The Greater Keller Women’s Club Foundation is celebrating 25 years of giving! GKWC provides scholarships for graduating seniors and financial support for the needy, elderly, battered and lost.
To celebrate, GKWC is hosting the Garden of Roses on April 2, 2020, which will include a glamorous casino night with a three-course steak dinner, casino style gaming, and a DJ to keep the evening hopping, plus a photo booth to capture all the fabulous memories you will have for an evening of entertainment and relaxation. You can look forward to an array of events for your entertainment including a Raffle, Live and Silent Auctions, a Wine Pull and a Restaurant Tree.
Their goal is to make 2020 their best year yet to celebrate their mission and 25 years of supporting our wonderful community. Please visit their website at GKWC.ORG for more information on the event including how to purchase tickets, available auction items, and sponsorship information.
Last month the Greater Keller Women’s Club (GKWC) announced the recipients of the 2019 GKWC Foundation Grants and Scholarships at their annual Distribution of Funds dinner. In a recent press release, a GKWC representative said, “It is always the most rewarding meeting of the year as we are privileged to meet the non-profit leaders and just-graduated high school seniors and hear about the impact GKWC has on the lives in the community. This evening makes our hard work all year so worthwhile.”
