Our main fundraiser is the Zonta Expo - we put on every year the first Thursday in October at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center. We sell booth space to showcase local businesses. There is also a style show, cafe, silent auction and a motivational speaker. We sell entrance and raffle tickets to win $1000. In October 2008 we celebrated 25 years of the EXPO!! The money we raise at the EXPO is granted locally to non-profits who work to improve the status of women and children, and to Zonta International. Over the past 25 years we have granted over $300,000 from Expo profits.
