Benjamin Twiggs is once again hosting their annual fundraiser to raise funds for local charities supported by the Old Mission Women’s Club.
When you shop at the store on Saturday, May 8, 2021, they will donate 15 percent of sales to the club, which in turn helps to support the charitable causes of the club, which are many.
Old Mission Gazette is Reader Supported.

You may shop either in-person at the store, online at their website here, or by calling and ordering via phone with a credit card, (231) 947-0208. But it’s a one-day fundraiser, so it must be on Saturday.
Benjamin Twiggs is located at 1213 E. Front Street in Traverse City, in the Campus Plaza across from the Civic Center.
And don’t forget – the following day, Sunday, is Mother’s Day, so it’s a great way to shop for all the moms in your life and support a local nonprofit Old Mission Peninsula group and their causes at the same time.
Orders received until 11:59 p.m. on Saturday count towards the sales total. Gift certificate sales will apply to the total, too.
Old Mission Women’s Club works year-round to raise funds for local nonprofit groups (click here for a list of some of their grant recipients). They also do a variety of things to help local residents in need, including providing winter apparel to kids, making satin pillowcases for those going through chemo, and donating Thanksgiving dinners and gift-filled Christmas stockings to families in need.
Old Mission Women’s Club is a local non-profit organization formed in 1931, designed exclusively for charitable and educational purposes. All monies raised from fundraisers and “donation days” are granted back to local non-profits each year.
You are certainly in for a treat when buying gifts and food items from Benjamin Twiggs, your place for all things cherry! Thanks in advance for shopping there on Saturday, May 8, 2021 to benefit local charities.
A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper. Because the Gazette is mainly reader-supported, I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks my way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP. Check out the donation page here. Thank you so much for your support. -jb
