Message from the President

Howdy and welcome, we are so happy you found us!

Thanks to the Vision of five extraordinary women who created our League 41 years ago, we have put more than $4 million back into Bryan-College Station, and invested more than 300,000 volunteer hours in our community. The theme for this year is “Recognize Your Impact,” and our League events will focus on ensuring our continued legacy and multiplying our impact within our community.

We celebrate a successful Stuff the Bus, our signature project, this year by purchasing a starter pack of school supplies for all students at Bryan ISD and College Station ISD, Pre-K through 12 th grade. This is almost 30,000 students we have served, and our League year has only begun!

New this year, we will debut our second signature project, Load the Locker, which will focus on ensuring Chrissy’s Closet and Project Hope stay stocked with much needed hygiene products. Please be on the lookout for continued updates on this project, and ways the community can help.

We look forward to a very special Charity Ball on December 9 at 6:30 p.m., whose theme is rooted in our mission and impact. We are excited to host this event at the new Legends Event Center and can’t wait for you to see it!

Our Short-Term Grants program will kickoff soon, and we are excited to be able to provide funds and volunteers to other non-profits that also support our impact and causes. If you know of a non-profit in need, please check our Community Grants page for updated application and eligibility information.

We will host our annual Bargain Blitz fundraiser on March 1-2, 2024, where we have some new surprises and updates in store for the community! We will also open our scholarship application for all graduating senior ladies. Be sure to check the Bargain Blitz page and Scholarship page for more information in Spring 2024.

I hope you will join in supporting us by signing up with our membership, or through sponsorships and donations. We are so grateful for the continued support of our generous sponsors, community partners, and all Bryan-College Station residents. You are all vital to the continued success and legacy of our League!

I see the potential of our League and I believe in the impact we have and can have in our community. I am so excited and honored to lead our League this year, and see our impact multiply with our upcoming events and new opportunities. I look forward to meeting all of you and urge our members and supporters to “Recognize
Your Impact.”

President 2023-2024
