WHO WE ARE
The Grandmothers Club of LaCasa is an organization of all women who strive to make life better for those less fortunate, especially the children of North Port and surrounding areas. Fundraisers are held throughout the year and disbursements are made in December unless an immediate need is brought to our attention. In 2013 over $12,000 was raised and given to 22 organizations.
