Welcome to the GFWC North Myrtle Beach Woman’s Club
GFWC North Myrtle Beach Woman’s Club is a non-profit charitable organization serving the North Myrtle Beach area and surrounding communities. Our club was organized in 1974 and joined the General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC) in 1979. We are also a member of the South Carolina General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC-SC). Visit our GFWC Information Page to learn more about GFWC.
The GFWC North Myrtle Beach Woman’s Club is a group of ladies committed to improving the lives of others in our community while developing leadership potential in our members. We are active in many community projects and partner with other organizations to help obtain charitable goals. While our members enjoy having fun, our primary focus is community service and leadership development.
Each year we work to award funding to other charitable organizations through two major fundraisers, the Christmas Candlelight Home Tour held in December and the Purses with Purpose Charity Benefit held in April. Explore our Contributions Page for a current list of charity recipients.
Please browse our web site. The Join Our Club page has information about membership. If you have questions, please contact us and we will be happy to answer your questions. You can also visit our Facebook page to learn more about our club.
Save the Date! Purses with Purpose Charity Event Scheduled for April 19th, 2017!
The 2017 “Purses with Purpose Charity Event” will be held on Wednesday, April 19, 6:00 PM at Marina Inn Grande Dunes in Myrtle Beach. There was standing room only last year with over 300 ladies attending the April event. Martin Heat and Air, a local business specializing in heating and air systems, is returning as the 2017 Title Sponsor. Check out our other generous sponsors.
Attendees will enjoy a delicious dinner buffet. A large selection of gift baskets chocked full of gift certificates for services and restaurants, cosmetics, jewelry, spa treatments, weekend getaways, and other niceties lined the entrance to the Nautilus Ballroom in the silent auction.
The live auction will be the main event and promises not to disappoint. A fine selection of handsome male models (Check out our 2016 models!) will showcase gorgeous designer handbags and purses donated by celebrities and local professionals. The models prance and dance to win the highest bid for their purse from some very competitive lady bidders. Vanna White, Dolly Parton, Jennifer Garner, and Louise Mandrell have donated purses in the past.
Tickets are $60 per person this year and are available at the North Myrtle Beach Chamber. You can also purchase your ticket online at www.nmbwcpurses.eventbrite.com. Purchase early as there are a limited number of tickets available due to heavy sponsorship participation.
“Purses with Purpose Charity Event” (Take a peek at last year’s event.) is our number one fundraiser and allows our club to support other charitable organizations. Please check out our Contributions page to view recent contributions.
Last year our club raised $28,000 just in sponsorships. Sponsorships defray event expenses and allows our club to contribute more to charities.
