Cliff Rose Ladies’ donation helps Stepping Stones
The annual holiday luncheon and raffle by the Cliff Rose Ladies group was held on Tuesday, Dec. 11, at the Prescott Centennial Center.
The proceeds from the raffle and silent auction, including several tax credits, came to $4,905. Each year we donate the proceeds to Stepping Stones, an agency that provides shelter and transitional housing to women and children while attempting to start a new life.
