In 2013, the GFWC Woman’s Club of Spokane gave $22530.00 in reduced rate rentals to local non-profits and community minded organizations working in areas that coordinated with GFWC Community Service Projects and Signature projects, and assorted religious organizations needing a facility for regular services or large special occasion celebrations.   Another $850 of club member in-kind and cash donations were provided to various local causes from Ronald McDonald House to Hope House. The club also spent $24000.00 maintaining our historic clubhouse so the public can continue to have access to this 100 year old building for all sorts of community needs from Wednesday night contra dance to family weddings.   We are proud of our continuous service to Spokane since 1907.


3nd Annual Pie & Whiskey Reading

Monarchs, take note: “Let them imbibe pie and whiskey” doesn’t quite have that history-books ring to it, but it’s effective.

The masses have spoken, and the Pie and Whiskey Reading is back for 2014. Before you decide if you’ll be in attendance, ask yourself the following: Do I enjoy free pie? Do I enjoy free whiskey? Do I enjoy world-class fiction, nonfiction, and poetry?

Hosted by Sam Ligon, fiction writer and associate professor of creative writing at Eastern Washington University, and Kate Lebo, Seattle-based poet and renowned pie baker, the event will feature twelve festival authors reading flash fiction, flash nonfiction, and poetry inspired by the following quotes:

“Whiskey is all right in its place– but its place is hell.” — Billy Sunday

“After Mother died, her red dress continued baking pies.” — from The Book of Frank, by C.A. Conrad

This year’s readers include: Anthony DoerrAdrianne HarunJonathan JohnsonKate LeboSam LigonKate ReedNicole SheetsSharma ShieldsAlexandra TeagueJess Walter and Maya Zeller.

This event is 21 and over only.

Time: Doors open at 8:15 p.m.
