GFWC Women's Club of South County
 BOOK & AUTHOR LUNCHEON

Our 20th annual Book & Author Luncheon, held July 10, 2019, at the Dunes Club in Narragansett, raised a record-breaking $35,000, thanks to the financial contributions of generous sponsors, to the raffle prizes and time donated by caring businesses and individuals, and to our attendees, who enjoyed an enriching afternoon devoted to books and authors while donating to a worthy cause. The event is the major fundraiser of the GFWC Women’s Club of South County. Thanks especially to our master of ceremonies, Michaela Johnson, and to our authors, Nancy Thayer, Lynne Heinzmann, and Bill Harley.
