Funds raised from Puttin’ on the Ritz are utilized to support our philanthropic and hands-on events held throughout the year. Our signature philanthropic event is the children’s shopping spree held in August of each year. Over the past four years alone, the Fort Wayne Club has assisted nearly 500 children from local agencies with their back-to-school needs.
Everything that the Active 20-30 Club of Fort Wayne does for the children in our community is made possible by our sponsors. To continue our mission, we are asking for your sponsorship of the 20th annual Puttin’ on the Ritz fundraiser.
