.
Founded in 1940, the Women’s Club is one of the longest continuously operating community service organizations in Costa Rica. The club has an English-speaking membership of 300 women of all ages and nationalities representing 25 countries of the world.
