Chocolates, diamonds, electronics part of PCCF meeting

Thursday, May 28, 2009

Putnam County Community Foundation Board President Denise Sigworth (left) and Executive Director Elaine Peck (seated) talk with Bill Shuee, Lynda Dunbar, and Steve Mason about chocolate, diamonds and a blu-ray disc player. These items will all be part of the Putnam County Foundation's Annual Meeting on June 17.
Three downtown Greencastle businesses are making a difference to the Putnam County Community Foundation in a unique way. Treasures On The Square owner Lynda Dunbar is donating 150 boxes of homemade chocolates. Mason Jewelers owner Steve Mason is donating a diamond necklace. Shuee and Sons owners Bill and Brent Shuee are donating a new blu-ray disc player.

These three donations are the beginning of a fun raffle that will take place at the community foundation's annual meeting on June 17 in the Union Building Ballroom at DePauw University. North Salem State Bank and Therese Cunningham State Farm Insurance are the event sponsors.

The chocolate boxes will be for sale before and during the event at $10 each or three for $25. Inside one of the boxes is a certificate for the diamond necklace. Inside another box is a certificate for the blu-ray disc player. All of the boxes of chocolate will be opened on that evening in a highly anticipated reveal ceremony.

"We greatly appreciate these businesses donating such amazing items to make this an exciting raffle opportunity for everyone lucky enough to buy a chocolate box," said Eric Wolfe, director of community development at the community foundation.

All the money raised from the raffle will benefit the community foundation's administrative endowment. If anyone wishes to attend the annual meeting and purchase a chocolate box, contact the community foundation at 653-4978.

The Putnam County Community Foundation administers more than 185 funds and has issued more than $5.7 million in grants and scholarships since inception. It is a public charity established in 1985 to serve donors, award grants, and conduct community development to enrich the quality of life in Putnam County.
