NCL Laguna's annual fundraiser is a success in large part because of
the generous donations that our own Patronesses contribute or procure
toward our silent auction and raffle. If you have obtained an item for
this purpose, please fill out the relevant information below and a Ways
& Means Committee representative will contact you. Thank you in
advance for your help!
Check back in early April when our Auction pages will go LIVE online so you can preview!
NCL Laguna is a chapter of National Charity League, Inc. Our mission
is to foster the mother-daughter relationship through community service,
leadership development and cultural experiences. Annually, our 300
mother and daughter members contribute more than 11,000 volunteer hours
directly to our philanthropies. Our annual luncheon is a celebration of
many facets of the NCL experience, bringing our entire membership and
guests together for an afternoon of fellowship, fun, fashion and
fundraising for our philanthropies.
Special traditions include the introduction of our newest members
with a jaunt down the runway, and the premiere of our annual video
summarizing our Chapter's collective achievements during the year. Our
senior Ticktockers and their mothers celebrate a special moment as they
share their heartfelt mother-daughter tributes. Then our graduating
Ticktockers get to shine as they model in our energizing and
professional runway fashion show with styles from our partner,
Bloomingdale's South Coast Plaza.
NCL Laguna's fundraising activities throughout the day help support
our Chapter's mission-based programming efforts and donations made from
the Chapter to our partnering philanthropies. In 2014, we granted more
than $47,400 toward these charitable efforts. NCL Laguna created and
supports two programs that are unique to our Chapter, the innovative and
nationally-recognized Sunshine Readers Literacy Program and Kostumes 4
Kids. We in addition granted more than $33,000 in direct gifts to our
partnering philanthropies that included 19 local charities with whom we
also provide volunteer service.
