Card party to help local students

The Hot Springs Village (HSV) Women's Club will host its Annual Scholarship Card Party from 12:30 to 4 p.m., Tuesday, January 22, at the Coronado Center in Hot Springs Village.  All proceeds will go toward providing scholarships for graduating senior students from local area high schools.  In 2012, there were three recipients, each receiving a $1,000 scholarship.

Tickets for the HSV Card Party are $6 per person and include all different kinds of desserts, coffee, tea and door prizes offered throughout the afternoon.  Many who attend this event play bridge, but all types of cards and games are encouraged.  Participants should plan to gather in groups of four or more.

Prizes include gifts provided by HSV Women’s Club members, as well as Gift Certificates from area businesses.   An additional Raffle for cash prizes also will be available.  Raffle tickets will be sold at the door for $1 each or six for $5.  Fifty percent of the monies taken in for this drawing go toward the scholarships and 50 percent will be returned as cash prizes during the afternoon. 

According to Dolly Madden, chair of the 2013 HSV Card Party, “Tickets are on sale now and only a limited number of spaces are available. Those wishing to attend should plan to purchase their tickets as soon as possible.” 

Tickets may be purchased by contacting any HSV Women's Club member or by calling Madden at 922-4920.
