Carol Fritz is the president of the Brunswick Eagles #3505’s Ladies’ Auxiliary. Fritz, who has been president the past 12 years, enjoys what she does because a large portion of the money they raise from events hosted throughout the year goes to those who truly need it in Medina County.
The Ladies’ Auxiliary donates to a variety of Medina County non-profits and charities, ranging from the Battered Women’s Shelter, Children Center of Medina County, the Brunswick All-Inclusive Playground and the HANDS Foundation, to name just a few. About 60% of all funds earned helps to support these organizations and others.
Recent fundraising events include basket raffles, dinners, bus trips, and in the summer a music show in the Brunswick Eagles Pavilion. They also hold special events like their annual “Breakfast with Santa,” for Eagles’ members and their children/grandchildren.
Fritz said one of her responsibilities is to encourage involvement from those around her. “I try to get people to help and all that they do is amazing,” said Carol. And, she says it’s a win-win, as she in turn receives a good feeling from all the nice people she meets at the events.
Carol said the Auxiliary could always use more people to help. If interested, call Brunswick Eagles #3505 at (330)-225-4217, or fill out an application at 349 Pearl Rd, Brunswick, OH 44212.
