This past Thursday, May 16 at Colleyville Center, Colleyville Womens Club hosted its annual Caring with Commitment Luncheon that celebrates their year filled with making friends, raising charitable funds, attracting new supporters and determining the members’ philanthropic priorities. Members, supporters, youth and representatives of supported charities gather to receive funds and recognition for accomplishments — truly a celebration of CWC’s mission and all that help achieve its accomplishment.
Each year, CWC members dedicate their time and resources to plan and execute two major events – the Holiday Home Tour and the Lunch with the Girlz Fashion Show and Benefit. Fundraising dollars from these events, combined with other revenue opportunities, enable CWC to award scholarships and grants to outstanding youths, charities and community projects. In turn, these deserving recipients continue to transform not only their own lives, but the lives of countless others in Northeast Tarrant County.
CWC named GRACE’s very own Seasonal Programs Coordinator, Lori Stevens, Rookie of the Year and honored her at the luncheon! Lori is a vital and dedicated leader at GRACE, who wholeheartedly pours love into the lives of our clients, volunteers, and staff. She is the keystone of our life changing GRACE Christmas Cottage and Feed Our Kids Program. The organization also awarded charitable gifts to GRACE and other local agencies. A representative of each charity was brought on stage and a brief history of its work and mission was highlighted.
GRACE thanks the Colleyville Woman’s Club for their continued support and congratulates all the award and scholarship winners – many thanks for all you do in our community. We are so very proud of and grateful for the amazing work of our remarkable Lori, and wish to applaud her hard work, commitment, and honorable recognition!
