For one day only in Madison, June 28, the Madison 4-H organization will join with Avon in a “Fundraiser For Autism” at four locations around town, from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m., where people can buy Avon products and help raise money for Madison’s local autism group.
The locations will be tables near the entrances at Winn-Dixie, Food Giant, Busy Bee and Barber Cuts By Janice at 409 S.W. Range St. Tables at all four locations will be easy to spot with their colorful balloons, where volunteers will have Avon books and free samples of Avon products, along with free cookies and snacks for customers to munch on while browsing through the catalogues, and money will be collected as soon as orders are placed. If there is a large crowd at any of the locations at 2 p.m., it will stay open a few minutes longer to accommodate all those who would like to buy a few Avon products and help raise funds for autism at the same time.
There will also be a raffle with a drawing for a winner at each location. Tickets are $1 each, so buy as many as you can. Prizes will include autism jewelry and the big prizes will be autism purses.
Loni Kesler, who is overseeing the effort, said that the products should arrive in about a week or two, and will be delivered to the customers.
