Zonta ladies turn shopping into a worthy cause

One of the activities that most – if not all – women enjoy is shopping. But what if this activity is also imbued with a noteworthy cause? This is exactly what the ladies of the Zonta Club of Makati and Environs did recently at Crate & Barrel Aura, where they turned shopping into a fundraising event with the ultimate goal of giving back.  During the event, Crate & Barrel SM Aura Premier Store gave discounts for the benefit of Zonta Club of Makati and Environs’ Psychological Center for Sexually Abused Children.

“Among our many goals, Zonta Club aims to promote gender equally, education, and skills training for our nation’s women,” says ZCME president Rosie Go.  “Equally important to Zonta is ensuring these women’s health and safety.  Our club tirelessly empowers women through service and advocacy,” she adds.
