Charity

Newcomers isn’t just a social activity club! Our membership is a talented, caring group of individuals and we want to share our talents with and give back to our community! Each year Newcomers selects a local charity as the beneficiary of the club’s fundraising activities. In years past we have hosted a family concert at the Tivoli Theatre performed by well-know artist Justin Roberts. We hold raffles, fundraising events and volunteer opportunities throughout the year. Each year we donate a portion of our proceeds to our selected charity for that year.

Ronald McDonald House

Our charity for 2016-2017 is Ronald McDonald House.  Ronald McDonald Homes serve to provide places to stay for families with children who are hospitalized receiving medical care. Ronald McDonald’s Houses provide over 7,200 bedrooms to families around the world each night, with an estimated value of $700 million in lieu of hotel costs.
