As the Fort Bend Junior Service League (FBJSL) concludes its 2010 – 2011 League year, it is pleased to announce that it has raised approximately $336,000 for the Fort Bend County community this year.
Proceeds were raised through various fundraising events, including Sugar Plum Market, Charity Ball, and Glitter & Gloss (hosted by the Fort Bend Teen Service League, a mentoring project of FBJSL), and sales of the League’s second cookbook, Treasures from the Bend, Rich in History and Flavor.
Additionally, the League raised funds through participation in Riverstone’s Grand Soiree and as beneficiary of Sugar Land Town Square Restaurant Week. Numerous worthy Fort Bend County charities benefited from the League’s donations. In addition to funds donated back to the community, FBJSL members will have volunteered an estimated 20,000 hours during the 2010 – 2011 League year.
