Volunteers in Action: GFWC Alabama du Midi Woman’s Club (AL)
August 1, 2023
The GFWC Alabama du Midi Woman’s Club President’s Project for 2022-2024 is “The Flowers of Tomorrow are from the Seeds We Plant Today. Creating a Better Tomorrow for Our Special Friends.” Our special friends are adults with special needs and disabilities, who reside in Huntsville/Madison County, Alabama. Four local organizations were chosen for their dedication, opportunities, and range of assistance provided to our special friends. The four organizations include: ESG/Special Camps, 305 8th Street Community, Next Step Farms, and Inside Out Studio at Lowe Mill.
On April 25, 2023, du Midi members hosted a Garden Party Fashion Show and Silent Auction charity event to raise $20,400 in funds to be shared among the four organizations. The day was filled with excitement as Miss Alabama 2022 was present to share her welcome and journey. Local icon, Liz Hurley, News Anchor at channel WAFF-TV in Huntsville, Alabama, was the Mistress of Ceremony. The event received an overwhelming response with over 300 attendees, including our GFWC Alabama President and Federation sisters from across the state.
