Palm Aire Women’s Club

"Volunteers are the only human beings on the face of the earth who reflect this nation's compassion, unselfish caring, patience, and just plain loving one another.~~ERMA BOMBECK

Are you new to the area and want to get involved in your community? Perhaps you are a long-time resident and you are looking for a way to make a difference in the lives of others.  If so, the Palm Aire Women's Club wants you! 

The Palm Aire Women's Club is a women's service organization dedicated to making a difference in the lives of those less fortunate. We were founded in 1958, and we are still going strong. We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and all of our fundraising proceeds go directly back to the community in the form of scholarships to students from State College of Florida and Manatee Technical Institute  and donations to worthy local charities.

Our two main fundraising events each year are our Fashion Show in November and our Card and Game Party in February. Additionally, we have speakers, authors, theatrical presentations and all other forms of entertainment at our monthly luncheons.  Less formal “mix and mingles” are held periodically in members’ homes or at the club. 

So what are you waiting for? Join now and get involved! Meet new friends, experience enjoyable social events and make a significant difference in someone’s life!

Membership in the Palm Aire Women's Club is open to all women in the Sarasota community. Annual dues are $25.  Monthly luncheons are held in the Palm Aire Country Club dining room from October-May. For more information, please contact our membership chair Peggy Fainelli,
