Charity Update

Because of the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the future feasibility of large gatherings in Gallatin County, the  Gallatin Valley Newcomers Club’s annual auction has been cancelled.

We are in the process of exploring additional fund raising options to ensure our ability to make a substantial contribution to a local charity.  Click on the following  to view:

Recipients 2019:

Our 2019 Charity Auction was held on December 5 at Riverside Country Club. The Newcomers’ holiday auction was a big success thanks to the many member volunteers (well over 50!) and the generosity of the many businesses in our community who donated to our silent and live auctions. And of course to the Newcomers members who participated in the bidding and the cash call.

We are most pleased to announce that we are donating $11,375 to each of our charities:  the Rock Youth Center and the HRDC Warming Center. Heartfelt thanks to both organizations for the services they provide in our community. Checks will be presented to both organizations at our February 5 luncheon meeting.

The Warming Center, a Program of HRDC IX  Mission:  We believe everyone deserves a warm, safe place to sleep during the coldest months of the year

  • The Warming Center offers seasonal shelter to anyone in need- families with children, single adults, and couples are welcome.  Separate sleeping areas are provided. Trained staff and volunteers are on-site at all times during operating hours.    Website
