The Zonta Club of Pierre-Fort Pierre is holding its annual Spring Vendor & Craft Show April 4th and 5th at the Northridge Plaza Mall in Pierre. This spring’s Vendor and Craft Show will have over 40 booths, offering a variety of beautiful hand-crafted items and other unique products, as well as a 50/50 raffle. The spring event will be held at the Northridge Plaza Mall in Pierre on Saturday, April 4, from 10:00 to 6:00, and Sunday, April 5, from 12:00 to 4:00.

This year’s Vendor and Craft Show continues the Zonta Club’s long standing tradition of holding craft shows to raise money to fund local organizations and educational scholarships. The Zonta Club held its first version of a craft show in December of 1957. This craft show was a “Come and See” Tea where club member displayed Christmas decorations and gifts and described how to make them. The “Come and See” Tea raised around $120. Almost 60 years later, the Zonta Club will contribute approximately $8,500, this year, to local organizations, projects, and scholarships. The money raised through the Zonta Club’s Holiday and Spring Craft shows is used to fund 14 local organizations and 5 local education scholarships. The Zonta Club’s scholarships, ranging in amounts from $650 to $800 each, are awarded to local high school and Capital City Campus (fka Capital University Center) students. Local organization recipients include Missouri Shores Domestic Violence Center, South Dakota Discovery Center, The Right Turn, and Pierre Area Referral Service.

The Zonta Club of Pierre-Fort Pierre is a part of Zonta International that works on projects around the world to help women improve their economic condition, education, and health.
