WE LOVE OUR SPONSORS
As its mission, CLS desires to give back to the local community with our time, talents and compassion. To that end, CLS greatly appreciates the support of businesses and individuals who wish to assist us in furthering our cause. We welcome and greatly appreciate our sponsors; our value-added partnership with you helps us promote our vision to change the world.
COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROJECTS AND FUNDRAISING EVENTS
Community Outreach is at the core of all we do and is our driving force! Our main fundraising event is the Red Dress Gala, an upscale and elegant brunch event held each year in November.
The purpose of the Gala is to honor and applaud the extraordinary work of organizations we are passionate about that have a positive impact on the local community; and to introduce CLS as a premier women’s organization with a sincere and deep-rooted enthusiasm for philanthropic efforts surrounding volunteerism. Celebrating the Cause is a mantra which is often expressed among those who are familiar with CLS and our relentless enthusiasm for inspiring, socializing, mobilizing and encouraging like-minded women to be someone greater than themselves and volunteer!
The Gala is open to members, guests, and the general public, and is by far our most anticipated and well attended fundraising event of the year. .
CLS can only achieve its goals with the assistance of generous donations from members of our community.
