Why Become a Member?
The Heathrow Women’s Club, Inc. (HWC) was established in 1987 to help bond a new community. Each May, Heathrow Women’s Club, Inc. and Heathrow Women's Club Charities, Inc., donate thousands of dollars as a result of its fundraising efforts to charities in Seminole County which support women and children. The charities currently supported are:
- Bags of Hope Central Florida
- Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida West Sanford Branch
- SafeHouse of Seminole
- Seminole County Friends of Abused Children
After a year of involvement, diligence, and much work, we have the opportunity to hear how our efforts make a difference when the recipients of our donations express their gratitude and appreciation and tell us how we have touched their lives. This is the day we all work for – the day we give to those less fortunate – to help people in our community improve the quality of their lives.
Along the way, we have an opportunity to work and become friends with women who are successful in all ways – from executives to homemakers. There are many opportunities for involvement, leadership and growth. In addition, the Social Committee plans and hosts various activities such as couple's social group dinners, outings, bridge, canasta, book clubs and more. All projects, both social and charitable require support and involvement by HWC members, so we encourage all members to become active, play a part and reap the benefits of meeting many wonderful people while you help those in need as well. We welcome women of all ages and you needn't be a Heathrow Resident, nor a Country Club member to join.
