Mission & History
In 1985, six women and some cups of coffee started something big in Southlake. Today, the Southlake Women’s Club has over 150 members and has donated over $2M to local charities.
As a highly respected non-profit organization with more than 150 members, the Southlake Women’s Club is responsible for presenting several successful fundraising and enrichment events that, over the years, have helped fund the needs—and fuel the excitement—of the community. These initiatives started quite simply but quickly grew and continue to evolve.
- The annual School Supply Sale, which began in 1995, has generated over $300,000 for participating schools in the Carroll Independent School District. These funds have helped schools both enrich the curriculum for students in grades K-8 and provide school supplies for students needing assistance.
- In the spring of 2000, the club hosted a new community event, and Art in the Square was born. Now with more than a decade under its belt, Art in the Square has helped the SWC raise and donate over $2 million for local charities. This three-day juried art festival, complete with family entertainment, food, and drinks, is held every April at the Southlake Town Square.
- Another highly anticipated SWC event is our annual Valentine Luncheon at our local senior center. We provide a hearty meal and entertainment for a great group of enthusiastic seniors, along with raffle prizes and dancing!
These events, along with many SWC community outreach actions, our social gatherings, and our scholarship program, make the Southlake Women’s Club a unique and worthwhile organization.
The Southlake Women’s Club meets on the second Thursday of every month at The Marq Southlake. Our meetings are open to guests, and we encourage our members to invite any family members, friends, and neighbors who are interested in learning more about the club. And don’t forget, we have many fun-filled social events throughout the year! All of our social events, meetings, and fundraisers appear on our calendar.
