Zonta Club of Greater Sandusky 2021 Raffle

During 2020, the Zonta Club of Greater Sandusky’s annual auction was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In an effort to raise funds for the many programs and projects our club supports throughout our community, Zontians held a raffle in lieu of the Zonta Yellow Rose Brunch and Auction. Thank You to everyone who purchased a raffle ticket making this fundraiser successful!

Factoring in the continual flux of the situation with COVID-19 and limitations on large gatherings, this year Zonta will be holding a raffle – once again – in lieu of the auction. We will review the possibility of hosting the Zonta Yellow Rose Brunch and Auction during 2022 when the health and safety issues are more normalized and stable.

Buddy Benches

What are Buddy Benches?

  • Buddy Benches were invented to combat loneliness and bullying in schools. Sometimes called a friendship bench, these benches are provided on school playgrounds as a way for students to signal to others – whether other students, teachers or counselors – that they are feeling lonely and isolated and need a friend to play with or someone to talk to.

Buddy Benches have been sponsored and placed by Zonta Club of Greater Sandusky at the following schools:

  • Bellevue – Elementary School (2 benches)
  • Huron – Shawnee Elementary School
  • Vermilion – Vermilion Elementary School

Buddy Benches have been ordered for the following schools and awaiting arrival:

  • Sandusky City Schools:
    • Sandusky Early Learning Academy
    • Sandusky Intermediate School
    • Sandusky Primary School
    • The Regional Center for Arts and Academic Studies
