Art in the Square is the primary fundraising event for our organization. We annually give tens of thousands of dollars to NE Tarrant charities as a result of the net proceeds of our nationally-ranked art festival. We have a number of committees and always need your help. There are monthly meetings and all members are welcome to attend. Check with the VP of Art in the Square to see how you can step in and make a difference in the lives of NE Tarrant County women, children, and families.
This committee will produce an annual digital yearbook of all club activities. Members will help document current activities using photos, media articles, press releases, community outreach, club support, fundraising, and any other pertinent information.
This committee helps select and produce our monthly luncheons. Members can help in a variety of ways, from tracking down speakers to creating centerpieces to handling room setup/takedown.
This important committee connects the Southlake Women’s Club to the Southlake Women’s Club Foundation, our funding entity. Monies raised through the School Supply Sale and Art in the Square are disbursed by SWCF to organizations selected by the funding committee. Members will help review grant applications and assist the chair and SWCF board with other related duties. This is a great way for members to get a good view of how we decide which organizations to support and learn how they will use the money we provide.
This committee is responsible for coordinating our twice-annual club raffles, including sourcing prizes from donors. Members will also sell tickets at luncheons and help hand out prizes. In addition, the committee helps brainstorm and produce business-sponsored events to raise club funds. Other tasks include ordering green aprons for our members (worn at club service events and fundraisers) and selling online advertising.
This committee coordinates local service projects for Southlake Women’s Club and is a huge part of who we are as an organization. Members can take on a larger role (if they want to lead specific projects, such as furnishing apartments for women in need) or a smaller but very useful role (if they can only help periodically). Community Outreach receives all the money raised during club raffles, and is responsible for disbursing it to our charitable organizations. In addition, this committee coordinates and produces our much-loved annual Valentine’s Luncheon at the Senior Activity Center.
This committee helps plan and produce the club’s ongoing social activities. Typically, we have one social per month—and occasionally, we have socials that include our significant others (called “Plus One” events). Members help brainstorm ideas, work out logistical arrangements, track event registration, set up for events, and so on—all the activities you’d expect when throwing a party!
This committee manages club membership, including efforts to maintain or grow our size. To that end, the membership committee works to attract, welcome, and engage with members! The committee is also responsible for holding new member events, and for producing our printed membership directory every year.
