What do you get when you have a group of women from diverse backgrounds with a desire to improve the lives of those in need in their community? The Women’s Club of Summerlin! This sisterhood of dynamic women work tirelessly in the Las Vegas community to raise money and collect wish list items for several charitable organizations.
The Vision of the Women’s Club is Summerlin is to grow the membership of women committed to our mission and to expand our reach in the community so that we positively influence the lives of others.
To date the Women’s Club of Summerlin has donated over $320,000 in cash, thousands of dollars in items such as clothing/toys and other resources, as well as, countless volunteer hours to over 35 organizations in the Las Vagas Valley. The largest donations each year come from their Annual Charity Event, held in the fall of each year to benefit one specific charity locally.
In 2014 Project 150 was selected as their charity of choice for their Annual Charity Event raising in excess of $15,500 dollars to help homeless, displaced, and disadvantaged high school students stay in school and graduate. The theme for the evening was “Prom Night An Evening To Remember” and that it was! 223 people joined the Women’s Club of Summerlin for the 19th Annual Charity Event to benefit Project 150 and our mission for an evening of elegance held at the JW Marriott in Summerlin with live entertainment starring Ronnie Lee Twist and The Future Cats. Signature sponsors for the event included St. ROSE DOMINICAN HOSPITALS and James & Eva Martin Charitable Trust/McDonalds.
Thank you is just not enough to express our gratitude for the efforts these women put forth. It is only through the support of highly devoted energetic members of our community that we can continue our mission. The Summerlin Women’s Club was formed in 1995 is now in their 20th year we can only expect to see more incredible dreams come to fruition as the result of this group of women that are truly leaders in the Las Vegas community.
