HOW FUN!!!

A Great Success Combining Fund Raising and Fellowship

A group of our SWCJAX ladies came together as a FUN-draiser while painting wine glasses at The Winey Wench this summer. Just look at these amazing works of art. This was a great event to just have some fun while raising $$ for charity our Club supports. Ladies...we raise our glass to you!

GFWC FL D4 Meeting @ ORC! 

Kudos to ALL the ladies who made this event such a festive and organized event. Cathy Stringer and her team and Club volunteers worked tirelessly to make this event such a huge success. SWCJAX came away with 6 First Place and 10 Second Place — a 1st or 2nd place in EVERY category!

What an honor and privilege to partner with such an exemplary organization as Rethreaded. Rethreaded, a Jacksonville-based nonprofit, expertly uses upcycled materials -- much of it from retired Southwest Airlines seats -- to make purses, bracelets, earrings and much more. Our Club had the honor of hearing how this group of women are helping other women break the chains of trafficking through job skill training & lifestyle guidance! Thank you Stephanie & Shirley for sharing your stories with us!!! Our Members had the opportunity to do some early Holiday Shopping by purchasing products made by this much-needed organization. We are passionate in our support for this is a wonderful cause!!!

We enjoyed our March speaker, Lynn Joyner, from the Empowerment Ranch...we love to support organizations in our area that make an impact on environmental & educational issues! This ranch provides hands-on experiences to those with special needs, for families & volunteer groups. Thanks, Helen, for introducing us to such a great organization!

What an AWESOME EXPERIENCE to learn first hand on what goes on during the Operation Smiles procedures during our February General Meeting. MJ Kapuna, RN and her husband, who also travels for these surgeries, have been volunteering for over 8 years to many different counties doing these life-changing surgeries (and in many cases...many surgeries). Our Club is proud to be a part of this GREAT organization!!!

Our Special Guest Speaker at our January 9th meeting was Lesley Wells, from Daniel’s Kids. Our ladies love to learn about great organizations that to help improve the lives of children in our area!

What an awesome privilege to partner with such a great organization like our special guests from Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) as we presented them with the funds raised during our Garage Sale in November!

Aaron Lewis from Independent Living Resources Center was our November Speaker. We LOVE partnering with such a great group providing such unique and important resources for our community. Thanks, Dianne for letting us know about such a fabulous organization ILRC is and how they were able uniquely to help your family.

We are currently planning exciting field trips to learn more about the organizations we support:
