Over $500,000 grant monies awarded to Corps and Boys and Girls Clubs at the Fall Membership Tea
September 23, 2014
SAWA awards monies 2014
The Salvation Army Women's Auxiliary welcomed 180 ladies to its Fall Membership Tea held at Bobbie Nau's home in River Oaks on September 23. Auxiliary members and guests enjoyed the music of the Harbor Light Choir as they entered Mrs. Nau's home. Membership Chairman Kristy Lietdke was positioned to accept new memberships and Directory Chairman Justine Klinke passed out Auxiliary Directories to members. The highlight of the Tea was the awarding of over $500,000 in grant monies to Houston Area Corps and Boys and Girls Clubs.  These funds for distribution were raised last spring at our highly popular and successful fundraiser called Reflections on Style Luncheon and Runway Show held at River Oaks Country Club.  Our Chic Boutique in collaboration with the Style Show contributed to the bottom line as it featured and sold "gently used" designer clothes to luncheon attendees and "fashionistas" looking for a bargain at our After Sale.
