Our logo, the dogwood, has four petals, which symbolize our COMMITMENT, COMMUNITY, CHARITY AND CAMARADERIE. These four concepts have merged to make Kingwood Women’s Club bloom in our community. We are COMMITTED to our COMMUNITY, we do CHARITABLE works within it and we have built a marvelous spirit of CAMARADERIE among us.
Kingwood Women’s Club holds an annual Holiday Marketplace and luncheon in the fall to raise funds for distribution to our area philanthropies. This year’s event will be Monday, October 24, 2016 and Tuesday, October 25, 2016 at the Humble Civic Center. This shopping event features jewelry, specialty foods, women’s and children’s clothing and accessories, holiday decorations, floral, gift items, home decor and much, much more from a wide range of vendors from all over the Gulf Coast. Many raffle items are also available. Event tickets and vendor information can be obtained by contacting the club at email@example.com

The club’s newest enterprise is “Project Mammogram.” This program, administered through Northeast Hospital Foundation, helps women who either do not have insurance or whose incomes are not low enough to qualify for Medicaid to get mammograms or ultrasounds. Kingwood Women’s Club was able to provide the initial $5,000 donation in 2001 to establish “Project Mammogram” because of the overwhelming success of our annual fundraiser. Through the 2013-14 Club year, Kingwood Women’s Club has donated a total of $198,207 to Project Mammogram.
Project Mammogram was selected for an oral presentation at The Susan G. Komen Foundation’s eighth annual Mission Conference, A Promise in Action, which was held at The Grand Hyatt in Washington, DC, June 5 – 7, 2005. Two of our members made the presentation which included the goals achieved and the crucial role of Kingwood Women’s Club’s funding and volunteer time for the project.
