    Hello Ladies of The League Club

     Leslie Stahl, Her Stories Today
    FUNDRAISER NETS $322,672 FOR GRANTS 
    IN 2019

    We are happy to announce that Lesley Stahl, Her Stories Today, resulted in Community Trust Fund grant distribution funds of $322,672.
      
    Next spring, after our Community Involvement Committee completes its work, The League Club will have distributed approximately Four and A Half Million Dollars to deserving agencies in Collier and Lee Counties! 
    Our 156 Circle of Friends members and community sponsors should be proud of their work to further develop our commitment to community. 

    Congratulations and many thanks to President Liz Winebrenner, Gigi Stewart, Jane Stone, Katherine Caskey, and Denise Cazobon and their committees for helping make this possible!

    CIC IN ACTION

    Each year the actions of our Community Involvement Committee result in the awarding of grants to approximately 30 community agencies.  The process of reviewing grant requests, site visits, and thorough vetting of each agency is both arduous and rewarding.  So that League Club members can learn a little bit about each of our 2018 grantees and how funds will be used, we will highlight one agency per week in our weekly eblast.  Look for the title "CIC IN ACTION" Following is our first installment. 






    Giggles and Grins from Guadalupe Center

    The CIC has awarded a 2018 grant to the Guadalupe Center to help support their new Smart Start Program. This program extends the reach of Guadalupe’s early childhood education by providing educational support to 50 additional families in the Immokalee community.  It enriches the learning of preschool children during the critical years of learning development and works towards having these children ready for Kindergarten.

    Each child in the program receives a free book to take home.  Often this is the only children’s book in the home. The program also supports the parents by teaching them how to interact with their child in an educator-guided, curriculum-based series of activities. The happiness on everyone’s face is clear. This program is a winner.

    Naples Tables

    The League Club’s New Fundraiser

    Celebrating Style, Food and Fun

    Naples Tables  will feature:

    • A delicious luncheon at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort
    • Imaginative presentations of both elegantly and whimsically designed table tops
    • A lively presentation by James Farmer, a professional gardener, floral and interior designer, cook, author and lifestyle expert
    • A Saturday evening, March 9, Patron Party in a beautiful setting    ___________________________________________________________

    The League Club Plans Ahead!

    Thank you to the 258 TLC members (out of a total of 590 emails sent) who responded to the “Planning Ahead” survey.  This 44% return rate is truly remarkable - much higher than the vast majority of all surveys sent. 

    The results are:

    1)       64% prefer a variety of days and times for meetings and events

    2)       Lunch was the most popular time, but breakfast and late afternoon also          received many votes

    3)      The type of event most requested was 5-7:00 pm with speaker or entertainment.  Betsy Barton’s son’s presentation a couple years ago set the bar very high and was mentioned several times.

    4)      The second most requested was a bus trip (plans are in the works right now)

    5)      Following close behind - 5-7:00 pm without a speaker

    6)      which was tied with 'Welcome Back Party' 

    Many of you offered comments and suggestions and we appreciate your thoughtful responses.  In our planning for next year, we are addressing such issues as prices for lunch, offering a variety of educational programs, finding event locations both north and south, as well as central, presenting a “new” fundraiser, offering an arts related program, changing “Girls’ Night Out” to February so more members will be in town, and in general, finding ways to enjoy each other and our club in a wide variety of circumstances.

    A full calendar of programs and events will appear in our fall newsletter, and in the meantime, please watch for updates in the weekly eblasts. 

    Many thanks,
    Charlene
