Ladies Auxiliary

Ladies Auxiliary President Sue DuFour

The Ladies Auxiliary meets the second Monday of each month in the dining room of the Lodge. There is a no-host bar at 11:00 AM and lunch at 11:30 AM. The meeting begins at 12:30 PM, followed by cards and games for those who wish to play. The dues are currently $12.00 per year and the membership is over 240 members.

The main function is to support the Elks and their charities such as:
• Children Research Center at the Steel Memorial Hospital in Tucson, Arizona
• The Elks Youth Camp
• Veterans Projects at the Arizona Veterans’ Home every month.
• The Elks National Foundation (ENF)

The Ladies Auxiliary has several of its own charities such as:
• Nursing Scholarships for nursing students at various Community Colleges.
• Valleyview Community Food Bank by donating a minimum of 500 lbs. of beans and rice each month.
• The DOVES, for Domestic Violence and Elder Abuse of Women over 50.
• Vet’s First contributing to Mary Ellen’s Place, a veterans group that supports women veterans and their children.
• Memory Care and the Alzheimer’s Association

The Auxiliary has multiple fund raising events during the year which support our charities. These events include various theme dances, such as Valentine’s Day, and Halloween. We also run fashion shows, and casino bus trips throughout the year. Raffles are also used to raise money at these events.
We welcome new members that have a valid card as an Elk, Spouse of an Elk or a Widow of an Elk.
