The ladies of the Fort Bend Junior Service League (FBJSL) are already preparing for the 2012 FBJSL Charity Ball and Casino ~ “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend,” presented by title sponsor Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital. The event will be held on Saturday, March 3, 2012 at the Sugar Land Marriott Town Square. Guests will experience a “night at the diamond”, complete with a magnificent seated dinner, dancing, casino games, a fabulous live auction, a bid board and silent auction. Proceeds from the event will benefit Lunches of Love and the FBJSL Community Assistance Fund (CAF).

Lunches of Love, a community outreach program of First United Methodist Church – Rosenberg, is committed to helping end childhood hunger in Rosenberg and Richmond by providing a free nutritious sack lunch Monday – Friday during extended school holidays, including Christmas break, spring break and summer. Lunches of Love feeds children in need and those qualifying for the state’s free or reduced lunch program.

Lunches of Love was launched during Christmas break 2009 and has quickly expanded during that time, growing from initially feeding approximately 150 children each day to serving approximately 1,100 children each day during summer 2011. Funds from the Charity Ball will be utilized to sustain their current program, as well as to expand their program to reach even more children.
