The Muzet H. Hall Foster Youth Scholarship Luncheon
This is our inaugural scholarship luncheon. It is named after Mrs. Muzet H. Hall who was a childrens advocate for over 60 years. Mrs. Hall volunteered with Job Corp and both Central and Los Padrinos Juvenile Hall creating many innovative programs for youth. The proceeds from this luncheon will help deserving foster care youth to further their education.
We partnered with N.C.N.W., Virtuous Women Sunday School Class, Girl Scout Troop #2435,Time Warner Cable Company and the Junior League to host an annual Christmas party for the veterans at the Westwood Hospital facility. At the parties we provided dinner and gifts to 100 plus veterans.
