During the year, fundraisers are conducted to support service projects, fund scholarships, community grants and international projects. A total of $12,303 was available through fundraising efforts in 2018-2019 which will be distributed in 2020 to support such activities. These activities are only made possible through the support and participation in Zonta Cheektowaga-Lancaster Foundation fundraisers. Fundraisers may vary on a yearly basis. However, the following are examples of typical fundraisers which are held.
Cold Cash Lotto: A small donation provides you entry into the daily local lottery for the month of February. Three-digit, numbered tickets are based upon the daily local lottery for February. Tickets are valid for the entire month and can be purchased November – January from any member or at a fundraising event. Tickets make great stocking stuffers, secret Santa gifts or a special addition to your holiday greetings. More information on this event will be posted on the calendar when tickets are available.
Trivia Nite: This is a fun filled night of Trivia held in the month of November. This event has been conducted for the last several years and keeps trivia buffs returning. All it requires is getting your team together and your admission fee. Admission also includes pizza, non-alcoholic beverages and dessert. Our Quiz Master tests your team’s knowledge on a variety of topics. So, if you’re planning on attending, study up!!

Yellow Rose Brunch: The Yellow Rose Brunch is one of the Zonta Cheektowaga-Lancaster Foundation fundraisers, but it is also an event that honors local women in the community with our Yellow Rose Award. These are women who have made substantial contributions to the community which serve to empower women and/or girls. The lunch also features a guest speaker who presents a current topic which impacts women. Additionally, there is an opportunity to participate in basket raffles, gift card draws or wine pulls. Donations have been secured through the generosity of local businesses. The event is complete with a delicious brunch.
