A History of Fun and Fulfillment
Colleyville Woman’s Club (CWC) was founded in 1978 as a Newcomers Club by six women gathered in a Colleyville bank with $25 donated by the Colleyville Chamber of Commerce, CWC has evolved into a non-profit volunteer service organization, that has raised over $4 million to make better the lives of hundreds of women, children and families in our community. Although founded as a social group, Colleyville Woman’s Club quickly evolved into a service organization dedicated to philanthropy and education. By the mid 80’s, the group began to contribute to Women’s Haven of Tarrant County, published its first cookbook, A Taste of Tradition, and held its first Holiday Home Tour (1985) and Fashion Show (1986). In 1982, the “Circle of Hope” theme was adopted to reflect the Club’s commitment to philanthropy and community support. To allocate its funds, the Club instituted an allocations and grant process for distributing fundraising proceeds. In 1990, CWC was the first recipient of the Star-Telegram Northeast Edition’s Club of the Year Award. Numerous awards followed.
