The Greater Keller Women’s club is a group of community-minded women who host book clubs, fashion shows, game nights and craft auctions. We also raise money for charities and nonprofits through its own 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, The Greater Keller Women’s Club Foundation.
The club was formed as a way to bring Keller women together for fun and friendship, though community service has always been an integral part of the organization. For example, in addition to hosting speakers at the monthly luncheons, the club provides food for the Valentine’s Day lunch at the Keller Senior Center and puts up Christmas trees at the fire stations, Library and police stations for Christmas.
“We provide a way for people to volunteer,” Sherman says. We volunteer in the schools with reading buddies. We also volunteer at community events.”
Caroline Sherman joined the Greater Keller Women’s Club in 2007 and now she’s president of the organization.
“They were very welcoming to me and that’s what great about the keller Women’s Club” says Sherman, a British native. “We have women in all different places in their life and they all connect in the club.
The Greater Keller Women’s Club has 275 members and always looking for more. The 22 year old group has donated more than $1.18 million to the community through its Foundation.
Groups helped by the Women’s Club Foundation include the Battered Women’s foundation and Christ’s Haven for Children.
Volunteer opportunities abound for members. The biggest event of the year is the Garden of Roses Fashion Show. This year it will be held at the Bowden Event Center. The majority of the money raised goes to the Foundation to fund scholarships for the seniors in the Keller ISD, as well as large donations to local charities. The next fashion show is March 24, 2018.
