BUY PECANS AND SUPPORT THE SCCW SCHOLARSHIP FUND!
Check out some tried and true recipes from Susan Lavine on our pecan recipe page!
The Smith College Club of Washington’s main fundraising effort is the annual pecan sale that we conduct in the fall of each year. Again this year, Smithies who are into baking and giving gifts led us to a very successful pecan sale, as many used the bags of pecans as gifts and for their own baking. We sold 792 bags of plain pecans and 288 bags of chocolate covered pecans. We offer our heartfelt thanks to all those who bought pecans from the SCCW in 2021. We hope you’ll be back next fall to buy even more pecans!
Thanks to our successful sale, we’ll be able to send a sizeable donation to the club’s Endowed Fund that is managed by the college. All profits from the pecan sale are sent to the Endowed Fund and proceeds from this Fund are distributed annually as scholarships to local students.
Our network of Smith alums who sell pecans make this pecan sale work. Special thanks to these volunteers: Anne Abend (’76), Alisa Beyninson (’99), Caroline Soleliac Carbaugh (’66), Colette de Marneffe (’82), Kristy Keteltas (’88), Mindy Kotler (’78), Pru Lake (’64), Suzanne Mucchetti (’91), and Cheryl Stadel-Bevans (’90).
We also appreciate the assistance of local stores that sell our pecans: Brookville Market in Chevy Chase, MacArthur Beverages in NW Washington, and Morgan CARE Pharmacy in Georgetown. Please patronize these businesses throughout the year.
Thank you for supporting our fundraising activities. Because of your generosity, several students from the Washington area will receive scholarship money to Smith next year.
