Mastectomy pillow project!
Since June 2004 the Benzie Area Zonta Club has hand sewn Comfort Pillows for breast Cancer patients which are distributed by the Munson – Smith Family Breast Cancer Center in Traverse City. The October 2019 Sewing Bee marks the occasion of our Benzie Area Zonta Club sewing and assembling our 10,000th pillow! This is quite an accomplishment in time and funds raised for this project which has sustained for over 15 years!
Each year college scholarships are awarded to Benzie County residents from Benzie Central High School and Frankfort High School. Women returning to undergraduate school, or working to advance their position by certification are also offered the opportunity to apply to Benzie Area Zonta Club for non-traditional scholarships.
