Aledo, Illinois - How to avoid being fooled by fake charities will be discussed at Lifetree Café on Thursday, 09/11/2014, at 7:00PM.
The program, titled "How to Sniff Out a Scam: Practical Tips for Giving Wisely," features a recorded interview with a woman who rallied her community to raise money for a friend who lied about needing cash for cancer treatment.
"When I learned I'd been lied to, it was like getting hit in the gut with a baseball bat," says Michele Beck.
Lifetree participants will get tools that will help them tell which charitable appeals are legitimate and feel comfortable giving to worthy causes.
Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available. Lifetree Café is located at Lifetree Cafe-Aledo, 606 SE 3rd Street, Aledo, Illinois 61231.
