|Organized in 1980, the Balvaunuca Club has been an active civic club for women in the Perry area. Most people are curious about the name Balvaunuca, which was derived from two Indian names Balseria and Savaunuca. Club members began fundraising to help the needs of women and children in Houston County by selling Cokes during the Perry Art Committee’s presentation of the Augusta Ballet in 1980.
We’ve come a long way since then. Today our club, comprised of just 35 active members, proudly hosts Mistletoe Market in Perry during the third weekend of November. Now in its seventh year, our club was able to give nearly $40,000 back to the community as a result of the 3 day shopping extravaganza last year.
