Judi’s of Nevada City will be hosting a special fundraising event for The Friendship Club from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on today.

At this event, Judi’s, located at 246 Commercial St., Nevada City, will be offering a 5 percent discount on all regularly priced merchandise while donating a percentage of all sales to The Friendship Club.

Complimentary refreshments will be served throughout the day.

Staff and board members from The Friendship Club will be on hand throughout the event.

This is the 20th anniversary of The Friendship Club, which helps at-risk adolescent girls in Nevada County with a year-round program of educational activities, emotional support and community involvement.

“The Friendship Club is about serving girls at risk but it’s also about building community,” said Judi’s proprietor Judi Weiner. “We all live here together and any effort we put into each other benefits us all. We strive to teach our girls that they play an integral role in making their homes, schools, neighborhoods, and community a better place for everyone. Girls in the club receive a lot of support but they also give back to our community and love doing so.”

The Friendship Club is supported primarily by the generosity of the community and private grants.

“We are so grateful for Judi and Bob Weiner’s continued support of The Friendship Club,” said Jennifer Singer, executive director of the Friendship Club. “For the past several years, Judi has generously donated proceeds from one day of shopping in her beautiful store.”

“We think it’s a win-win for businesses and organization’s to partner in this way,” Singer added. “It’s a fantastic way for The Friendship Club to gain exposure, and in addition to Judi’s generous donation, we always get new donors and volunteers who come to know The Friendship Club through Judi’s shopping event.”

Judi’s carries a wide selection of contemporary clothing and accessories, including Jag Jeans, French Dressing, Nomadic Traders, Habitat, Cut Loose, Comfy and Marucca handbags — and a selection of jewelry and accessories created by international designers as well as local artisans, according to a press release.
