Now that the dust has settled and we are officially moved into our new location, we can get back to focusing on our #1 priority – our girls! There is nothing more special than our Graduation and Scholarship Dinner coming on May 10. This is a chance for our girls to be recognized for their hard work and perseverance through challenging times. We will recognize five girls this year and while they’ve all been members of The Friendship Club for nearly seven years, their stories could not be more different. We pride ourselves on being here for girls as individuals as well as members of the Club. As each young woman grows and her interests and passions become clear, we are here to help provide connections and opportunities that help her set her direction for the future. This is all made possible, of course, by donors and volunteers who help make this the best place for young women to thrive and grow. Please consider attending our Graduation and Scholarship Dinner this year. This important event raises funds specifically for our Academic Year Program and Scholarship Fund. Scholarships are awarded to girls upon their graduation and are renewable for four years. Girls are encouraged and supported to apply to four-year, two-year and vocational opportunities as appropriate. Guests at the event have the pleasure of hearing first-hand from our girls about their experiences in The Friendship Club, their plans for the future, and how their support makes a difference. If you are interested in attending, please call (530) 265-4311 for more information. This event requires an RSVP and will fill up fast!
