On October 1, the GFWC South Baldwin Woman’s Club held its 2nd Annual Gulf Shores Goes Pink. All municipal buildings, bridges, and palm trees at Gulf Place were lit pink at dusk. This was a free community barbecue at Gulf Shores Fire & Rescue Station 1 in Gulf Shores. All donations were made to the Guardians of the Ribbon: the Pink Heals of Lower Alabama. The Pink Heals were formed to bring awareness to breast cancer—and pink was for the moms. Cancer is not age nor gender specific. All club members have been touched by cancer in some way, whether it be themselves, a family member, a neighbor, or a caregiver. The GFWC South Baldwin Woman’s Club, the Pink Heals, and Gulf Shores Fire & Rescue care! Money raised for the Pink Heals stays in the community to help those who need it the most.

Cherie Lee Williams
Cherie Lee Williams is a vibrant leader who has found GFWC to be a wonderful outlet for her love of community service and her can-do attitude. As both the President of the Mesquite Club (Nevada) for 2016-2017, as well as a 2016 LEADS candidate, she quickly learned the value of making connections in order to bring positive change to the world.
Success For Survivors Scholarship
Each year, GFWC awards scholarships to help intimate partner abuse survivors obtain a post-secondary education that offers a chance to reshape their future by securing employment and gaining personal independence.
Mesquite Club, Inc.
The Mesquite Club, Inc., located in Las Vegas, Nevada, started out the club year with 120 members and now has 132 members. How has the club gained a dozen new members over such a short time? One reason is Club President Cherie Williams’ commitment to raising public awareness of the club in any way possible.
