Colozzi’s Card & Gift Shop recently held a two-day fundraising event to benefit The Women’s Fund of Herkimer & Oneida Counties, Inc. Customers were encouraged to shop on May 19th and 20th and 10% of all sales were donated to The Women’s Fund. The event, which was held at both Colozzi’s North Utica and New Hartford stores, raised $1,000 for The Women’s Fund. According to Sam Colozzi and Jennien Colozzi, store owners, “The Women’s Fund does so much in our community to support women who face challenges such as poverty, homelessness, or domestic violence. We wanted to do something so they could help more women.”

Partnering with a shop such as Colozzi’s seemed like the perfect match for The Women’s Fund. Cara Fenstemacher, a founding member of The Women’s Fund and coordinator of the Colozzi’s event, spoke on behalf of The Women’s Fund commenting that “Colozzi’s great selection of gift merchandise draws in women, and this gave us the opportunity for women to learn about the work that we do. I think it was a win-win for both Colozzi’s and us.” Monies raised at the Colozzi event will be used to provide grants that will teach women life skills, helping the many women and girls in need in our community.
