Dear Friends of FBJSL,

This past year was an exciting one for FBJSL, as we celebrated our 10th year of serving the community! While it was fun to reflect on all that we have
accomplished together during the past decade and the changes that have taken place within our organization, it was also a time to be grateful for all
of our partners in the community who have so generously supported our efforts and enabled us to truly make a difference in our community.

Founded in 2001 with twenty-four charter members, the League has grown to include more than 250 adult members as well as the Fort Bend Teen
Service League, comprised of more than 90 young women. To date, our members have contributed well over 125,000 service hours and have hosted
numerous events and projects, raising a cumulative total of $1.8 million for local charities. These accomplishments are made possible through the efforts
of our dedicated members who embrace the opportunity to serve and who so generously volunteer their time and talents to impact the lives of others.

During the 2010 - 2011 year, our various fundraising events and projects enabled us to contribute financially to numerous worthy local charitable agen-
cies. The 10th annual Sugar Plum Market, presented by Methodist Sugar Land Hospital (MSLH), provided a ‘Holly Jolly’ time for everyone involved,
hosting our largest audience to date while raising $155,000, the largest amount yet from any FBJSL event. The ‘Vintage Vegas’ Charity Ball, presented
by Sterling McCall Lexus, was a memorable evening complete with a casino, live and silent auctions, dinner and dancing and raised $144,000 for the
Fred and Mabel R. Parks Youth Ranch and the FBJSL Community Assistance Fund. The Teen League successfully hosted their second fundraising event,
Glitter & Gloss, also presented by MSLH. Throughout the year, our members worked diligently continuing to sell our award-winning second cookbook,
Treasures from the Bend, Rich in History and Flavor. Additionally, we were thrilled to be named as the beneficiary of the Sugar Land Town Square
Restaurant Week and to receive proceeds as a result of our participation in the Riverstone Grand Soiree last fall.

Our direct service and community outreach efforts continue to be a major focus of our League activities. During 2010 - 2011, our members volunteered
at seven local agencies, each serving distinct and varied needs within the community, by providing direct service and serving as the ‘hands and feet’ of
the League in our community. We also had the privilege of partnering with MSLH for the ‘Swing for the Cure’ golf tournament, which raised significant
funds to assist breast cancer patients in our community. Our members also participated in several ‘Difference in a Day’ League-wide service projects
during the year.

We look forward to seeing what the League will accomplish during the next ten years and beyond, knowing that in addition to the efforts of our mem-
bers, our past and future accomplishments are made possible through the support of a generous group of community partners, including corporate and
individual donors, local businesses, event patrons, local media, non-profit organizations and many others who graciously support our endeavors so that
we can continue to make a positive impact in our community. We thank you for your past support and look forward to an ongoing partnership which
will allow us to continue making a positive impact on our community.
Together, we can make a difference!

COMMUNITY ASSISTANCE FUND... COMMUNITY ASSISTANCE FUND
FBJSL’S COMMUNITY ASSISTANCE FUND (‘CAF’)
was created as a means to allow FBJSL to extend its
financial support even further in the community by
providing multiple smaller grants to a greater number
of charitable causes in Fort Bend County. Funding
through this program makes it possible for FBJSL to
reach non-profit agencies that align with the League’s
Position Statements in areas where FBJSL is not able to
provide service from our members or does not have
regularly budgeted monies allocated. The CAF is fund-
ed through a donation of 10% of proceeds raised from
both the Sugar Plum Market and Charity Ball, along
with 100% of proceeds raised from the Fort Bend Teen
Service League’s ‘Glitter & Gloss’ event. Additional
funding is donated to the CAF through partnerships with area businesses. This year the League was given the distinct honor of be-
ing named as the beneficiary of the SUGAR LAND TOWN SQUARE (‘SLTS’) ‘Restaurant Week,’ wherein the week-long event
generated a donation of $6,150 to the CAF. We further partnered with SLTS by supplying volunteers for their ‘Movies Under
the Moon’ and ‘Giving Spirits’ events generating $1,350 for the CAF. Additionally, we also had the wonderful opportunity to
partner with RIVERSTONE on their Grand Soiree event where our FBJSL Sustainers and Members volunteered at the 3D Chalk
Artist Exhibit. Through patrons visiting the exhibit, RIVERSTONE presented the CAF with $5,055 for the League’s participation.
Applications for CAF grants are accepted on an
ongoing basis for grant funding up to $5,000 per                                      2010-2011

                                           few short hours. These projects provide hands-on volunteer op-
                                           portunities for our members and focus on short, intensive com-
                                           munity projects that are completed in a single day or weekend.

                                           HARRAMAN, our members and their families participated in

                                           Meals on Wheels and also helped Lunches of Love pack and

     non-profit organizations. If you know of an agency interested in applying for a DIAD project, please visit our website at www.fbjsl.com.
