SEBASTIAN -- During the 2012-13 season, the Original Welcome Wagon Club of Sebastian had two major fundraisers; the Fall Follies Variety Show held October 19, 2012 and the Fly Into Spring Fashion Show held on April 6.
These events, along with the monthly luncheons, which are fundraisers in which the members participate, raise money for local community charities and organizations, and scholarships for eligible seniors at Sebastian River High School.
The members contribute monthly to the Lords Table and this year gave $100 to the EL-DOEs of the Sebastian Elks lodge in support of the packages that are sent regularly to the soldiers overseas.
At the awards luncheon this year, the Welcome Wagon Club was able to award three $1,000 scholarships to Diana Marentes, Jashanea Bryant, and Dylan Sweet and four $500 checks to SafeSpace,
The Homeless Family Center, Camp Haven, and the Sebastian Elementary School Backpack Program.
