Hello again, TWL Members!
We are a week away from the drawing for the raffle.  If you have your raffle tickets sold, we need your ticket stubs and money!  If you haven’t finished selling your tickets, please do so!  We want to make sure we have all the raffle tickets by next Monday.  The raffle ticket money helps offset Gala costs and we need your help!
If you have any questions or need any help getting the raffle tickets and money to us, contact one of the Board Members.
And remember, this coming Sunday we need as many people as we can to be at the League House to help transport from there to the Fair Pavilion.  Sunday is the first day and very important to getting the Gala started. The Gala is officially SOLD OUT!! We can place people on a waiting list if they want, but no guarantees.
Thanks for all you do to help TWL be such a success and important part of Fayette County!
Marching to a Million…

Hello, TWL Members and Happy New Year!
 
The Board Members and I wish you a healthy, joy-filled new year.  And now to our job at hand!…
 
The Gala is less than seven weeks away!  Can you believe it?!  The votes have been tallied (thanks to all the Charities Committee for your hard work) and the invitations are in the mail (thanks to the Invitations Committee).  Chairs and Members of the Live, Big Board and Silent Auction Committees have been putting their creative and energetic heads together to have one of the best auctions ever!  Any of you who have ideas or contacts to add to this effort would be greatly appreciated.  Contact us to help!
 
Holly is coordinating with Kaywin for the schedule for Gala Week and you will be kept up-to-date.  Think how you can help.  We need you!  Heads up: one of the biggest volunteer days is the Sunday before the Gala, February 25. That is the day that we need as many helpers (some big, strong men included!) to help bring all of our supplies, etc from the League House to the Fair Pavilion.  We will need trucks and able-bodied volunteers.  It will be a full day since it is our first day in the Pavilion.  More specific details will be coming closer to the date but please reserve February 25th as a volunteer day for TWL!
 
The color scheme for this year is black, white and gold with a splash of red.  It will look amazing as always!
 
That is it for now.  If you need any information or have ideas and thoughts, please email, call or text.  We appreciate your membership and involvement.  Together we have made a huge impact on Fayette County and with your continued support we will achieve our March to a Million!

Thanks and best regards,
Denise Winter
President

Dear Members, Past Members and Prospective Members,

I apologize for the last minute cancellation of our Member Meeting scheduled for Tuesday, August 29th.  Given the weather uncertainty and the possibility for the Fire Department needing that room for emergencies, we felt it was better to cancel.

The reason for the meeting was to kick off the Texas Women’s League “March To A Million”!  The Board Members and I are excited that this goal is reachable through the proceeds of our 2018 Spring Charity Gala.  Now, here is where YOU come in!…

We need and want your help!  Your membership is crucial to our success.  Your involvement and participation matters.  We invite you to become involved.  Your voice and votes and efforts are what it will take to achieve this goal.

Since we are only about a month away from the Fall Dinner, which is scheduled for Tuesday, October 24, the Board decided to incorporate the Member Meeting into the Fall Dinner.  Please plan to attend.  The evite will be out in the next few weeks.  As usual, representatives from the non-profits who apply for funding will be there.  We want as many members as possible so please put October 24th on your calendar.

The Board will discuss our plans for the Gala and introduce the Chairs for the committees.  After the dinner and voting each Chair will invite members to come and sign up for the various committees.  As I said, we need and want your involvement and commitment to ensure the Gala breaks the million dollar goal.  The Board and I assure you that when you sign up for the committees you will be contacted.  It will take ALL of us to make this the banner year.

If you have any questions or need clarification of any kind before the meeting, please contact me or any Board Member.  We all welcome your input.  Together we will achieve our goal!

Thank you for your involvement and interest in TWL.

Regards,

Denise Winter

President
