17th Annual Puttin' on the Ritz:
March 9, 2013
We're already gearing up for the 17th annual Puttin' on the Ritz black tie-optional fundraiser. Last year we moved venues to the
Fort Wayne Museum of Art and it was a huge success, so we are again holding the event there. We will have food and drink from local Fort Wayne
favorites, as well as live music from Chris Worth and live and silent auctions. Tickets are only $35 per person and
are available by contacting club members, by calling 260-441-2030, or online at Eventbrite.

2012 Children's Shopping Spree
again it is time for this year's
Back to School Shopping event
at Kohl's, where our club members get to know
intimately what each child needs to have in
order to make the next school year successful.
Each year our club strives to affect the lives
of as many children as possible in our
community. Last year we took 70 children Back to
School Shopping, and once again we are pleased
to announce that we will be sponsoring 75
Big Brothers Big Sisters with $100 per child
from the funds we raised at Puttin' on the Ritz.
On top of that we provide each child with a
backpack full of school supplies. This has been
one of our greatest and most humbling events for
our members, where we realize how important a
pair of shoes or jeans or shirts or socks or
even underwear can be to providing confidence in
our youngest members of society. The light in
the face of a child when we finally get it right
says it all - thank you!
Puttin' on the Ritz 2012 was a great
We have so many "thank you's" to give...

On Saturday, March 10th
the Active 20-30 Club of Fort Wayne #700 hosted the
16th installment of our Annual fundraiser
Puttin’ on the Ritz
at the beautiful
Fort Wayne Museum of Art. This was a
homecoming for the Fort Wayne Club as our inaugural
Puttin’ on the Ritz was held at the Museum of Art in
March of 1997 and it is amazing how each of us have
grown over the past fifteen years. As the Museum has
expanded and grown so has the membership, reach and
impact of our Club in the community. This growth has
been made possible by our sponsors, community
partners and by you, our supporters!
Throughout the evening over 200 guests indulged in gourmet
Fort Wayne Chocolate
Fountain while they danced the
night away to the sweet sounds of
Chris Worth & Company.
Club Soda was also on hand to provide beverages
throughout the evening while
gave guests the opportunity to sample multiple wines
from local wineries.
We were happy to offer over seventy live and silent
auction items from local companies, artist,
individuals and Club members. The silent auction
kept guest engaged as they tried to vie for the item
of their desire while the live auction, handled by
kept everyone entertained. For those that prefer a
game of chance we also offered up our signature bar
raffle where winner takes all on the pull of a
single ticket. And who could possibly forget the
beautiful centerpiece flower arrangements from
Lillian Rose Flowers?
The Active 20-30 Club would not be able to impact the number
of children that we currently do without the support
of our community. It may be a single night out on
the town for you, but the funds that you help us
raise can change a child’s entire future. Thank you
so much for your support and we hope to see you at
the 17th Annual Puttin’ on the Ritz on Saturday,
March 9, 2013!
